Great food at lunchtime and in the evening, we ate there throughout our trip. Prices are quite expensive, so was surprised when going in for an evening meal at 5.30pm on our last night, Saturday, that every table in the dining room and the bar area itself was reserved! There literally was nowhere to sit! We excepted this but it...

We visited the Saracens head twice during the past week as a party of 8 adults, the first time for dinner and the second for lunch. The food was excellent although they seemed to struggle catering for vegetarians (3 of our group) with a number of items being off the menu. A large of red on the house definitely helped....

I visited the Saracens Head Inn for Sunday lunch with friends. The food was lovely, good portion sizes and arrived quickly. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The Inn is situated by the river, and we had lovely views from our table. Perfect spot to go for a walk after eating. I would definitely visit again.

The pub is situated on the bank of the River Wye with nice views from the terrace. Good range of local beers. Very nice sandwiches and other lunchtime food. Excellent chips. A good place to stop off when walking in the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean area.

Part of my Christmas present from my husband was a nights dinner, bed and breakfast at the Saracens on the 22nd December. We stayed in room 12, the boathouse, with views over my favourite river. Dinner was lush, crab risotto followed by a delicious medium rare steak with hand cut home made chunky chips. Woke up in the morning to...

Had lunch here as a large group. The food and service was excellent considering the large table our food all came out at once and they accommodated for 2 small children also. Lovely river side pub with outside and indoor seating. Lovely cosy atmosphere.

We have been going on holiday to the Forest of Dean for about fifteen years on and off and we always make a point of visiting Symonds Yat. We always eat at The Saracens Head, the setting is lovely and the food has always been good, it can get very busy during the summer months but they have a good...
