If you don't eat meat, the menu is pretty limited and actually the roasts looked very fatty with limited vegetables. I really wished that the tapas menu had been available.

Good food, company, beer and weather but had to drive. After confirming the Saracen's Head was dog friendly we descended on the pub for lunch. Hot weather 'forced' us to sit outside and look at the countryside and horses and other such refinements you don't...More

Response from HannahsTA | Reviewed this property |
I connected to their WiFi successfully when visiting, and it was sufficient for my needs, though these were personal not business. I would say this place is suitable for an informal business meeting.

Situated in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside 2 miles from Althorp House, the ancestral home of Diana, Princess of Wales. A traditional village inn with character and charm. We are a privately owned and run free house with a selection of well kept real ales and lagers plus an extensive wine list. Runners-up in the Northamptonshire Food & Drink Awards 2009. A great place to spend a lunchtime or evening.
