We ate here after having a hike along the river. The views are spectacular and the food was awesome. My uncle had the club sandwich which was the best I have ever tasted. Traditional-Huge bowl of "chips" and we enjoyed a drink while soaking up the sun. All of the meals being delivered around us looked fantastic. Great service, great...

From the moment I entered the Inn I was so happy with the way I was treated. All of the staff were exceptionally polite and made sure that I had everything I needed. The food was of a very high standard and not only that there was plenty of it I don't think anyone would leave feeling hungry, The Inn...

...I have to say I loved the responses the PR of the hotel gave to those dissenting voices who reviewed the hotel/pub disparagingly, and whilst waiting for food at lunch listened to some of the curt responses given to customers, so knew what to expect. The bottom line is the location is outstanding and therefore the quantity of custom sometimes...

My friend had raved about her stay at the Sarecens Head Inn so thought we would give it a go and so glad we did. What a hidden treasure this rustic pub is, we could not fault it. We were allocated room 3 which was beautifully clean, well decorated, comfortable and with a picturesque view overlooking the river. I also...

This was our fourth or fifth visit to the Saracens Head and we are never disappointed. The location is beautiful, atmosphere relaxed and friendly and refreshingly unstuffy, and food delicious. Staff are friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

I stayed one night on a business trip and from the moment I stepped into the Saracens Head I was made to feel welcome and at home. The bar area looks out onto the river with a large outside terrace to admire the views. My room was spacious, very clean and modern with a large bathroom. There was excellent wi-fi...

Stayed her with my twin brother and our partners, to celebrate our birthday. We used to live in the area but I hadn't been back for a few years and had forgotten what an amazingly beautiful setting the Saracens Head is in. Fantastic welcome, the staff were all friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome....

You should not miss eating at this place. The food is amazing. Please sit by the river side and not inside the restaurant. They have set up a few tables by the river and that is where you must sit; albeit the food gets cold faster - but it's an experience one cannot just miss. The roast beef, served with...

Beautiful setting with a lovely building serving excellent good and real ale. After eating lunch (a significant serving) ended up going back for dinner the same day and wasn't disappointed. Good value for money but parking not very good in the village.

Took a pitsop after our trek down from Symonds Yat rock and stopped in for lunch- the best decision! Hearty portions, presented well and very tasty. Lovely riverside location, friendly atmosphere and staff are very approachable.
