I visited with my partner and 7 year old son. It was one of the few hotels which allowed a one-night stay over the weekend, and was also one of the least expensive. Our room was fab with plenty room for all of us (our son was on a bed which pulled out from a platform) and the bathroom was spacious and spotless. The staff were friendly and obliging. We forgot to book for dinner, and they were full up, but they directed us to their sister hotel down the road where we had a great meal. Breakfast at the Mizen was top too - in addition to the cooked breakfast there was fresh fruit and great museli.

Went for dinner and it exceeded expectations, which were quite high. The most delicious potatoes I think I have ever tasted but couldn't eat too many of them because of the size of the portions of herring followed by mussels. Delightful service from young waiters who were very attentive and helpful. Wish it was nearer to home.

Our first visit for dinner at Mizen Head was 18 months ago,not long after new owners had taken over and refurb completed.Highly recommended by our biased local B&B owner,we forgave the poor service and average food as teething problems.
However,our second visit last week found no improvement in service and the much vaunted food a disappointment.
Not that the staff were impolite but there was just not enough of them.
The quirkily dishevelled manager could do with getting help for the rushed,solitary waitress,rather than constantly popping corks for tables of loud businessmen.
Socks need to be pulled up all round.

Had a superb lunch here to celebrate a birthday. Whole experience was very good indeed. Wonderful sea food and meat dishes. Great to see where everything had come from. Loads of choice of sauces for the mussels. Potatoes divine - were they Aura?

In the last year I have taken 2 trips to Northumberland and travelled out my way on the 2nd visit just to dine at the Mizen Head again. The food is wonderful local fayre that is transformed into beautiful meals by a clearly talented chef. For those visiting what ever you select from the menu I'm sure it will be delicious but you MUST have the marmalade pudding for dessert. This is that best dessert I've ever eaten rich and dark and yet as light as a feather and the Seabuckthorn ice cream that accomapanies it is the perfect balance. The staff are helpful and relaxed and really make the Mizen Head a dining experience not to be missed.
