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.
The best breakfast anywhere. Just wonderful. Great service, lovely ambience and every time we go, my wife and I both agree it is the best breakfast around. Love going there
Good atmosphere, attentive staff, great food. The plat de jour menu with accompanying wine is good value. Muse is good at maintaining a high standard so you know you are unlikely to be disappointed.
Excellent experience, food was great, complemented by excellent attentive staff. A very enjoyable meal in a nice relaxed atmosphere. No hesitation in re-booking another afternoon lunch or evening meal.
