Smoky, subtle and fresh, Muse's cured ocean trout - made sharp with an accompaniment of Udder Farm yoghurt - is a sparkling entrée that sets the scene for a meal of triumphs. Venison comes next, the gaminess of the meat balanced with a medley of tangy cherries, sweet roasted onions, pillow-like dollops of Binnorie goat's cheese and nutty quinoa thrown in for texture. Confit lamb belly, cooked to a state of melt-in-your-mouth happiness, is taken down a simpler, but nonetheless full-flavoured path with lemon, rosemary and onions of the pickled and caramelised variety. There's theatre in the room, with its towering glass ceilings and gleaming central kitchen, made cosy with the crackle of an open fire, and you can rely on the needle-sharp floor staff to guide you through the lengthy wine list and help you settle between pan-fried doughnuts or vanilla bean custard with char-grilled peaches to close proceedings.
