Wow wow wow! We have just had the most excellent meal at the Mizen, it compelled me to write a review immediately! We have never been looked after so well, truly treated like royalty! The food was absolutely incredible, better than all of the Michelin Star restaurants we have visited! Honestly absolutely everything about the Mizen was perfect, even the... More

Stayed for 2 nights half board. Lovely accommodation, delicious food with a speciality for seafood, a bar stocking approaching 100 different Gins and friendly staff. Wouldn't think twice about returning. One minute from Bamburgh castle and the wonderful beach.

We visited 2 years ago and it was a brilliant meal. I was a little worried about today as the second time can sometimes be a let down to your great memory. However, I had nothing to worry about yet again it was a brilliantly cooked meal. I could go on with superlatives to describe it, but I won't. Don't... More

We visited on a November evening and were surprised to find it so busy. Being pregnant I struggled a bit for choice, but may have been better if I asked. Food and service was very good

Visited on recomendation with friends for a special occasion. Excellent seafood, local oysters and superb lobster served without the sauces offered on the menu. My friends' fish and were also excellent. Good wine list. The atmosphere was good as was the service if a little casual. Will certainly be looking for a reason to return soon.

Came here after reading recommendations on trip advisor whilst staying in the area on holiday. What a find..so glad we came. John Dory, scallops and razor class....what more could you ask for on a menu...then followed up by a plum sake with coffee. Not the cheapest restaurant around £135 for 3 but that did include an organic wine as well.... More

The Mizen Head is famous for its fish and has lived up to that reputation on both our visits. The service does slightly let the place down (hence Very Good and not Excellent). While friendly enough, the quality of service from a premier restaurant in the area is slightly disappointing. Looking forward to visiting again next time we're in the... More

An enjoyable evening, which included an overnight stay, however they need to work on the detail for this to be as good as it sets out to be. Food was good but not excellent, for the money. Scallops for example were plentiful for the hefty £22 price tag, however were not presented well and the overall impression was an overpriced... More

We often visit the restaurant, on our own and also with friends. The food is amazing and quite simply the best fish restaurant we have every visited. Never once have we every been disappointed. This time we decided to stay overnight in one of their lovely rooms and that was also a very good experience. Comfortable beds, lovely decor, immaculately... More
