Myself and my husband stopped here for lunch on Sunday and we were very pleasantly surprised. The staff were lovely, the interior was super cosy (which was just as well as a little chilly outside!!) and the food was amazing. There was plenty of choice on the menu, and myself and my husband tried the roast and it was just... More

This is a must visit pub/restaurant. We went for a meal in the evening and coffee again the following morning. The meal was first class. The atmosphere was lovely. Its full of old world charm but is modern and clean without compromising its surroundings. Watch out for the restaurant manager Michelle, she is totally nuts and had us laughing all... More

We had walked down through the woods from the view spot at the top, and ordered drinks and menus. We ordered taster dishes, one vegetarian and one fish, to share between four adults. Certainly one would be a good meal for one person, but as we only really wanted a snack these sufficed. The contents were varied and interesting, and... More

my wife and I dined here a few weeks back when we were staying in the forest of dean. First thing of note is that there's only pay and display parking down by the pub, not an issue for an evening meal after 6pm, but something for people to be aware of. Staff were all polite and welcoming, especially our... More

The Saracens Head Inn is a great little pub on the edge of the River Wye. It has a wide selection of ales which appear to be kept very well from my experience. The food is also excellent. Not the cheapest beer and food but very enjoyable.

We have never been 'foodies', and rather scoffed at the 'little food with lots of decoration', but this restaurant changed that notion. Excellent food - so tasty and succulent, with lovely presentation and ample to eat. We reserved our table for the two visits, and enjoyed being in the room where the fire was burning (may be worth asking to... More

What an experience. This pub / restaurant serves top quality. THere are dishes that would not be out of place in a gourmet restaurant, and they are cooked to perfection. There are also "pub staples" - fish and chips, pie and mash etc. which again, are very well done with excellent taste. A good selection of local real ales, which... More
