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.
