This pub restaurant has been beautifully refurbished. It's right next to the canal where one can sit and watch the ducks and narrow boats go by. Sitting outside in the summer will be lovely. The restaurant was packed when I visited but the service was still spot on. The menu was varied and the prices okay but the Sunday roast... More

On Friday 13th January 2017, our family offered to look after our two children whilst we had a night out together. It is the first time in years that we have had an evening and our house completely to ourselves. My wife suggested that we have a meal at the Saracens Head earlier in the week, so I rang and...

We've just celebrated my daughters 30th birthday on New Year's Eve and had a last minute booking for 13 people in the afternoon. The staff were excellent, always there when needed but without being pushy. The menu was varied using lots of fresh produce and everyone was happy with their choices. So much so that it has become a new... More

We paid a quick visit to here as it is the sister pub to our local, The Boathouse in Appley Bridge. We were very impressed- the pub/restaurant is large, modern, clean and in a superb location. Right on the canal it would be great on a warm day. We will definitely return to sample the food.

Couldn't fault the food, but expensive . The staff were not rude, but neither were they welcoming. Decor inside and out was smart, and if you don't mind having to search for someone to pay then it could be OK.

Visited for some late lunch today. Informed only one area of menu available, all sandwiches. Explained I can't eat bread and could they offer extra salad as an alternative to the bread and no chips as all sandwiches come with chips and a dressed herb salad. Told me that I could just basically eat around what I can't eat and... More

I visited this restaurant with my mum and sister for lunch. They have been here a couple of times and raved about it. The restaurant is spacious overlooking the water and friendly staff. The menu is extensive and something to suit all palettes. We opted for Cajun chicken burger which was delicious and so filling. The fish sandwich was huge... More
