A HEREFORDSHIRE restaurant has won a place on the AA Restaurant Guide 2023.

The Saracens Inn, in Symonds Yat, was awarded one rosette for its high standards.

Now in its 29th edition, AA's Restaurant Guide for 2023 provides food lovers with breakdowns of restaurants by county, including a detailed description of each destination, information on latest chef changes, opening times, sample menu prices and images of many of the featured locations.


One rosette means a restaurant is achieving standards that stand out in its local area, including food prepared with care, understanding and skill, good quality ingredients and the same expectations apply to hotel restaurants where guests should be able to eat in confidence and a sense of anticipation.

"We are thrilled to have retained our AA Rosette for another year," said co-owner Chris Rollinson.

"The award belongs to our kitchen and front of house team of course, who work very hard to maintain the standard required by the AA – sometimes whilst dealing with quite large numbers.


"It is a huge pat on the back for all of the team."

The Saracens Head Inn has stood for centuries on the east bank of the river Wye, where the river flows into a steep wooded gorge, on the edge of the Forest of Dean.

Situated in the heart of the Wye Valley between Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, this family run Inn is popular with walkers, cyclists, canoeists, fishermen and fans of good food and real ales.

It also offers bed and breakfast accommodation, with most rooms overlooking the river Wye.

Eat and drink in the flag-floored bar, cosy lounge, or the restaurant and dining room, or watching the ancient hand ferry from one of our riverside terraces.
