Me and my boyfriend visited here a few months ago for tea and have been promising to come back ever since as the food and surroundings were so nice. I decided to have a turkey roast dinner which was gorgeous - plenty of roast potatoes and veg plus a dish of new potatoes too. The food was really... read more

Lovely area, canal is lovely here for a walk before or after lunch or tea in good weather. You can sit out on the ample table in the sun when we get it, and its a gorgeous location. The restaurant is clean, spacious and the waiting staff very friendly. I usually go around lunch and would presume it gets very... More

Service overall good only downfall didn't get asked if I wanted chips or salad with lasagne and ended up with the rabbit food! Staff were attentive Food was nice, lasagne had lots of goats cheese which was good. Camembert starter and pate both need more toast served with them!!

My wife and I visited the Saracens Head today for the first time. We were on our way to Southport but we decided to stop here as it was highly recommended by our friends. What a lovely surprise!. We were lucky to find a table as it was very busy, it being a Sunday. A lovely young waitress Dawn couldn't... More

I ordered parfait and my wife ordered duck ... yep my parfait was superb but the duck was very scarce in the vegetable rolls....... More

We prebooked a table for 15 adults and a child, the staff put us in the conservatory at the front of the pub so we had a great view of the canal. As well as a bit of privacy. We got great service and the starters aswell as the mains came out together. I had the beef pie and could... More

This review is about service and not food. Food is fantastic but service is very important also. So I have 3 complaints which I wish for the Saracens to address - 1 - 1 person serving at the bar. It does not take a lot for a queue to form but having 1 person at the bar severing several people,... More

We stopped here after driving past the place on our way to Ainsdale, it is a very pleasant pub set by the canal side. The weather was nice, the beer garden was busy and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. We opted to eat inside as the sun was going down and the food was very good, everything looked fresh,...
