The Saracens Head Inn offers riverside bed and breakfast accommodation, and award winning food, with a traditional pub feel.
The Inn has stood for centuries in a spectacular position on the east bank of the River Wye, where the river flows into a steep wooded gorge, on the edge of the Forest of Dean, in Symonds Yat East.
We have nine Bed and Breakfast rooms, most of which overlook the glorious River Wye.
Symonds Yat East lies between Ross on Wye and Monmouth and The Wye Valley Walk meanders past our door. This family run Inn is popular with walkers, cyclists, canoeists, fishermen and fans of good food and real ales.
The Saracens Head Inn is an ideal place to stay to discover The Wye Valley, Forest of Dean, Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains, The Welsh Marches, and the Valleys of South Wales.
We are within seven miles of the small market towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth. Abergavenny and the Cathedral cities of Hereford and Gloucester are also a 30 minute drive away, with Cardiff and Bristol both being accessible within an hour.
We are now open for food every Lunchtime and Evening – and the bar is open all day, every day, from 11.00am.
All our staff wear masks and practice rigorous hand washing. We would prefer it if our customers did as well, and wear maskes if possible whilst moving around indoors.
There is no one way system and we now serve walk-ins – dogs are once again allowed in the bar.
Food is served as follows:
Breakfast: 8:30 – 9:30 (there is no buffet available)
Lunch: 12 – 14:30
Sandwiches: 12 – 14:30
Dinner: 18:30 – 20:30
There is free parking for residents.
Re: The Hand Ferry
After a two year hiatus, record breaking floods and the pandemic, it is with great pleasure that we can announce our lovely ancient hand drawn ferry is back in action. The tariff is £2 per adult, £1 per child, and will operate between 11am and 6pm (operation outside of these hours is possible by prior arrangement). As per usual, the crossing is dependent on weather/river levels for everyone’s safety so always best to check ahead if you are unsure. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
Kind regards. The Team
We serve a wide variety of dishes that change from season-to-season from our Lunch Menu, Dinner Menu and daily specials board.
Sandwiches and filled organic baguettes are also served during lunchtimes.
