The Saracens Head stands on the main street of a pleasant market town, close to Swindon. It has lots of character, including a popular bar dating from 1828. The fine selection of real ales, and some excellent home-cooked food are highlights. Bedrooms, which vary in size, are generally compact. A rear car park and a patio area are both available.
