Stayed at Saracens for one night and loved it. Cosy pub and a larger than life owner. Food was great and portions very generous. Room was clean and got blown away by a wonderful shower. Will be going back soon. John Chesney Franks

Love this place. Traditional English pub with fantastic food, great rooms, excellent service, and a landlord who knows how to look after his customers. Strongly recommended for anyone who wants first class service.

I took my mother and family to the Saracen's Head for lunch just before Christmas. We received a really warm welcome when we arrived; everyone was very friendly and attentive. The Saracen's Head offers really good pub grub. I had the fish pie; which was delicious, although having seen the huge platter of gammon, egg and chips I almost wish I had ordered that instead! The portion sizes are really generous and the food was very tasty.

The only minor downside is that the pub was very noisy (as a lot of pubs are) so it wasn't concussive to a quiet lunch. I hadn't been there before so I didn't know what it was like. Having said that, we really enjoyed our lunch and I would definitely go there again.

Stayed one night and 11 of us had a meal. The staff could not have been more helpful prior to our visit and this was the same when we arrived. Nothing was to much trouble and they were very accommodating for our daughter too. I am fussy but would recommend and we will return. James is one of the nicest, most helpful people.

Stayed for 2 nights at this delightful Inn whilst on a business trip in Buckinghamshire. Is in a great location in Amersham old town. Received a warm welcome on arrival by the landlord and staff. Stayed in one of the rooms in the courtyard which was extremely stylish and comfortable with a great power shower. Breakfast was superb. I ate in the pub on both evenings and was very impressed with the menu and quality of the food. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I will definitely be returning on future business trips. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

The service here was great but at £95 for a night we'd have expected much more from the room. We were visiting friends and it was fine overnight, but we would not recommend this if you want a mini-break.

The pub was in ok nick but it was essentially a random pub with a few rooms added on. It's certainly not a gastropub or boutique hotel! our room was directly above the pub and you had to walk behind the bar to access it. It was noisy until the early hours (around 1am) and again from quite early in the morning. You could also hear noise from other rooms. The room itself had a lovely 4 poster bed but otherwise was in average condition and the shower seemed a bit old.

The breakfast was nice and the owners friendly.

All in all it seemed overpriced at £95 but it's fine if you need to stay in the area.

We had a warm welcome from the landlord who showed us to our room without any fuss.
our room had old oak beams, great to have a traditional feel as so many places are modernised.
Great coaching, great breakfast. Will stay again.

Room Tip: We had a room in which I think are converted stables.
