We had not been back to the Muse for a few months so thought a return visit was in order. The Kitchen is still going strong and serving beautifully prepared food. This time we shared the slow roasted lamb shoulder. It was delightful. Our other dishes were excellent as was the service. It's good to report that Muse Kitchen is... More

Enjoyed a deightful lunch at Muse prior to a n afternoon concert. Went with another couple and shared fresh baked sourdough bread and a terrine for staters. After entrees and a shared main of superbly baked lamb shoulder, we were sated and very well satisfied. This combined with excellent Hunter Shiraz and Verdello made for a magnificent meal. The service... More

Muse's junior relative certainly holds its head high amongst the array of talent on show in the Hunter Valley. Tucked away alongside the classy Keith Tulloch Winery on Hermitage Drive, it is an easy lunch destination for anyone sampling the tastes of the Tulloch wines. This was a return visit and the good memories were easily upheld. We shared the... More

There's just something quaint and lovely about the setting of Muse within the Keith Tulloch vineyard. The interiors are impeccably styled, outdoor seating feels like you're in a private European haven. We've eaten here many times and the food is always remarkable - sandwiches are gourmet and filling, the wine selection is strong and the attitude and friendliness of the... More

such amazing food and a great experience! The service was excellent. My partner had the scallops and was beyond happy. I had the gorgonzola gnocchi and it was delicious. The muse coconut is an amazing dessert! I would recommend this to everyone.

Wow. This perfect little corner in the Hunter Valley is a real charmer. Located at the Keith Tulloch cellar door, this little lunch restaurant combined beautiful, healthy produce with a touch of wine decadence. The service was friendly and charming, and the menu offered so much choice that it took some time to make a decision. I had the chicken... More

Hubby took me here for my birthday. We came on a Friday for lunch. Food was very nice, and service was also excellent. Price was just over $140 including a bottle of wine. We were too full to have dessert, but they surprised me with a "Happy birthday" plate with a small piece of donut on the side! Very nice... More

In a beautiful setting in the courtyard of a vineyard. Both inside and outside seating. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. We were a party of ten all with different orders which were handled expertly. Smaliish but well crafted menu.

Arriving uncooked at 12.30 Saturday, we were happy to score one of the last few seats in a venue which became quite busy . A small selection of appetisers, entres and main meals- all very tasty. A special nod to the gnocchi - best I have ever tasted -they usually are tasteless rubbery bullets. A delay for our main meal... More

Good food & professional service. The degustation was good value for money. So much food - could have rolled out of there but had to eat the dessert regardless!
