Great little pub

Roaring fire, very friendly bar staff, comfy seating, a few beers on draft. Not far off the high street.

The new management team and supporting staff at the Saracen's Head in Alfred Square, Deal, are making a fantastic effort to make this the best pub ever. If you want a friendly, welcoming atmosphere - go there. If you want fresh, superbly cooked food - go there. If you want a pub that involves itself in the local community and... More

The Saracen's Head might be a bit off the main road but it is definitely worth the walk!! The owners are both very friendly and so are the other customers. The food is well prepared and very reasonably priced - the cheese board is especially delicious and boasts an excellent selection of local cheeses. I also went to one of... More

Visited following the new management's take over - great beer (with a happy 1/2 hr!) and a cheese board that is stunning and very reasonably priced. The addition of home cooked food also looked like a winner in the making, the new management deserve to succeed, this pub is well worth the walk from town to get to.

We had heard on the grapevine that the new management had transformed this pub so popped in for a quick drink last night. Lovely warm welcome by the management and friendly locals as we thawed out in front of a traditional wood burning stove. Very good red wine and convivial conversation made it easy to plan our next visit. We... More

The new licensees, Richard and Opal, have really changed the atmosphere of the Saracen's Head, and it is well worth a visit now. Aside from removing the billiards table and pulling up the carpet to reveal the lovely wood floor, the entire ambiance is just more welcoming. And it's not just because of the crackling fireplace that keeps the bar... More
