We stayed 2 nights in Room 10 to celebrate my husband's birthday. Lovely room with stunning views of the Wye and the double bath was heaven after a full day on the river. Inn was very busy inside and out giving the place a real buzz. Seating not an issue for residents who are given reservations... read more

We had a meal here as a family in July 2015 which we were really looking forward to since we last visited the area 3 years previously as at that point we had a lovely lunch. We booked a table in advance with a rather patronising man who called me 'young lady' twice, despite me being in my 40's, but... More

Tense, unhappy staff. Despite the well presented food, it was significantly overpriced. We won't be going back. The Hostelrie at Goodrich much preferred!

Visited the Saracens Head whilst in Symonds Yat. The service was friendly and professional, the food exquisite. The highlight of our stay was the homemade pie of the day. Pastry was delicious and the pie was full of filling. Would recommend to all and shall definitely be back.

My boyfriend and I ate here whilst staying at the pub itself for the night and wow...just wow, the food was absolutely beautiful. Or as he said mid-meal "do you think we can take the chef home with us?" He had the pie of the day (chicken, smoked bacon and mushroom) and I had the broccoli, feta and pepper cheesecake... More

Beautiful surroundings, sadly not great food. Very overpriced for very basic food, wasn't expecting much more than good pub food but sadly wasn't even good, two sausages on a bit of lumpy mash for £12 and very expensive wine, very disappointing

We had a great dinner there. Everyone really enjoyed their meal and the food was served promptly. The staff were friendly and helpful. We recommend The Saracens Head as a lovely place to go to.

Fantastic food- loved the sea-food platter! Beautiful location- right on the River Wye. The selection of ales and cider was great, as was the service! Definitely worth a visit!

Amazing steak sandwiches and a great location next to the chain ferry and allow dogs. Can get a bit busy in peak season.
