Saracens Head


***** Due to a burst water pipe in the attic of the Saracens during the recent bad weather we have suffered a large flood that has caused a huge amount of damage to our bedrooms, stairways, halls, bar and restaurant.  


We are are now in the midst of drying out the building, which Is going to take a few weeks longer.  When the Saracens is dry it will be a case of letting the builders in and setting about replacing the damaged ceilings and walls. Our plan is to get the bar and parlour into operation first followed by the rooms.


I cannot not tell you how frustrating this all is, but we will be back up and running as soon as is possible!


As we know more, we will keep you informed.  If you have any enquiries, please email or call us and we will get back to you as soon as possible. ***** updated 7/4/2018
