This country pub lured owners Tim and Janie back from the Alps - Norfolk ales, fine French wines and local Morston mussels on the menu

Lost in the lanes of deepest Norfolk, an English inn that’s hard to match. Outside, Georgian red-brick walls stand to attention at the front, but nip round the back and find them at ease in a beautiful courtyard where you can knock back a pint of Wherry in the evening sun before slipping inside to eat. Tim and Janie upped sticks from the Alps, unable to resist the allure of this lovely old inn. A sympathetic refurbishment has worked its magic, but the spirit remains the same: this is a country-house pub with lovely staff who go the extra mile. Downstairs the bar hums with happy locals who come for Norfolk ales and good French wines, while the food in the restaurant is as good as ever: Norfolk pheasant and rabbit terrine, wild duck or Cromer crab, treacle tart and caramel ice-cream. Upstairs, there's a sitting room on the landing, then six pretty rooms. All have have smart carpets, wooden furniture, comfy beds and sparkling bathrooms. There's masses to do: ancient Norwich, the coast at Cromer, golf on the cliffs at Sheringham, Blickling Hall, a Jacobean pile. Don't miss Sunday lunch.

"My husband, dog and I have just spent an incredibly relaxing two nights dinner, bed and breakfast at the Saracen's Head. Wonderful food, quality accommodation and tranquil atmosphere. Felt like a much longer holiday and we are looking forward to returning in June 2015. "

"A group of us stayed for 4 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Newly decorated rooms very tastefully done. Excellent food and drink. Tim and co were very accommodating, we would highly recommend. Lovely inn would definitely re visit."
