About The Saracens Head
Set in the historic village of Shirley just outside Ashbourne, pub favourites and restaurant style dishes, cooked by award winning Chef, Robin Hunter.
A wonderful evening, good food, good service and good company.
Food epic as always, would have loved more courses but you can’t hang around with a wriggly toddler- he enjoyed himself! So nice to be out at the Saracens as a family. Thank you so much!
Superb everytime. Terry and Robin (and staff) work so hard, the Saracens best gastro pub in the Country. Brilliant food, great service, wonderful pub and beautiful village. 11/10.
Excellent meal, everything was cooked to perfection
a lovely setting, great atmosphere and extremely friendly and efficient staff serving well cooked and delicious food. We will certainly return
Fabulous as always. Great service. Thanks, the Roworth’s x
Fourth time now, and it doesn't disappoint on a repeat visit. Exceptional food and service. See you after lockdown!!!
Best meal we’ve had in a long time. Food very fresh and delicious. Both the crab starter and fresh Sea Bass were amazing! Service was also excellent and everywhere was pristine with tables cleaned immediately a table becomes vacant. Look forward to visiting in the future with our family
Great food and service. Looking forward to a visit again post lockdown. And definitely a few trips to the church lane deli too!
My daughter and I had a lovely lunch Thank you as always x
Gorgeous meal. Lovely attentive staff. Good social distancing too. Well done team‼️
Yet again another fantastic meal at the Saracens. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone who loves great food, fantastic service and a lovely relaxing atmosphere.
Outstanding as always. Excellent service. Excellent food.
Perfect every time, never disappointed every time we dine here. Takeaways are also good during lockdown!
Absolutely beautiful as usual!! Have been disappointed when out for meals since the first lockdown but you’re place hasn’t In any way lost anything it’s all still there! So pleased we managed to get a table! Worth every penny
Lovely food again with a great choice. Social distancing is very good. All in all a lovely lunch
Together with family and /or friends, The Saracen's Head is the first port of call for a special dining occasion.It is a wonderful restaurant and in these troubled times, I salute all involved from chef to cleaners who make this a unique place. Please continue the good work!
As always, a beautiful meal, in lovely surroundings with very pleasant, efficient and helpful staff. Lovely choices on the menu. Excellent all round experience.
Perfect as always. Thank you very much Robin and your team. Guess it may be some weeks before we see you again when we go back into lockdown. Take care and stay safe. Can’t wait to see you all again.
Always outstanding. Excellent .
Lovely meal, everything excellent. We felt very safe too.
Loved the new decor and the outside covered area.
Possibly more lighting now necessary in the room by the bar. The tent arrangement at the front of the pub has cut down the amount of light entering the room, which meant we ate our meal in some gloom. However, as usual, the food was delicious, the portion size astounding and the service very friendly. We will be back.
Lovely food as always, great service, well organised within the current COVID restrictions.
Beautiful food and lovely service. Thank you
