It was a cold and frosty Sunday morning ideal for a good walk along the Wye. The Saracens Head Inn is located in Symonds Yat East, near the bottom of the steep climb from Symonds Yat Rock, and right where the traditional rope ferry takes foot passengers across the rive Wye to the west bank. After a walk and before... More

After a long walk from the Forest Holidays cabins in the Forest of Dean, along the Symonds Yat and down to the riverside, The Saracens Head Inn was an absolute TREAT. I had a dry white wine and my boyfriend had a pint of Guinness - both superb! Great value for money also. Views are fantastic and the staff are... More

My husband & I had lunch & an evening meal here on the 10.1.15. It has a great location overlooking the river Wye, with very friendly staff & an excellent service. The food was very good & we got plenty, but was a little over-priced. Very nice place, would definately return!

A great location, with friendly staff who provide excellent service. I just think that at the prices charged, up to £20!for a main course, then the food needs to match the quality you would expect in a city restaurant. I felt that too much effort had been given to presentation rather than the cooking and the flavour. Please can I... More

Stopped here to have a drink at just before midday on a Sunday between Christmas and New Year, the bar area was easy and got served immediately. Unfortunately for us all tables were full or reserved for lunch, thankfully although a very cold day the sun was shinning and we sat outside with the wonderful view of the river Wye.... More

During our stay at the beautiful location of Symonds Yat East (stayed at the Forest View Guest house), we visited the Saracens Head for a meal. Booking was advised so a table was reserved for us The menu was varied and prices ranged from £12.95 to over £20 for a main meal. However, the meals we ordered (Pappardelle and Turkey,... More

We went for a work night out just before Christmas and enjoyed a fantastic meal with fab service. I've eaten here on 3 previous occasions and the standard is always very high. For a pub, the Saracens delivers a restaurant dining experience to better many establishments I've been too. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave good... More

We stopped in for a post-walk drink and chips and were not disappointed. These were some of the best chips we have ever had. I must also mention the wide selection of local beers.

Busy busy places like this that don't have enough staff on, can't get the food out quick enough really irritate me. It's a nice place to eat on a quiet day. Foods of a reasonable standard. 2 young girls struggle to clear tables and serve food. Very disheartened watching them.😔
