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

We had Saturday lunch at the Saracens Head for the first time yesterday. The food was fresh and tasty and the staff were efficient and friendly. Great pub in a lovely spot by the canal. Will definitely be returning to sample more of the menu!

Been here several times and have always been impressed with both the location and the friendly helpful staff. The decor of the venue is too a high standard and tables and chairs to a comfort above what is normally seen in this type of business. Which is just as well as there are not too many places where you can... More

Great menu and good value in a good location and the place was spotless (I always think clean toilets reflect well on the attitude of management!)

I found this place by accident whist cycling down the canal a couple of weeks ago. Decided to try it out today with the family. It is amazing! The decor is of a high standard, it has a high class feel to it. The service was excellent, very attentive and always offered help before we had to ask. All staff... More

Four of us went to this restaurant last night, Tuesday. The service was first rate but the food was fantastic. We all had different meals and each one was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Would highly recommend.

This is the second time I have dined at the Saracens Head. Unfortunately this time wasn't as good as last. I had a Ploughmans Lunch. While it was a lot better than the Ploughmans I had at the Sparrowhawk last week, it still wasn't great. 3 different pickles is a bit much. The gammon was excellent, as was the pork... More

Went this evening with a party of 8. All food great and service top notch. Had a table over looking the Canal and watched the boats chug past as we ate. Starters, Mains & puddings came out in a timely manner with no one waiting.Good kids play area for post meal tire out is great.

Ate here on a couple of occasions and have been very impressed. Food is excellent and service top notch (Sophie) Prices are a little high but servings a large so there Is relative value. The décor is superb and this is very much a year round place to eat.
