Saracens Head


 Coronavirus Update - 29 March 2021.


Now that the country has successfully started to move out of lockdown and that vaccinations have already arrived in the arms of millions of people in the UK , we can now believe that we really will be able to reopen in April.


We will be ready to open again to everyone for courtyard and or marquee dining from Friday 16 April. Initially for lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday and Sunday lunch.  Once the weather starts to pick up we hope to extend this earlier in the week.  As from Wednesday 19 May we will be able to open the restaurant in the main building.  The restaurant will remain at reduced capacity so as to ensure that everybody is able to remain socially distanced, but tables will be able to have 2 households on them or up to a maximum of 6 people from up to 6 households.


Please give us a call or drop us an email to make a booking.


We are able to accept room bookings for reservation from Monday 17 May.  This can be done by pressing the Book Now button on the menu.


All the best and we're looking forward to seeing you all again soon.



Tim, Janie, Mark, Sam, Robbie and all the team at the Saracens.

The Saracen’s Head is a Georgian Inn nestled in the heart of the North Norfolk countryside that prides itself on being true to the spirit of its 200-year history, the unique county that surrounds it and its owners, Tim and Janie Elwes, who have made it their vocation to provide a place to eat, drink and stay that is at once timeless, absolutely modern and thoroughly welcoming.


The Saracen’s Head is a hard place to find, hidden away in the lanes of the wild countryside. The middle of nowhere, it would seem to be. But looking a little closer you will find that it is in the centre of everywhere!


North Norfolk has so much to offer and is attractive to people from so many different walks of life. Whether you are looking for somewhere to base yourself whilst discovering this part of East Anglia or just want to play golf at several courses without moving hotel each day then we could well be the ideal choice for you. We’re surrounded by Country Mansions and National Trust properties, there are beaches of every description within 35 minutes drive and when it comes to bird watching then you are spoilt for choice. All these and many more things can be enjoyed whilst you are in Norfolk, read more about our surroundings on the Around page.


Where we come into our own is to provide that wonderfully relaxed home from home where you can return after your day and unwind with a drink and enjoy a delicious meal prepared by our chef, using the best local produce. Definitely, something to look forward to.


Well, here in the middle of nowhere you are in the centre of everywhere, so do read on and discover more about the Saracens and about North Norfolk.
