Food and service were both good but it is just too cold now for outdoor eating. Heaters are inadequate.

Very disappointed in Muse Yarm visited on Friday 15th October ordered main meals Burger (could have had better value at MacDonalds) & Cod dish. This was very tasty but the portions very small especially the cod & burger so felt extremely ripped off in price & portion size. We have visited Muse frequently over the last 8 years but since re opening after covid - VERY DISAPPOINTING so over priced for what food you are served. Came away hungry unless you are willing to pay more extreme prices for starter & dessert. Went to Tomhawks in Yarm Saturday excellent meal value for money 👍

Great restaurant and great food, but it very much felt like we were being rushed. We understood the time constraints of the table, but the servers were hovering over us throughout. We could barely get through a conversation without being interrupted e.g. we were asked if we wanted any more drinks despite our glasses being full.

Our server, Abby, was lovely. She set out by explaining that if we wanted breakfast we had to order before breakfast service stopped and that we could order lunch, too, but it would be served after breakfast service. She answered all our questions about the menu and helped us to find out details of dishes such as ingredients. Hers is such personal, patient and professional service and we left feeling warmed by our experience in Muse. Will definitely go again for the great food and service.

Seafood Pancake is excellent.
I have it everything I visit Muse.
Only way to improve it for me would be to add scallops.😍

Excellent food. Not giant throw it on the plate pub food. Just well presented filling plates of wonderful tasting food. Excellent service from friendly and attentive staff. The outside covered dining areas with infrared heaters make it perfect to imagine you could be in Southern European town.

Food is so tasty and service is wonderful.
Lovely place to visit when you’re wanting something extra special.

Lunch for 4, to include 2 vegetarians. There were only 2 veggie choices on the lunch menu, both acceptable. It would have been nicer to have sourdough toast with the avocado eggs as the bread used made for a light lunch. The halloumi cheese sandwich was a little too heavily flavoured with garlic but other wise fine. The other lunch meals were good. The ambience was good but as it was busy, a little noisy. Would return but would like a greater choice of veggie sandwiches on the lunch menu.
