The Saracen’s Head is a friendly pub and restaurant on the bank of the River Wye. In the summer this is a very busy spot as it’s near the campsites and all the Symonds Yat activity centres. This is a lovely place to visit and is a great end point or rest stop on a Wye Valley hike. The Saracen’s Head is also very handy for adventurers who are camping at nearby campsites.
The Saracen’s Head Pub & Restaurant
The pub has a nicely presented inside and a nice outside seating area on a terrace. The menu is diverse, from nice lunchtime bites to more gourmet meals on the main menu. The Saracen’s Head is dog friendly and pets are welcome inside the bar area and the beer garden.
Wye Valley Views
The Pub is in the heart of the Wye Valley AONB and surrounded by woodland. There is a hand ferry to cross the river nearby as well the opportunity to go on a river cruise. The River has some rapids nearby and is popular with watersports enthusiasts.
Walking is the best way to appreciate the stunning scenery of near to the pub and also spot some local wildlife. If you are walking the Wye Valley, this is an excellent place to rest your legs and have a refreshment break.
Symonds Yat Pub Review
I have eaten or stopped at the Saracen’s Head on a variety of occasions. The pub is a wonderful place to enjoy a cider on a hot summer’s day. Meals are of outstanding quality too. However one standout occasion I enjoyed a locally reared ribeye steak that they cooked to perfection.
