    Rudest Event Planner we’ve ever met!!!

    J, the events manager for the Saracen's Head, is shockingly rude and very unprofessional. She caused the bride and groom a lot of stress and not to mention she that she lost all the wedding plans and messed up the seating plan. She is extremely rude and abrupt when talking to people too. Certainly not the friendly, helpful calming wedding events planner you would expect or want for your big day.

    The Saracens gave us a beautiful wedding day we will cherish always.
    Everyone complimented the food, service and staff.
    Julie kept in contact regularly leading up to the big day ans made sure everything ran smoothly during the big day .
    The icing on the cake was spending the next morning with our guests at breakfast after all staying in the lovely rooms .
    Would highly recommend.

    The staff and the venue were perfect for our small intimate wedding would recommend the Saracens head hotel to anyone planning a wedding. We also had our ceremony there; they were very efficient in changing room around from ceremony to wedding breakfast then again for evening. Nothing was too much trouble. The hotel suites were also very nice.

    Planned a last minute wedding here March 2016. All staff really helpful and had attention to the little detail. Nice pub good food, nice hotel rooms. Staff all friendly and set the room up to look amazing. Wedding on a budget that didn't look like it.
