Locally sourced produce prepared simply and sympathetically in a warm and welcoming building with efficient service. It's not rocket science but is exactly what people want from an establishment like this. Lovely outdoor area on a sunny day and indoors there is not the raucous...More

We chanced on the Saracen's Head having missed another venue and it worked out well for us. The landlady couldn't have been more accommodating and really looked after the children. She brought through colouring books and pens, offered meals not listed for the children which...More

This place has style - and a great chef. We enjoyed his cooking elsewhere before he moved here, and we wish we could get here more often. A beautiful building, with friendly staff. We hope to book in for a night or two sometime. We...More
