Wasn't expecting much on an off peak and dreary trip down to Mizen Head, just relieved to find somewhere open. Was pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome and friendly, helpful staff. The bar is connected to the village shop so when I asked if the...More

Fabulous position overlooking the bay. The crab sandwich was an absolute dream - that first bite was one of the highlights of my holiday! It's basic food, no frills or great presentation but who needs it with crab that fresh.

The soup of the day was courgette and parmesan served with home made brown bread. It was perfect. The overall feel of the place is very relaxed. Excellent half pint of Murphys.

This pub still has the best seafood chowder in the world. It is better than excellent. If you are within 50k of this pub then go there. Oh, the rest of the grub's great as well.

I visited 2 days ago and paid with a credit card. It was VISA, so they definitely accept that.
