Another month has flown by! With amazing weather, we have had such a fun past month at Muse, which we hope carries on until Autumn! Can you really beat a beer garden when the suns out with a refreshing cocktail in hand though? We think not.

Our main event this month and the one which we are most excited about (who wouldn’t be let’s be honest) is our first ever Gin Tasting evening! On Thursday, June 7th, we have invited you to come down and try 4 different gins and learn the science behind the tonics and garnishes that match the flavour notes, plus receive a prosecco cocktail on arrival, canapes, and a voucher for one complimentary gin and tonic at our sister bar, The Annex – all for just £25 per person! This evening is hosted in partnership with Divine Gin of Holmfirth, and we cannot wait. Unfortunately, tickets have sold out for this event, but as it’s been so popular we are aiming to hold another one in September – so stay tuned! Would you guys like to see more events like this in the future? Let us know!

The other event coming up this month is Father’s Day. It lands on Sunday 17th of June this year, and we have a cracking menu running that day. You can choose from two options, either two courses for £18.95 or three courses for £22.95 which includes starters, mains and desserts, all made fresh from our brand-new head chef (more on him to follow!). Dishes include a scrumptious rack of home smoked ribs or garlic and lamb skewers, pot roast chicken breast, some roast sirloin and of course classics like beer battered fish and chips or Cumberland sausage and creamed mash. All dishes we know dad will love! We still have some tables left, however they are filling up fast – so we recommend reserving your table asap.  We will be running our usual Sunday hours for food (12-7pm) however we will only be running the Father’s Day menu – check out our website or Facebook page for the full menu!

We’ve also brought a bit of “Landan” and “dansaath” (horrific phonetic interpretations of a cockney accent there) up to the North with our brand-new installation of Camden Hells Lager and Camden IPA! These new additions to our bar give our beer drinkers a couple of interesting and different options this summer instead of the usual Stella. With their light and refreshing taste, including notes of fruity, hoppy goodness, their lager and IPA are delicious and dry, cooling you down instantly on these balmy summer days. Yum!

If you’ve been in to Muse recently you might have noticed a couple of new faces – we are so excited to welcome to the team our new General Manager, Tee, who is bringing lots of fresh ideas and energy to Muse! We can’t wait to see how he shakes things up, and we want you guys to give him a big welcome, so say hi to him when you come in and make him feel at home in sunny Saddleworth. We are also welcoming our new Head Chef, John! John is joining us from the famed Victors, in Hale, and has already shown us some amazing food ideas which we can’t wait to roll out to you guys to see what you think. We highly recommend coming in to see us over this next month as we think you will enjoy all these new changes!

Lastly this month we are hosting our first private cocktail masterclass! Due to an enquiry we’ve had which caught our attention, we’ve decided to add this to the list of events which makes Muse the best bar in Saddleworth. With the option of either making three cocktails and learning the tricks of the trade with our experienced bartenders for £25.00 pp or making 5 cocktails for £35.00 pp, you can make your hen do/work do/birthday/average Tuesday just that extra bit awesome! Email bookings@musebargroup.com for more info and to see what dates we have available.

That’s all for this month folks! As ever please follow us on social (Facebook & Instagram) to keep up to date with offers and events, behind the scenes shots and everything else in between. Until next time – stay classy, Saddleworth.
