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

However, the... 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

We went to this restaurant due to Tripadvisers recommendation and was pleased we did, the food was of high quality and the service was first rate. The Scottish lady put me right about the local ales and she was right, the local ale,forget the name something like Betty's buttocks, was worthy of her recommendation.A good birthday treat.

Brilliant varied choices on the menu. Very generous portion sizes. Cooked to perfection. 2 dinning rooms to choose from or just relax in the bar.

We took our visitors here for a meal and weren't disappointed. The hotel itself is in a beautiful spot by the river, and the staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was superb and we would definitely go there again. I would recommend booking a table if you want to eat in the restaurant.

Went as a group of five. We had reserved a table which I think was a good idea as the place was packed even at nearly 2pm on a Saturday afternoon and plenty of people were still coming in after us. We had a fish sharing platter to start which even for five of us was plenty to give all... More

We stayed for two nights nights this spring in Room 11 - Lower Boathouse - and were very impressed by the Saracen's Head at Symonds Yat. It is situated almost at the end of a no-through road with only a few properties beyond it so no traffic racing past the door. Obviously Symonds Yat itself does get very busy in... More

Down near the river with decking to eat outside or have a drink before meal. Didn't manage to eat inside as was booked out on Saturday night, so worth reserving a table
