As one of the finest restaurants in Yarm, Muse is good news for anyone who likes exceptionally high-quality food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Muse is award-winning, featured in the Michelin Guide and each of its menus is made up of classic British flavours done with a slight Muse twist. Right on the High Street and with pleasing contemporary decor everywhere in sight (as well an al fresco area for when the sun comes out), Muse is a continental cafe-style restaurant that’s deservedly very popular. No harm done in making a reservation online before you go just to be on the safe side.
The exterior of Muse – cool and olive green and very much Parisian-looking – is enough in itself to tempt you through the doors because you can just tell it’s going to be good. Then you have the interior that’s spacious and breezy with contemporary decor and local artists’ work adorned on the walls that makes you want to sit and soak up the atmosphere all day. Whatever time of day you’ve made your reservation for, we guarantee this Yarm High Street gem will please and make you want to stay longer. The food, the drinks, the works.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, kids, each have their own well-thought-about menu at Muse, alongside gluten-free menus, a vegetarian menu and an impressive Sunday lunch. The team here only use the freshest seasonal ingredients to prepare everything on all of them, and the resulting dishes are rustic and nail-bitingly beautiful to look at. They’re also exceptional to taste, of course, and we’d be here all day trying to list our favourites from each of them. So we’ll give you a taste of the dinner menu. Rump of lamb with apricot cous cous, chargrilled leek, spiced carrot ketchup and madeira jus, anyone? Or perhaps pan-fried sea bream with mussels, clams, samphire, dressed chicory and shellfish mayonnaise? Mmmm.

Out evening at Muse in Yarm. I've had some good starters and some good main courses, I've even had some good sweet courses, but we have never ever had 3 courses that were so stunningly excellent and complimented each other so well. It's a measure of just how good the overall meal had been when we don't feel bloated. Even the bottle of red wine was wonderful. Dreading the bill mind, but there again if it's good you don't mind 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁
First class, good food and above all great service by all the staff. The whole experience was a credit to the management. I will have no hesitation to recommending Muse To my family and friends. Not an easy field to be in but you are doing it right. See you next time. Thanks. David & J
Lovely environment and ambience, but did feel slightly "squeezed in" with table proximity. Service was very good with attentive staff keen to please. Starter was pleasant, but quite small. £9 for 5 prawns! Scallops didn't appear to have the breadcrumb as per the menu description but were tasty. Main (chicken) was nice with good flavours. Nice dressing. Dessert menu was a bit disappointing and quite expensive so chose not to order. Environment = 9/10 Staff = 9/10 Food = 8/10 Value = 7/10 Still one of the best restaurants around, but noticed a few changes to the menu which was a shame ( e.g. No lobster?). Overall 8/10.
Was quite busy for a Tuesday night and my wife felt like we were in quite a cramped spot where we were sat. She was also disappointed at the fact that the online menu showed that scallops were available as a starter, only to find that is the one thing that’s not actually on the menu in the place itself. I thoroughly enjoyed the seafood pancake starter and lamb main - they were excellent. As was my wife’s beef rib dish. Excellent night celebrating our anniversary
Muse is always a lovely option to eat in Yarm high street. The food is super and the staff is outstanding. My daughter is celiac and they always have the best option for her including bread and pasta. The atmosphere is fantastic. ❤️
Gorgeous meal in a lovely restaurant, we love Muse and have always had excellent food and service. The menu has a great choice and we often find it hard to decide what to have. We'll definitely be eating her again!
