We ate here for our final night in Northumberland.
It was more formal than some of the places we'd eaten in - to be expected as it is a hotel restaurant rather than a pub.
We were welcomed and shown into a lounge and served drinks while we pondered the menu. Lots of tempting dishes on offer.
The food was excellent, well cooked and well presented. A thoroughly enjoyable night out.

An excellent small hotel (11 bedrooms) with all you need for a short stay. The location is the village of Bamburgh which has many attractions including a historic castle. The bedroom was very spacious and comfortable. There is a varied breakfast menu including local kippers. And a high class seafood restaurant for evening meals - though there are other restaurants in the village. Highly recommended.

We stayed for two nights in the Mini-Suite and ate both evenings in the hotel, everything was very good.

The room was quite big with a comfortable sofa and the bathroom also a good size with a walk-in shower, everything spot-on.

The bar is a bit on the small size and to be honest not that comfortable but suitable for a pre-dinner drink, the bar stock is extensive.

There's a lot of fish on the menu and any we had was very good although the Fried Crispy Seafood dish is big, I couldn't finish mine and noted other diners give up on it, by now the chef should have cottoned on.

The downside of the whole place is that apparently it is closing down later in the year and is being converted into dwellings, lets hope the chef and his staff find somewhere local to continue their good work.

I have dined all over the world and therefore I feel qualified to say that The Mizen Head is a world class restaurant. I for one are devastated to hear that it is to close. My family and I will continue to visit until the last day.

Stayed for 3 nights in the Mizen Head Superior Double Room and had dinner twice in the restaurant. This is well located with a short walk into Bamburgh with its superb castle dominating the landscape and close to all the places one might want to visit such as Lindisfarne, Berwick, Cragside.
Bedroom was very comfortable but it is a pity the bar area is so small with rather uncomfortable seats so there was really nowhere to enjoy sitting before or after dinner.
However this is an outstanding place to enjoy fish at its very best - beautifully presented, absolutely fresh, generous helpings that put the meagre offerings in many London restaurants to shame. Starters and deserts were also excellent. Certainly two of the most enjoyable meals we have experienced. Just hope the new Chef expected maintains these standards.
