Stayed in Bamburgh over Christmas.Heard that the Mizen Head was serving good fish,so booked a table for Christmas Eve.Good didn't come close ! It was sublime ! Thank you Mizen Head for kicking off a great week in Northumberland. The staff were very friendly and attentive and we immediately booked another evening meal which was equally as good.Thank you.

An absolutely excellent meal, knocking on the door of Michelin standards. Along with superb service this is a must visit venue for any food lover. I had Moroccan mussels, delicious, followed by possibly the best Dover sole I have ever eaten. Completed the meal with a very tasty lemon tart. Good wines and a super setting. Well done to all...

We lunched on Friday 16 December, the experience as always was superb, we were looked after by Aaron who has the blend of professionalism and friendliness just right. The dining experience was simply outstanding, with the seafood starters and fish main courses being memorable. It is so rewarding to find a restaurant of this calibre which consistently delivers the highest... More

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
