The location is beautiful. The pub was large with plenty of seating and real fires which made for very cosy eating if you got there early enough to get a table by one of the fires. The food was absolutely delicious and they were very good portions, definitely worth the money. Not your bog standard pub grub. Not sure how accessible it is during the summer months and it is down an almost single track road but definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. We went two nights in a row.

A most enjoyable lunch watching the ducks go past. The log fire keeps the whole bar warm.
The Welsh burger was superb, as was the steak sandwich. The Devonshire crab and scallops a little disappointing as the crab was overwhelmed by the scallops.
The range of real ales is impressive and having tasted Sharp's Doom Bar, Otley 01 and Butty Bach (not on the same day I hasten to add).
Definitely worth a return trip.

Called up at 8:45pm on Sunday and ordered food over the phone after we'd heard the menu and arranged to be picked up by hand ferry..
The hand ferry captain told us he was just informed by his superior that the river was too high to run the ferry after unseasonal snowfall but that he would drive round to pick us up! So 7 minutes later he arrived and took us to a beautiful old English pub. Needless to say the service was incredible and staff very friendly. I had locally reared Beef steak (3 big slices) and the biggest yorkshire pud I've ever seen along with gravy and a side bowl full of all the trimmings. Whilst the Wife enjoyed Chicken and Dauphinoise potatoes which she agreed were better than her own cooking. We didn't finish everything as the portions were huge so everything leftover was kindly wrapped up for a delicous lunch the next day. What a pub!

Whilst away for the weekend we had a meal at The Saracens Head Inn.
Lovely old pub and nice atmosphere.
It was a Saturday night and was pretty busy though they found us a table even though we hadntj booked. Staff were extremely friendly.
Fairly upmarket food/pretty for a pub I thought. My husband had a 10oz steak which he said was delicious. I had a starter for my main course, scallop and crab gratin, not bad but wouldnt choose it again.
