Great beer, friendly bar staff and clientele. Three real ales on my last visit and we'll kept. They sell Haribo as well as crisps!

The Saracens Head is a lovely friendly, family run pub that makes everyone welcome and serve the best Sunday lunch I have ever had in Newton Abbot. Reasonably priced and great value for money. Book early to avoid disappointment.

Popped in for a quick pint; quite a busy place. The food looked very cheap but drinks prices were around average. £6.50 for two pints. The drinks were served decently. Service was polite. There is a pool table but it's quite cramped. Overall a standard...More
