Perfect for our celebration!
Had a great wedding reception here, our private room was nicely decorated and perfect for us to celebrate! Michelle was very helpful when organising our event and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We just had a small gathering and it was perfect for that.Sent on 08/06/2021

Fantastic Wedding Venue
We had our Wedding at the Saracen's Head on Saturday and we highly recommend this venue. Julie was fantastic and took all the stress and worry out of the day completely. From day one she gave us confidence that she was there to help, advise, answer questions and nothing was too much trouble. Julie wanted to make our wedding day perfect to us and it was! Value for money and very personal service. The staff were fantastic and the food was lovely. The hotel rooms were spacious and comfortable. We had an amazing wedding day that ran smoothly from start to finish. Thank you Julie!Sent on 24/07/2019
