Second time at muse, visited with family for breakfast. Lovely food, friendly staff, service was quick. The ambience is lovely, I commented that even though it was busy it wasn’t noisy. Can’t recommend muse enough and will definitely visit again.

Food excellent, service excellent!

This is my second visit to this lovely restaurant and it was just as fab as the first with the additional and unexpected and great interaction with my wonderful waitress.

I was dining alone and my waitress gave me lots of space when I was eating (this was great as I wanted to read my book) but at the end she spent time chatting to me and telling me about the local area including their sister restaurant the Bay Horse which I have already visited and found delightful and Ceno Trattoria which was on my list of places to try!

Better than ever. Lovely fish pancake, full of good fish. Lots of tasty sauce. Not heavy. Staff are always on the button here and we had a table well spaced from other diners. Amazing menus. Loads of choice. Modern fresh food and good deserts too.
Brilliant place open all day.

Food excellent, unfortunately the red wine sold by the glass is disappointing, not to my our taste. The only Australian Shiraz on offer is by the bottle! which is our wine of choice, do not see why this cannot be sold by the glass as Australian wines are very popular in the UK.

Pleasantly surprised by the food, I ordered the sea bass and it was utterly delightful. Wonderful complementary flavours, perfectly cooked. For desert I had chocolate bread (not bread and butter) pudding, a throwback to my childhood. It was a more de,I ate and lighter version of traditional bread pudding.

Our waitress was suitably attentive and made helpful suggestions.

Highly recommend and I will definitely be going back!

This is one of our favourite and treaty places to eat. It is still good, but I feel it has become a little pricey v quality. Especially drinks £7 for a 175ml of mediocre red wine was a bit steep and the cheese board was pathetic, only having two cheeses and grapes on the turn!

My heart goes out to the hospitality industry, but I feel the additional costs are now being felt by the customer, and I'm not happy to pay it. So, for me something needs to change, and I suppose I'll be eating out less of this is the new experience.

I booked a table for 3 people at 6pm over a week ago then confirmed I was coming the day before, not once was I told the kitchen stopped serving at 6. I called at 5.47 to say we may be a couple of mins late, the girl who answered said she would have to check with the kitchen as they may not serve us! The email said there is a 10 minute grace so we should’ve been ok for 6.10pm, we actually arrived at 6.01pm. I didn’t feel we had a warm welcome from the girl at the front, she may have been the girl who I spoke to on the phone, she was also quite neutral when she served our drinks, the other girls were lovely. I do come to Muse with my husband as it’s usually very friendly and the food is lovely, I am vegan so it’s hard to find a nice place to eat but might look elsewhere in future. The food was lovely it was the way we were treated before and on arrival.

Once again I got put in the bar with a freezing draft every time the door opened, I've mentioned this in a review before, three members of staff sat at the end of the bar having their lunch rather unprofessional I think. And the noise from behind the bar was overwhelming, perhaps I'm not beautiful enough to be seated in the main restaurant or perhaps not seen to be pretentious enough, when booking online it asked if we were celebrating anything, which we were,, my daughters birthday, which I thought was a nice touch, to my disappointment nothing came of it,, NOT a major problem but why have it on the app if nothing is to come of it,
On a positive note, the food was excellent just a shame we were made to feel ostracised from the rest of the diners enjoying the atmosphere of a Christmas Sunday lunch,,

Delicious breakfast. Eggs Benedict was perfect, asked for the ham to be swapped for crispy bacon which was no problem. Lovely ambiance for a Sunday morning
