Have not stayed here but often eat in the restaurant when we are up that way and the food and service are very good. Staff are helpful and friendly. Dogs allowed in certain areas.

Stopped off here whilst driving around Snowdonia, I ordered a lamb roast and it was absolutely beautiful. Really would recommend stopping off for the roast dinner.

We were delighted on entering - welcoming log fire and lovely decor. The staff were very friendly and made a fuss of our dog (with biscuits 😊) However we were so disappointed that the menu didn't match the venue. The only vegetarian option was a couscous and feta salad- which consisted of a 'dollop' of rehydrated packet couscous with a... More

So. Working road trip for two days. Modern decor. Clean. Log fire. Empty January Welsh Mountain village. Friendly engaging staff. Lamb call with root veg, Welsh IPA and Penderyn whisky. Exactly hit the spot on misty long damp day. Many thanks.

During Christmas week our family of 9 adults and 4 children used the Saracens head a couple of times. The food was great quality and the service was excellent. The staff could not have been more helpful. Some of our family stayed here with their dog and could not fault it. I would recommend the Saracens to anyone. It's not... More

While recently staying in Beddgelert we chose the Saracens Head for our evening meal. Although the restaurant was not open when we arrived were asked to take a seat and we ordered drinks to wait. We had to wait a while before the drinks arrived plus the menus for us to make our choices. All the food was good, well... More

I booked a two night break at The Saracen's Head for my wife's birthday, and earned a huge amount of brownie points! We ate in the restaurant on the first evening and had an extremely pleasant meal, complimented by fantastic service. It should be noted that ALL the staff at the Saracen's were friendly, helpful, and made our short break... More
