Friendly local pub located at the heart of this busy market town. Established for over 150 years, this traditional pub retains its original layout with a busy saloon bar room and a comfortable snug where food is served daily. There is also a large beer garden which proves to be a real suntrap and very popular on lazy summer evenings when barbeques and live music are a regular attraction. Open 10 am till midnight every day. Live sport shown on three screens including the beer garden. Darts, pool table and euchre played. Juke box and free wifi available.

The Saracens Head is a lovely friendly, family run pub that makes everyone welcome and serve the best Sunday lunch I have ever had in Newton Abbot. Reasonably priced and great value for money. Book early to avoid disappointment.

A pub, pleasant surroundings, a pub with a landlord and beer engines and nice wood about the place ... a pub.

Called in for a drink with 2 friends, it was getting late but karaoke was going on so thought we would give the pub a try. Went into the lounge where we were served, but within no time asked to move "to the other side"...More

Popped in for a quick pint; quite a busy place. The food looked very cheap but drinks prices were around average. £6.50 for two pints. The drinks were served decently. Service was polite. There is a pool table but it's quite cramped. Overall a standard...More
