A party of 12 of us camping in the local area for a weekend went to Saracens Head for Diner. Absolutely beautiful food and friendly service. Certainly not cheap but I am a great believer in getting what you pay for and the food here was worth every penny. Pub is full of local charm. Dogs and muddy boots were... More

The food was really good, but surprised there was no chicken on the menu which was a shame and caused some of us to struggle choosing our evening meal.

We went for an hour walk, starting a little outside of Monmouth along the Peregrines Path, before finishing here in Symons Yat. This is a beautiful country pub (with rooms) overlooking the River Wye. We stayed for a quick drink and a few bags of of crisps from their wide and varied selection. Prices appeared to be very reasonable. We... More

We popped in at lunch time after a long walk. Limited menu but what's in it is awesome. The burgers are huge and really tasty. We sat outside over looking the river with the dogs. Not sure if dogs are allowed inside however it's not a problem as plenty of seats available outside.

Visited Saracens Head one evening for a pre-booked meal (necessary due to popularity). We were a party of 5 adults and were not disappointed. From the moment we sat down to when we left it was very good. The starters, and mains were delicious with good quality wine too. The only small criticism would be that the ambience in the... More

The atmosphere in the pub and restaurant is friendly, warm and cosy. Young staff delivering great customer service with a smile The food is on the "fussy" side but very imaginative and full of taste. I thoroughly enjoyed my lamb, my husband's pie of the day was pronounced delicious It's on the pricey side but overall good value

Use the ferry, cross the Wye, walk to Biblins Bridge and return to The Saracens Head. Book to avoid disappointment. Car park free after 6. Plenty of steep challenging walks or flat riverside with good paths. Food good pub food. Service good as long as you abide by the rules, don't order drinks from the food bar! Board games to... More

If you fancy a drive (slow because of narrow lanes and rural location) out to a quite spot on the river where you can get great food, with friendly service and views along the river then don't go anywhere else but here. It has high ratings for a reason - it's worth it. Some tips, get your table, send one... More
