“Great food & location, not so good service”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

We ate out at the Saracens Head on the bank of the River Wye. The location is amazing. The food was tasty and enjoyable, but the service was not good. The staff seemed hassled and stressed. We had items on our bill that we had not consumed, and they had to adjust it. The starter (1 person out of 3 of us had this) was served with the main courses, which they didn't seem to realise until it arrived at the table, then they took the main courses away without asking what we wanted to do. This resulted in a very unhappy & hungry 8 yr old. We had to ask for it to be brought back in.
Food & venue great, service not good. Won't go back in a hurry.

“Eating at teh Saracens head”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Excellent service, because we moved our table for a larger party the owner gave us a drink on the house. Always good food there, we went across on the boat and had a great 3mile circular walk from there

“Lovely setting , lots of activity, food average to good”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

This place is right in the bottom of the Wye valley near a hand propelled ferry to the west side.

It was very busy when we visited as it was a sunny day and there was a lot going on in the river; canoeing etc.

The service is not brilliant one orders from the bar, but the staff are pleasant and friendly. Wine was comparatively inexpensive and there are several quality beers. The food was just about OK but it is really pub food rather than restaurant food

We would go there again for the setting and hope for better food.

rolo25, Public Relations Manager at The Saracens Head Inn Restaurant, responded to this review, 31 March 2012
We thank this reviewer for their review, however, feel we must reply to some points raised.
The Saracens Head Inn is a pub - we aim to serve high quality pub food at lunchtimes, and
more restaurant - style dishes in the evenings. We find this works - as , of course you have to
'play to your audience', and the residents who stay with us overnight appreciate more than
pub food.
Also, as we are a busy pub, we cannot offer every table table service at lunchtimes ( this would be pretty much impossible given the high footfall ). However, all booked tables get table service at lunchtimes, as do all tables in the evening service.
