We went to 4 different locations for a late lunch just after 2.30pm and Saracens were only one doing food. Sandwich was nice no jacket potato available. I have eaten dinner here to and it's lovely and reasonably priced. Nice location in Towcester with big car park at the rear

Visited the Saracens head hotel for a family Sunday Lunch. I had the Lamb shank with all the trimmings and it was excellent. The other members of my party all had different meals and were all pleased. The price was good and the service was fine.

Decided to give the restaurant another try after a bad experience two years ago when the food was dreadful and the waitress plain rude. Arrived for a late Sunday lunch and the restaurant was quiet. Given a good table by a very welcoming waitress who served us drinks within a few minutes and took our order. The food arrived after...

I booked a table for our 46th wedding anniversary and we were both very pleased with the standard of food and the service we were given. It made for a very nice evening and rounded off a lovely day.No surprise though because we have been before and always enjoyed it.

We held our wedding at the hotel, and all the staff made it a truly wonderful day. We wanted a relaxed atmosphere and this was achieved effortlessly.

My wife and I stayed for one night with dinner and breakfast. The hotel is a lovely old building with masses of character, be it in the bar, restaurant or rooms.
