Located at the entrance to Pokolbin in the iconic Hungerford Hill Winery, Muse Restaurant is the creation of husband and wife team Troy and Megan Rhoades-Brown.
Troy and Megan opened Muse with the aim to offer a complete dining experience. With Troy applying his creativity in the kitchen and Megan her expertise in leading the front of house, Muse soon become renowned for not only its food but also for its professional and friendly service.
Offering a season driven Contemporary Australian menu, the food is fresh and exciting without overcomplicating the ingredients. Using quality produce, sourcing locally whenever possible, the dishes show technique, restraint and respect.
At Muse we are very passionate about sourcing the best produce. Locally when possible it’s these producers and suppliers that have the same attention to detail and love for their work as our chefs in the kitchen.”
Troy and his team of chefs are also keen gardeners. They plant, run and maintain an onsite farm garden at Muse Restaurant and their own home vegetable patches. These gardens successfully produce heirloom vegetables, edible flowers and herbs for the menus.
Muse Restaurant is located within the grounds of Hungerford Hill, a family owned and operated Hunter Valley icon and a champion of New South Wales winemaking.
The Vintry is a stunning architecturally designed Country House, luxuriously appointed with the quality furnishings and fittings but with the feel of a traditional bush retreat. A contemporary property with 4 spacious bedrooms includes 1 king size bedroom with hydrotherapy spa bath and 3 queen size bedrooms each with its own ensuite bathroom and private deck for those times when you would like some personal time to relax.
