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.
It wasn’t our first visit to Saracen’s Head and definitely not the last one; we thoroughly enjoyed it. Delicious food! Great service! Relaxed and cosy atmosphere!
Cannot be faulted.
Second visit this week. My friend loves coming here, she has the vegetable lasagne every time. And every time she is never disappointed. Thank you.
Consistently delivers. Excellent all round.
Wonderful meal excellent service as always
Never fails to be excellent.
As always we had a lovely meal; service was excellent; food beautifully cooked and presented; delivered to the table hot and accompanied by tasty vegetables. Restaurant was quite busy but there was no delay in serving up what was a lovely meal! Many thanks to the chef and team at the Saracens.
Another excellent meal at a great place.
The best ever steak pie (and I've eaten quite a few!) Delicious quiche.... filling just the right consistency, crisp pastry (no soggy bottoms here) served with sweet potato chips. Previously we have had the best ever fish pie and boeuf bourgingnon.... which was.....the best ever. Wish we lived closer!
Great food again from Robin and the team,best pud food in Derbyshire by far.
Harissa Monkfish starter was magnificent
Great menu.The food was amazing.
Excellent in every respect. Never disappoints.
Excellent food extensive choice of well cooked and presented food lovely wood burning fires a delightful place to visit
Excellent - as ever.
Our favourite restaurant. We are never disappointed. Wonderful food and friendly and professional service. Faultless.
As always simply excellent!! The Saracens never lets us down for a really nice and evening out.
some tables too close to chalk board menu, people gathering around looking at the menu impose on your space,talking and looking at what you are eating while you are enjoying your dining experience.
Excellent ,nothing more to add.
Excellent lunch thank you....perfect service, along with the food and the vibe....we were very impressed. We will see you again in the near future...
we visited for my Gran’s birthday lunch. we came on the recomendation of my mum who also joined us. This is my absolute new favourite and having just moved to Ashbourne could become our “local”! Thank you again!
We invariably leave having had a good meal.
Excellent service and delicious food .Will recommend to friends and will return soon.
