After visiting The Saracens Head last year for New Years Eve we decided to come back for the New Years Eve just gone! We had a lovely warm welcome into the pub by the host followed by little canapes and prosecco in the bar, before sitting down for our 5 course meal in the restaurant. The food was beautiful and...

Went to this great pub for New Years Eve - had an amazing time!! The staff, and especially Jen the manager, were brilliant and couldn't do enough for us making our group feel really welcome. Dinner was fantastic and the band were awesome .... Drank cocktails whilst playing roulette at the 'fun' casino. Couldn't recommend this pub highly enough.

Unfortunately this place has lost its charm - no sign of welcoming local people - charging £20 for new years eve to walk through the door of a pub and for a measly bit of hotpot with a piece of french stick!! Bizarre! The ship in haskayne was free to get in on new years eve and provided a lovely... More

The Saracen's Head has an attractive canal side setting with good parking facilities. I have visited it once in summer and once in Winter. It is pleasant to sit outside in summer. Most recently I enjoyed a very good evening meal there

We have spent New Years eve at this pub in the past... about 3 years ago and it was amazing... great food...great atmosphere and great music. However this year we were bitterly disappointed. We paid £20 a head and were promised a great evening with a live band. a hot pot supper and a taxi home. We felt the price... More

Visited today for lunch, we arrived very early but received a friendly meet and greet from the front of house and this extended to our very cheerful waitress and the helpful bar man. The pub is light and airy, sitting in a lovely position next to the canal surrounded by fields. The menu is new, extensive and varied and we... More

This is one of our faves. Service is good, surroundings are nice, food is excellent. Have been here at least six times and the food / service has always been very good. The house red is also very nice.

The first thing that impressed me was the attitude of the staff. It was excellent. They fitted us in, we had not booked and they gave a great service from start to finish. It is a refurbished pub with comfortable and spacious sitting areas and a well spaced out restaurant. No listening to next doors conversation here. It has modern... More

Having booked for 8 people at 7.45pm I did not expect to have to make a complaint at 9.10pm because none of has received any food. The table was not ready at 7.45 because a previous party was still using it (these things happen - not a problem), bread and oils were provided to tide us over while the room... More
