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!

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.

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!

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.
