I am so glad that we booked the large, private, function room (The Shed) at The Museum for 9 family members as part of my partner's surprise 50th weekend - we were not disappointed - first class! My partner had no idea where he was being taken to, in rural Dorset and as we arrived, he mentioned about The Museum Inn, so the surprise was 'thumbs up' from him!
The Shed offered a large, rustic-style oak, kitchen table, so there was plenty of room for 9 of us. Our docking station was allowed to be used, giving us background music. The room looked like it could have been a library, with wrought iron chandeliers and very rustic. We did not feel that we were 'cut off' from the rest of the restaurant, as the staff came into The Shed many times to check if everything was alright with the room, if we were ready to order, with no hurry if we had not decided, if we required any more drinks, to take our food orders, if our food was satisfactory. There are rooms available that are full of character, but I have entered this review as a restaurant.
The food was fabulous, with great combinations of flavours and the service was outstanding. My partner was very impressed with our choice for his second night of his 50th weekend.
