Situated in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside 2 miles from Althorp House, the ancestral home of Diana, Princess of Wales. A traditional village inn with character and charm. We are a privately owned and run free house with a selection of well kept real ales and lagers plus an extensive wine list. Runners-up in the Northamptonshire Food & Drink Awards 2009. A great place to spend a lunchtime or evening.

Lovely food, cosy atmosphere, great staff

I was at the same group meal on Saturday evening (28 March) and can honestly say it was the best meal out I’ve had in ages. It’s a small country pub and we were a large group of 20, the pub was also full of other customers (we were in a separate room), but the staff were great, really helpful... read more

We have been to the Saracens Head Restaurant a few times now and have thoroughly enjoyed our experiences. The food and service are very good indeed. Love the presentation.

It's a really attractive pub (full of dogs!) that we'd heard was good, perfectly placed for a group of nine of us to 'meet in the middle'. Very impressed with the quality of the food and the cheery service. Will certainly go back.

Two of us had a poor lunch, the quality of the food was really not up to scratch, after reading so many good reviews!! It was a cold winters day and the place has a frosty feel about it and to be quite honest it is shabby and could do with a makeover or to start with a quick lick... More

This is a Quiet country pub with really good food. Staff were very helpful too. Although it was very quiet they did not have everything on the menu so I couldn't be certain how this pub would be under pressure. I will however return to this establishment at a weekend or a busier night and rate it again

Travelling back to Leicestershire from Heathrow, we telephoned late Sunday morning to see if four of us could be received for lunch. No problem - which is probably the motto of the Saracens Head. Warm welcome, as our previous visit, especially from the labrador which escorted us from the car park and a great Sunday lunch. Huge portions, lovely veggies,... More

We travelled as a family to meet near to my mother's house. I booked via Hannah to get a time to suit the family. Whilst we had looked at the website and trip advisor I have to say the reality is even better. There was a good crowd of people eating; staff were polite and attentive; lovely decorations; fantastic service... More

Delicious Sunday roast with pink beef and all the trimmings followed by some quality fruit puddings. A quiet village, just right for a short stroll after before travelling on. Well worth hunting out. Tempted to stay next time.
