    The food is always amazing but the Valentine’s special menu was really well thought out. Just enough of each portion with quality ingredients.

    Booked via OpenTable but on arrival we were told that there was no confirmation on their system. I showed the email/sms showing the confirmation and they were happy to honour the reservation. A few minutes later the head waiter informed us that the confirmation had just come through. We had a lovely meal consisting of a Sunday roast and a cod dish followed by a lovely crumble. Service was very good

    Excellent dining experience but please do not add the voluntary service charge to the bill. It makes it embarrassing for customers and staff when you ask them to remove it! If people choose to pay extra for excellent service, they will do. But don’t try and force people to do so. It’s like paying the checkout person at Tesco for putting your shopping through checkout.

    Family evening ruined We were allocated a table for 4 behind the entrance door which was a waiting area and draughty. A very rowdy group were waiting and the language they were using was not appropriate. Also someone vaping in the entrance doorway in full view. Fortunately the quality of the food was good. We decided to leave after main course which was a shame as we were looking forward to a good evening.

    Went in with high expectations as this restaurant was recommended by a few friends of mine Positive to start: stone bass was lovely and very different dish to what I’d usually go for . Wine was lovely too. Dessert was pretty nice and presentation of all dishes was great. Service was pretty good overall, smiles and frequent visits. A little bit underwhelmed by the quality of the dishes , think it was a case over over promising and under delivering on a couple of them. In our humous we found a piece of solid black plastic - these things happen , so I raised it to the waitress just so they knew and didn’t kick up a fuss. However it wasn’t particularly acknowledged or taken off the bill meaning I had to ask when it came to it. (Maybe a lack of comms to her superior ) they did knock it off. My starter was pretty dry so I didn’t finish it which was a shame and my partners pate had a grainy texture :(

    Met a friend for lunch today, it was absolutely fabulous from start to finish! Fantastic choice of food, from fixed price menu to light lunches & a la carte. We both had the seafood pancake with Thermidor sauce from the light lunch menu, it came with french fries & a lovely salad that even had strawberries in, it was really delicious. We then had sticky toffee pudding & the carrot cake for dessert, both amazing. The atmosphere was great & the service was outstanding, we’ll definitely be back. Would strongly recommend.

    The fillet steak was fatty and chewy and my wife left most of it. We had to ask for it to be taken off our bill as they didn't do it automatically when we complained about the steak.

    As usual the food is of that level hard to define. The Sunday lunch option was value for money and well cooked and presented. Took a while to arrive but it was very busy. One chicken dish option was a bit light on fries, bordering on a snack portion. Overall, recommended.

    1) no vegan menu 2) porridge was not the same as had previously sicky sweet 3) dont like service charge added - feel pressured by this, more than happy to leave a tip but not happy about the added charge. Pay the staff properly! 4) coffee was lovely! 5) no good value, most of the tabke were disappointed with an element of the brekkie

    Food and service really good .... i have no issue with leaving a 'tip' and usually leave around 10% ...Muse have a Discretionary 12.5% automatically added which in my personal opinion is excessive.. A good percentage of customers might feel uncomfortable asking for a reduced percentage

    We dined on New Year’s Eve and were treated warmly and the restaurant had a great atmosphere on the evening. I am vegetarian and my wife is vegan so we knew pretty much before we dined what dishes we were going to eat. The parsnip soup starter was excellent very tasty and presented well. The main course of beetroot wellington looked attractive on the plate but was not worth the £20 price as the wellington was very small and the garnish of mushrooms and beetroot although tasty was very small. I am glad we ordered a side of chips which I feel should have been included considering the size of the main course. Would recommend the restaurant very nice dining experience but the vegan/vegetarian options could be improved and increased in portion size for the price being charged.
