“A fab location for a celebration .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

The ideal location for a Sunday lunch. Great choice On menu. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and good food. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. It was a beautiful day and they were very busy but the team were well prepared and made us feel very welcome and relaxed.

“Simply wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

My husband and I eat here quite regularly and each time we enjoy it more than the previous visit. The menus are very inventive using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.
We have never had a poor meal here, always served by welcoming waitress's or waiters.
Definitely a restaurant to visit, the interior decor is beautiful also.
Well done to the staff of Saracens Head you have certainly 'pulled it off' here, it is in our opinion a huge success.

“Beautifully furnished restaurant with superb food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We had visited this pub/restaurant a while ago but it has been refurbished since then. What a fabulous job they have done, the furnishings are delightful. The staff were extemely attentive and pleasant. The food was excellent, I had fish & chips and my husband had the piri chicken. We both really enjoyed our meals and will certainly be going back again!

“Wonderful family evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Five booked for eraly dinner on the Sunday evening, we were greeted and shown to the bar area as our table had just freed up, the wonderful barman even found honey to make a hot drink for my niece who was feeling unwell, well done the meal did not dissapoint starters lovely main meal very good dessert great wine list vey good and inexpensive,Servers were attentove but not pushy
worked out at approx 31.00 british pounds per head a little pricey for a roast dinner it was 11.95 per head which in my mind could well be 8.99 bp at most, that said an overall good experience and we will visit again
