This is a really good resturant. The food is fresh and locally sourced. The lobster in the Thermidor was fresh and the dish tasted of lobster(really quite unusual for this dish!). The sea bream was served with a lobster bisque which was perfectly made. Breakfast was superb, kippers, eggs, bacon , sausage etc, and with really good coffee. Bedrooms are...

Came for a getaway with my family, we had a great stay in the family room, beds were comfortable and it was very roomy, we loved the feel of the old traditional building and the food was an 11/10. As I am a fussy eater, they even accommodated for me and my sister and made us a meal that wasn't...

I've read reviews before where a lot of credit is given to the 'warm host' this has always scared me. Although I expect good service, I'm afraid when I hear that phrase that there will be an over enthusiastic, in your face, too happy to please host waiting for me on arrival. Turns out I was wrong. My stay at...

Excellent evening. Service was extremely good, the menu was extensive and well balanced. Cooking was very good, with consistently excellent quality food firing out of the kitchen. Speed of delivery of food was just right, from order to table about 10 mins. With a full restaurant not easy to achieve. Probably best in area - I've known this establishment, since...

Enjoyed an excellent wedding anniversary dinner at this delightful country restaurant. Everything was cooked and presented beautifully, the slow roast shoulder of lamb with 'Italian sauce' in particular. It's not the first time we've visited the Saracen's Head and it certainly won't be the last!

We had a lovely a lovely room. The ensuite was a good size with a bath and a shower. The bed covers and quilt were a good quality, the only downside was that we both found the mattress a little hard. The upside was that we could have our dog with us throughout our stay which was wonderful. Friendly Owners!

Saturday summer's evening, really good to sit outside for a pre-dinner drink. Staff were very helpful.Lovely location, quirky building, very good food. However nothing about it made me think "wow that was great, must visit again". That said, would happily recommend it. I had pork belly which was nice, but to be honest you can't beat pork belly from Prezzo...

What on earth has happened? We last came here a year ago and had a delightful lunch. I'm not making comparison to the old Robert Dawson-Smith days but, quite frankly, our dinner last night was disappointing and rather desultory. As were the manners of our host. £22 for a steak that had been neither tenderised nor seasoned. £16.50 X 2...

This "Restaurant with Rooms" is located in the depths of the beautiful Norfolk countryside. We couldn't fault it. There is an excellent choice of food to suit all tastes. All perfectly  cooked with a delicate touch and a focus on high quality locally sourced food. We had  Pigeon and Black Pudding with Apple Salad and  Brancaster Smoked Salmon with Prawns...
