    After enjoying a visit to Muse kitchen a couple of years ago we decided to revisit it. The young woman who greeted us was unfriendly and the menu very limited. The lamb we had was nice but the accompaniments just didn't go with the dish. Way too spicy that took away the gentle taste of the lamb. The dessert I chose was a souffle with 'hay icecream' it was served on a plate surrounded by hay which I didn't think was very hygienic , although it did taste delicious..

    It is suggested that the Brussel sprout dish could be improved enormously if the chef took care to prevent the dish being prevented without the fibrous content. It was both annoying and greatly reduced the pleasure. We felt the service was not at the level of similar style restuarnts. We were left to fill our own water and wine glasses and were left to fend for ourselves.

    We have been here a couple of times for dinner and the food has been fantastic. Unfortunately this time we went there for lunch and we were quite disappointed. It wasn't bad but just not up to the Muse Kitchen standard we are used to.
