user reviews of Mizen Head Hotel, Bamburgh

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

My wife and I had a couple of meals here during September. The Mizen has definitely made a reputation for itsself and I would advise booking if you want to make certain of getting a table. The food is impecable and is served in an unhurried manner by the friendly staff. Some innovate starters are on the ever changing menu and it took my 20 minutes to make up my mind for starter and main course. Portion sizes are on the large side so come with a healthy appetite.

Now completely refurbished and is basically an eatery with a small bar area and some residential rooms. Food is definately worth a visit but I wouldn't go there just for a drink. Seafood a speciality me thinks including fresh oysters when available and mussels in a number of different ways.

An update is required I think - Feb Half term 2011. It seems the owners of the Castle Hotel/Pub have taken over the Mizen Head and directions were on the Castle door to go the Mizen Head as the Castle was closed for refurbishment (at Half Term!!!!) The staff at the Mizen were pleasant and helpful, also the food was usual holidaymaker fodder. The Beer was Black Sheep in pretty good condition, better than the Victoria down the road.

It seems that when the Castle is back in action, the Mizen will be changed (again!) and become an upmarket restaurant with cocktail bar. I fear they are making a big mistake as this will lose a big slice of the holiday trade on which this area depends. In the Cameron/Clegg Return to Victorian times Society, people will have less to spend - changing the current style which has been going on for many, many years, will exclude part of the available trade. If it's not broke - don't fix it!!

This hotel has re-opened after an absence of a couple of years or so. Although the place definately needed a re-fit, the food used to be good bar fodder at reasonable prices. It is now re-furbished and looks a lot cleaner; good to see they have two hand pumps, though only one beer available - Black Sheep (rather than the more imaginative north east brewerys like Hadrian and Border) in reasonable condition. The food now however is of a lower standard and over priced. But there seems to be another problem. The landlord/owner seems more interested in playing his guitar rather than getting really stuck in managing the place. We left when we couldn't get served - the people behind the bar seemed to be from Royston Vasey!*!
