The Saracens Head Inn has stood for centuries in its spectacular position on the east bank of the River Wye where the river flows into a steep wooded gorge, on the edge of the Forest of Dean.

After a lovely walk by the river, enjoyed a fantastic sharing platter for lunch sat in the sun. There was plenty to eat for both of us, and very tasty it was too. Service was quick and reasonably priced.

Had a warm welcome, our room looked over the river. We ate two nights in the restaurant where the food was freshly prepared, breakfast was amazing, I had never seen so many fresh fruits and the full English breakfast, was wonderful.

This pub has the perfect views of the river, we came here twice whilst staying a few doors down. Food, service, staff all very friendly/good. The menu isn't extensive and a little pricey. Quality and quantity is good, though I suspect you're paying in part for location.

"Choose a Room over looking the river"
"Rooms at the back are quieter with wooded views, rooms at the front have lovely river views"
"Room 3 would be my choice again with a view over the river."
"Riverside rooms have the best views, but rooms at the back can be quieter, as front rooms overlook the riverside terrace."
