We visited Symonds Yat on a lovely April day, and chose the Saracens Head thinking it would be a great meal in a fantastic location. We were right about the location, but the food was nothing special, and very overpriced! £7.50 for a poached egg and five pieces of asparagus is way over the top. That set the tone for... More

Had the most amazing lunch here whilst visiting with friends and our children. Service was good, staff very friendly and smartly presented, and they even ran the old fashioned boat to take you across the river! As a kayaker, I will be frequenting this pub more often to sample the fantastic menu and relax by the river after a paddle.... More

The food was of exceptionally good quality. The steak and blue cheese panini (a grilled ciabatta, in fact) was generously filled and cooked to perfection, and the chips were some of the best I've ever tasted - soft and fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside. Wonderful. The bad: the service was very slow, even though it was... More

A lovely setting and is ideal if you are staying there as all you need is there, have been twice and have booked another visit. The food is very good and excellent value.

Every time I visit the area on business I make a point of eating at The Saracens. This time I came with my family for Sunday lunch, once again blown away at how they manage to consistently exceed expectations. Shared a baked camembert to start, delicious and well presented. The roast Beef was just perfect as was the roast pots... More

Second time I have been here this week. One on business which was great, really fantastic food and good company. Now with 3 little girls. I especially like the Eaton Mess and walking out next to the river when it is dark listening to the owls.

Had a really good meal here a couple of weekends ago. Was difficult to decide what to have as there were so many tempting things on the menu, but had the duck and it was cooked to perfection. Can't remember what my husband had, but he loved it! Make sure you book beforehand. Excellent, friendly service too.

The Saracens Head Inn is in a beautiful country setting, nestled by the side of the River Wye. We were most pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, we had two courses both of which were excellent and had very good service. We ate in the bar area.
