Qype: Saracens Head Inn in Symonds Yat

Symonds Yat - Eating & Drinking - Pubs & Bars - Pubs

This could and should be a really good pub. A 16th century inn nestled in a beautiful valley with 5 decent ales on tap - what's not to like?

It's just a bit weird really. The management are bizarre. When we arrived they closed the bar for 20 minutes to clean the floor, and the staff just stood around and didn't say anything, not at all interested in chatting to the customers. They've cramped the bar area with seating and a stupid phone box right in the way, and the toilets look like they came out of a hotel - really weird marble sinks, totally out of place.

On the plus side, Old Peculiar, and Wye Valley Hereford Pale Ale on draft does make up for most sins, but if we weren't a captive audience, we wouldn't have stayed here.
