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.
Would like to see a greater range of craft beers.

Simply the best.
Warm welcome, tastefully decorated, everything clean and tidy. Brilliant well cooked and presented food so price no problem when you eat and enjoy. will be back.
Rib eye steak was absolutely delicious. Always great service.
This was not our first visit and nor will it be our last!
Another enjoyable meal.
I think the pub is great and the food is fantastic. As a real ale drinker I would have preferred something more varied compared to Speckled Hen, Green King IPA and St Euston?? (which I had and felt was very like Green King IPA)
Nice choice on menu, good portions and served very hot, excellent!
Our first visit and we were very impressed. Very attentive service, tasty food and good sized portions. If we were local we'd be there every week! Will definitely find another reason to be in the area.
Another excellent meal in this wonderful pub. We have been visiting fort many ears and have always found the menu varied and sumptuous. The food is always hot and well presented and waiting time is not at all long, even in busy periods. We have recommended you to many friends and will continue to visit ourselves.
Everything about The Saracens Head is just epic! Nothing else needs to be said.
Excellent honest food in a fantastic location with superb service. A delight.
Great food, great staff and service
Excellent in every respect and a very efficient pre-booking system for a party of 18 coming for lunch. Thank you.
The meal was delicious. Back in January for husband’s birthday lunch - weather permitting. Favourite restaurant.
Thank you. Lovely meal. Great service.
Excellent warm welcome, lovely pub with the most fantastic food. Your staff are a credit to you and your business.
This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered. The quality was wonderful and the portions generous. Will definitely recommend and return.
The second time we have been here! Lovely atmosphere and very considerate staff - really relaxed lunch with wonderful home cooked food. Looking forward to the next time.
We loved it all. However, it was very difficult to read the menu on the wall, and we noticed others were struggling also. Perhaps it was maybe slightly off putting for the people who had to sit next to wall menu? You have a lovely varied and wide menu, its a pity it is difficult to read the menu. We will be coming back regularly, a first rate venue. Many thanks. Guy
