We stopped off for a meal on our way back north. We all had the Sunday roast. The meat (lamb shank) was delicious and beans, cauliflower were fine. Unfortunately, the rest of it was virtually inedible. The Yorkshire was too tough to cut, the parsnips were dry and as hard as bricks, the mashed potato had a thick tough skin... More

Made an impromptu visit here on Saturday (16/07/2016) and had no problem getting a table. We arrived at about 6.15. Our waitress was very friendly, chatty and helpful. The sharing platter starter was very well prepared, very tasty, For our mains we had the Fish and Chips and the Sea Bass and Scallop risotto. Both again were very well prepared... More

I cannot express how hard the staff worked to make my daughters wedding day perfect. From the planning with Julie, who was a exceptionally professional, to Jamie and his team, I cannot fault a thing. My daughter had her ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening disco/Buffett at the saracens head. Good was fantastic, staff were fantastic and venue is very flexible.... More

Pre booked table as there was a lot of us. Even pre chose menu to speed things up and help the staff. Garlic mushrooms were not available even though ordered in plenty of time to prepare some. Risotto was very dry and stodgy. More like rice pudding. Very limp salad used with many dishes. Table service very slow. All looked... More

Having reviewed "The Saracens Head Hotel" as "inflexible". I can report that Steven L, the Guest Relations Manager at the Saracen's Head Hotel Restaurant has responded. I had a meeting with the Assistant Manager who has offered a complimentary meal as an apology for the inflexibility of the Chef, Many thanks and I am sure that our views of the... More

We went to 4 different locations for a late lunch just after 2.30pm and Saracens were only one doing food. Sandwich was nice no jacket potato available. I have eaten dinner here to and it's lovely and reasonably priced. Nice location in Towcester with big car park at the rear

Visited the Saracens head hotel for a family Sunday Lunch. I had the Lamb shank with all the trimmings and it was excellent. The other members of my party all had different meals and were all pleased. The price was good and the service was fine.

Decided to give the restaurant another try after a bad experience two years ago when the food was dreadful and the waitress plain rude. Arrived for a late Sunday lunch and the restaurant was quiet. Given a good table by a very welcoming waitress who served us drinks within a few minutes and took our order. The food arrived after... More
