More Information

Dating back over 400 years, the Saracens Head featured in the Charles Dickens novel, ‘The Pickwick Papers’. It now mixes history, homely comforts and modern luxury.

A centrepiece in Towcester, the Saracens Head serves food all day in the lounge and bar areas, from traditional steak or fish and chips, to more modern choices. The split-level lounge bar has welcomed locals and guests to Towcester for hundreds of years, with 3 distinct areas in which to relax and enjoy delicious snacks.
On a Roman street, the Saracen's Head is ideally placed for Towcester Racecourse. The Silverstone race track is just 3 miles (4.8 km) away. Also nearby is Stoke Bruerne, a canal-side village with cottages and narrow boats.
