The service it was excellent, thank you staff. I had the Kebab, impressive coming on two hanging skewers, eight pieces of meat with a bowl of salad which at £13.95 i expected better, the lamb let it down more as they where both fatty bits of meat and to finish off the chips where not fried for long enough.

Really looking forward to a great meal because my wife had been earlier in the week and loved it. So we booked for a family meal on Saturday night. Slightly disappointed with the lack of choice and was not impressed with the quality of the food for the price.

A spur of the moment visit. Had been out all day and just wanted somewhere for a bite to eat before heading home. Had seen new signs for this pub/restaurant and decided to try. We have been here before but not for years so it was a nice surprise to see the updated and modern changes. Lovely atmosphere and we... More

Food, staff and beer all absolutely first class and great that the pub is still dog and family friendly. We love this place so much that it's an important part of our annual holiday trip from Scotland to England and we specifically book a Stafford overnight stay just so we can pop in for a family meal. Really liked all... More

I had the fish finger sandwich from the light bite section of the menu. I have had many pub fish finger sandwiches and this was the best. A lovely warm ciabatta roll, side salad and coleslaw and chunky chips. I would definitely have this again!

It's been a while since we used the Saracens, but hearing it was under the ownership of Weston Hall we decided to give it a try. Despite it being very busy the service was good, there is a good choice of menu, and the food was excellent. Well worth a visit.

We obviously called in on a very busy night when the staffing wasn't quite right. We had booked a table but then waited just over an hour before we got our food. Having said that the food was nice. I really liked the menu. The brisket was delicious. I will definitely be going back but perhaps in a month or... More

We popped by for a beer outside on a summers evening the pub as been refreshed with new furniture.. Even though it's been taken over by Weston hall don't think you need to dress up this is still very much a casual country pub! Beer tasted nice good choice we looked at the menu but we had already eaten but... More

Good pub food with a large beer garden I had the pie which was lovely and the service was fast. My girlfriend had the scampi which was average. We will definitely go back when it is refurbished

We popped in for a drink, having planned to eat on our narrowboat, moored 2 minutes away, but we received such a warm welcome by the lovely lady on the bar, that hubby was sent back to the boat to put the chicken breasts back in the freezer so that we could eat there too. The menu is mostly pub... More
