One of the best pubs in the North West. Perfect location on the canal, sat outside, nice cider and chunky chips, not cheap but good value. Absolutely beautiful location and friendly staff.

We ordered piri piri chicken wings to share as a starter which were really good. My hubby ordered the classic burger, which he assured me was really good as were my ribs...the meat just fell off the... More

Great location by the canal. Ideal for a sunny day. Unfortunately, the very poor service really let the place down. Very slow service from the various waitresses who served us & we had to remind them of our order several times. Such a shame, as used to be a lovely place to eat.

Would like to thank the staff at the Saracens Head for an experience I'm not likely to forget 14/5/17 That's the Sunday just gone, After a lovely day out with my family at Martin Mere I specifically chose their establishment as a nice way to top off our day and take my family to what I thought was a family...

Food was good. Very large portions. Top end price wise, but value for money. But...knives are blunt and don't cut anything. Take your own!!!

Having been here numerous times in the past and enjoyed every previous experience, we decided to celebrate our daughter's birthday here. We arrived half an hour early and gave a birthday cake to the waitress to be taken out at the end of the meal. On receiving our meals, on this occasion the roast dinner was extremely disappointing and it... More

Staff are friendly and very helpful. The menu varies dependent on season which is great if you are a frequent dinner. The food served is large in portion size we had the burgers, chicken and quiche all were delicious. Service is attentive and prompt could not be faulted. Mid week is always quiet but you do need to book if... More
