Saracen’s Head

Market Place Southwell Nottinghamshire NG25 0HE

Right in the middle of Southwell, opposite the Minster, the Saracen’s Head has had some ups and downs in its long history, but its present owners have done a great job in reviving this ancient inn. The inn’s main claim to historic fame is as the place where the doomed King Charles I had some of his Scottish rebels round for dinner – but it did not stop them from handing him over to the Parliamentarians at Newark the day after; his execution was to follow.Today, the inn’s public rooms have  been done out in proud vintage style, beneath a fine timber ceiling, where a good-value, modern British menu features main courses like corn-fed chicken supreme with potatoes, beans, peas and asparagus in a white-wine sauce.. Afternoon tea is offered at the weekend with oodles of jam and cream. Very comfy.
