Lovely location and great to be sat around a circular table with 8 friends and not near anyone else so didn't feel we had to whisper! Food was average but service was poor and waitress had a very casual attitude. The sauces were ordered with the steaks but then we found out they didn't have any Dianne sauce! Why??? Packet... More

I visited this pub for lunch with a friend. It is in a nice location and would probably be nice just for a drink after a walk along the canal. I ordered the seafood platter which was on the pricey side so I had high expectations of the dish. It was a little disappointing with only a tiny amount of... More

This pub restaurant has been beautifully refurbished. It's right next to the canal where one can sit and watch the ducks and narrow boats go by. Sitting outside in the summer will be lovely. The restaurant was packed when I visited but the service was still spot on. The menu was varied and the prices okay but the Sunday roast... More

On Friday 13th January 2017, our family offered to look after our two children whilst we had a night out together. It is the first time in years that we have had an evening and our house completely to ourselves. My wife suggested that we have a meal at the Saracens Head earlier in the week, so I rang and...

We've just celebrated my daughters 30th birthday on New Year's Eve and had a last minute booking for 13 people in the afternoon. The staff were excellent, always there when needed but without being pushy. The menu was varied using lots of fresh produce and everyone was happy with their choices. So much so that it has become a new... More

We paid a quick visit to here as it is the sister pub to our local, The Boathouse in Appley Bridge. We were very impressed- the pub/restaurant is large, modern, clean and in a superb location. Right on the canal it would be great on a warm day. We will definitely return to sample the food.
