One of my favourite places.
We're always impressed by the food, the service and the friendly staff. Well done. (The Deli is good too).
Always outstanding !! Our favourite for lunch or dinner . Staff amazing .
Yet again fabulous food, excellent service and a lovely atmosphere.
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant - we just love the Saracens Head. That had to be one of the best Sunday lunches ever, and exceptionally good value too! Thanks to Robin and his team for providing us with yet another outstanding dining experience.
As always we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch with our friends at the Saracens Head. All of our main courses and deserts were delicious. The service was excellent, and all the staff very pleasant. We will be coming back with different friends in a couple of weeks!
Delightful lunch with friends. Two of us had the Goan fish curry - wonderful! Unfortunately no room for a pud... The service was excellent and professional. We've been coming to The Saracens over a number of years and always have a good meal, it is so consistently good. We also went to the Deli, a real treasure, just wished we lived closer to it.
brilliant staff, friendly and excellent serving skills - including all the little things that a lot lack. food is excellent and choice of drink is great also.
Tasty fresh cooked food, and good value for money. Lovely staff and great atmosphere
Great food and a lovely busy atmosphere but the service didn't suffer
Excellent as always
First time visit to the Saracens Head and will definitely be coming back. Excellent meal and service.
Perfect, as normal. See you again soon. Roger & Sue Ife
Excellent food and service, as always.
Excellent food and service as always, even allowing for the fact it was Mothers day and extremely busy.
