Last had a meal in the Mizen Head just over 2 years ago, Its now changed hands, and whilst we had a great meal last time, this surpassed it by miles. Excellent service from young polite staff, great menu, great wine list. We all (4 of us) had seafood both for our starter and main course. (if you eat in a seafood restaurant, why choose meat?) the quality of our meals was absolutely top drawer, we will certainly be back the next time we visit Bamburgh

excellent fare and restful dining experience. our trip to the Mizen Head was a long drive from Nth. Tyneside and it was well worth it on a cold March day, as the food was a very enjoyable experience.

Ate here on Friday evening and can recommend it as serving some of the best food I have ever tasted.
The best selection and quality of mussels I have ever eaten in the UK.
Ribeye steak with fresh tarragon sauce....a dream.
Unfortunately no space left for any dessert or cheese....

We were staying at the hotel and decided to use the restaurant too. Plenty of staff around, we were never left waiting or wanting. I chose mussels in a Spanish-inspired sauce followed by whole sole. My wife chose calamari followed by turbot. Nice desserts followed.

The restaurant was warm, formally laid out but otherwise casual. Prices were more than you'd expect to pay locally, but for this standard of food and service, was really very reasonable. (The fish mains came in at around £16 for example). Meal for two with a glass of wine and coffee came to about £75.

Can't think of any reason to mark down this restaurant. The coffee was't great, but that's not enough to dent the five stars.

Have been a few times and love the extensive menu, even at lunchtime in the winter. Beautifully prepared, delicious food in a lovely dining room. The only (slight) criticism is that it would be nice for the prawns in curry to be shelled before serving - or at least a finger bowl supplied. But all in all I would still recommend the Mizen and give it top ranking.
