A 16th-century hideaway near Balsall Common, Ye Olde Saracen’s Head serves hearty and wholesome British cuisine. Offsetting outdoor dining in summer, the cosy interior offers quaint snugs, crackling open fires and squashy leather furnishings.

Using the distinctive charcoal method of cooking, Ye Olde Saracen’s Head in Coventry is renowned for its supreme grills, with offerings including baby chicken with roast root veg, or coriander lamb burger with all the trimmings. Other classics from the Saracen’s menu include fresh fish of the day battered in house ale, or seafood and chorizo linguine.

Modern takes on classic desserts at Saracen’s Head restaurant include plum soup with vanilla panna cotta, or chocolate and chilli praline torte. Boasting one of the most accomplished cellars in the area, the bar is filled with fine wines, real ales and rich coffees.

A lovingly-converted setting, Ye Olde Saracen’s Head is a favourite for honest, locally sourced produce. Central Berkswell is a 7-minute drive away.

    Not over impressed with outside of building and dining space is huge. We went at lunchtime so not very busy. 6 in our party ranging from teenager to grandparents. Food was great diverse menu and very helpful with food allergy problem. Really enjoyable and would certainly go again as everyone had a great meal.

    Food was nothing special, ask waiter for something and he never came back! 30 minutes it took for our coffee to come and the pub was not busy and when it came it was icy cold! Offered a refund and another coffee came it was awful!!

    Four of us had a very enjoyable evening at Ye Olde Saracens Head Balsall Common. The food and service was excellent. Three of us had the lamb dish and one had the Salmon. All were very satisfied with their meal. Sweets were superb and large. Only negative was only one choice for vegetarians on the menu, more needed please. Will go again and will recommend.
