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.

    Great food and service. Really impressed with the whole visit. Would recommend to all, the 7 of us had a most enjoyable meal.

    This restaurant is great! Looks lovely with lots of space inside and out. Staff very friendly and efficient - even had chilled water brought to the table without having to request it. Food delicious - I had pea, mint bean and feta risotto. The banoffie dessert was very tasty and presented differently to the normal way. We were left to stay at our table as long as we liked although were warned when booking that table may be required after 2 hours. Bit pricey but worth every penny.

    I would have given a higher rating for ambience but as we booked late my husband and I were surround by families with children who are always noisy. Food however, despite restaurant being very busy was as good as ever.
