Produce and ingredients for MUSU are sourced only from premium suppliers, with A4 grade Wagyu beef, kombu, high grade traditional soy sauce from Japan, Skye langoustines, salt-aged free-range duck, and Wiltshire truffles from the UK.
Available both during the day and night from Wednesday evening to Saturday evening, the Sushi & Wine experience is £35 per person.
