Fantastic Wedding
Venue Service

By David Cooper, on 30 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2018

I am a licencee of 30 years and decided to book my wedding day at the Saracens Head Towcester. What amazing service from Julie the wedding organiser and Wayne the deputy manager. Julie surpassed everything I could have wished for. Her attention to detail leading up to the wedding was phenomenal. Value for money I believe was superb. The wedding day went without a hitch with very tight schedules and turnarounds. The staff were fantastic and worked extremely hard and with great efficiency. Food was a hog roast which was superb. And so much food. I hope you can pass on my thoughts to Julie and her team. I have also on trip advisor recommended your venue as a top class wedding venue. That's from an experienced Licencee. 5 Star trip advisor. I would also comment to any potential wedding parties here if they wanted a true reflection of my experience.

Fantastic Summer Wedding
Venue Service

By Nichole Clark, on 30 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

We came across Saracen's Head after looking at another venue. Although Julie was not there on our first visit, we found the staff to be really helpful and polite showing us the rooms and the lay out (even though we had called in unannounced). It was so refreshing after leaving the previous venue. We had several meetings with Julie (at least 4 or 5!) and she was able to address concerns I had (not with the venue but the day itself) and was able to give me some ideas of things I had not thought about. The day itself ran very well, We were able to bring our own decorations and the room was dressed how we wanted it to be. I stayed the night before so was well rested (as you can be!), All my guests commented on how good the food was (we had the beef) and how amazing the day had gone. Of course for me it went too quickly but Julie and her team worked flat out to ensure everything was perfect and checked things with us where appropriate (layout of the room etc). I can't wait to receive the official photos so I can share them with the venue. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the venue to others.

Ten out of Ten
Venue Service

By Jennifer and Stephen Lawrence, on 03 May 2018Date of Wedding - 02 May 2018

So easy to deal with and a big weight off our minds to know we could leave Julie and the team to ensure everything went smoothly, which it did. A friendly, welcoming team and the food was first class and such good value. Our guests were very impressed and we all thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Wedding bliss
Venue Service

By Yvonne Corrigan, on 12 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Mar 2018

I married my partner of 31 years on 5th March 2018 at the Saracens. We looked at other venues as well but was impressed by Julie’s enthusiasm, the price and the whole set up. We went through everything several times with Julie before the big day to make sure it all went off perfect. I had a beautiful complimentary room the previous night fabulous. I was well rested ready for my wedding. They staff really did us proud, the room was stunning how they laid it all out. Nothing was too much trouble. I felt so relaxed as I knew we were in good hands. Julie was there sorting out and got it all spot on. The meal was gorgeous. It was a set menu with about four choices for starters, main and sweet. The day couldn’t have been more perfect. Julie gave me ideas that I never thought about the extra little touches. I would definetly recommend the Saracens Head for your wedding venue, you won’t be disappointed. We have such wonderful memories and photos of the day, I don’t think it would have been as nice elsewhere. Thank you Julie and the team for our special day. It meant so much to us after being together 31 years you gave us what we wanted and more beside. Thank you from Gary and Yvonne Corrigan.

August Bank Holiday Wedding
Venue Service

By Janis and Stephen Hodges, on 12 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2017

We had our wedding reception at The Saracens Head and would recommend it to anyone. From the initial booking and planning meetings with Julie the Wedding co-ordinator to the day itself nothing was too much trouble. Julie is really good at putting you at ease and going that extra mile to make sure that everything you want to make your day perfect for you is possible. My guests all commented on the service they received and how welcome they were made to feel , how good the food was and plenty of it. The evening buffet was the best we have ever had at a wedding reception and impressed everyone. A lot of the family stayed over and the rooms are very comfortable and we enjoyed a lovely breakfast the next day to complete our perfect experience at The Saracens.

Team Brindley Wedding 22nd July 2017
Venue Service

By Laurie Brindley, on 01 May 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Jul 2017

My husband Adam and I were married at the Saracen's head in July 2017. The venue were very helpful and supportive throughout and were happy to accommodate all of our requirements without any hassle. Even when our numbers were fluctuating slightly towards the big day with guests changing plans, they took it all in their stride and made the amendments necessary. We had a lovely ceremony there, the room was perfect, and our drinks and canape reception after went off without a hitch. They looked after us and our guests really well from the moment the bride & groom arrived, until the last guest left. The main thing for us, is that despite the fact that we only wanted a short reception there, and not a full sit down meal or evening do, they were still fully on board with our plans and they still made us feel special. They were really flexible for our requirements and also very reasonably priced - we would recommend them to others!

Perfect Day!
Venue Service

By Kathryn, on 24 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Mar 2017

We had our wedding at the Saracens Head in Towcester on 4th March 2017 and it was everything we had hoped for. Julie had everything under control right from our very first meeting. Everything went as planned on the day. Food was perfect, the Pickwick Suite was lovely and the hotel rooms were clean and comfortable. The executive bedrooms were very stylish. Although the hotel is in a High Street, your photographer will be able to take beautiful shots incorporating some of the stunning architectural features of the hotel. I would definitely recommend the Saracens Head for a wedding.
