I had a lovely evening at the Saracens Head recently. My friend and I dined Al Fresco, as it was a beautiful Summer's evening and there were some canal boats moored up. This added to the lovely atmosphere. The food was very good and so was the service. Definitely worth a visit.

This pub is a must on a summers day or evening. Sat alongside the canal it's a perfect location for catching sun and enjoying good food. The pub isn't too far from ormskirk and southport. It's modern, clean and welcoming with lovely friendly staff. The food we had garlic bread and platters was delicious we'll certainly be venturing back. Perfect... More

We had only been in for a drink about two months ago but the surrounding, ambience and great choices both with the drinks and menu made us choose this restaurant above every other this evening for a joint celebration. We arrived without having booked, and reserved a table for half an hour later. The food was amazing, great choices for... More

Went to the Saracens Head for a canal barge trip with high tea which left from the canal running along side. As we were booked for 4pm we thought we would have lunch there earlier. What a surprise, the lunch menu was good with a variety of choices. When the food came it was absolutely delicious. The staff were friendly... More

Visited for the first time with family and had a wonderfully delicious meal. The foccacia bread with 'dukkha' was amazing - going to make it myself too it was that good! I had the linguine with king prawns and it was all good to perfection! Definitely will be visiting again ☺ Very friendly and accommodating with my two young nephews... More

I arrived at Saracens Head as I was walking along the Leeds Liverpool canal so dropped by for a drink initially but decided to have a meal. I had a seat outside so went inside to order. I stood in the restaurant but they told me to order at the bar as I was seated outside. The bar staff, who... More
