Dear Alison, I'm absolutely thrilled you enjoyed it and took the time to write such a glowing review. Running the restaurant is a massively consuming business and getting reviews like this make my day! Cheers Matt More

I have been many times, and Matt is a lovely guy and the food is out of this world. A truly different, delicious and intimate experience. He gets booked up quickly, so don't delay!

I first heard about Matt's Kitchen a couple of years ago, then bumped into Matt in the street one day & his enthusiasm for food shone through immediately. It took us quite a while to get a date to visit but it was certainly worth the wait... All of the food was amazing - the flavours & textures were playing... More

Forget Michelin Stars, although he deserves some. I grew up with good food. Matt is passionate about what he cooks and what goes into his dishes. I like this, and have never been disappointed. He's there and he delivers on all fronts.

To cater for a group of 25 out of the hobbit sized kitchen Matt has, and to not have one bad word about any of the numerous dishes served is testament to how brilliant the host/chef is! He welcomes you into his home, and shows his passion for what he does through his hosting and his culinary skills. Would recommend... More

Our first visit to Matt's. Outstanding food, great setting, all admirably run by Matt, with all the possibilities explained, this is without doubt the best meal we have had in a restaurant in a long time.

Six of us ate at Matt's Kitchen last Friday evening to celebrate my birthday. The food was great, the atmosphere unique and Matt's hosting impeccable. I can't recommend it more highly.

We are at Matt's Kitchen last Friday night - we regularly travel to Bruton from London for a relaxing weekend away and have been trying to get a booking for ages. Success finally and the meal more than lived up to our expectations. Fabulous atmosphere, brilliant innovative food and the ever so charming Matt who cooks, takes time to explain... More

Our third time and all expectations were met. A very relaxed atmosphere with a frisson of promise as Matt explained the flavours in his food. A promise that was delivered with wild mushrooms, merguez and Iranian chicken. The chocolate torte was a sumptuous end to memorable meal. A perfect place to celebrate special moments. Thank you.
