We had a good evening with a group of friends. Set menu was tasty, interesting canapes, nice chicken dish as a main and then a choice of puddings including a great bread and butter pudding. Enjoyable!

Believe the hype and previous reviews. The food he produces is top draw and is enhanced by the setting and his hosting prowess. The food is fresh and flavoursome; a finer dining experience would be hard to find.

This is a tiny one-room restaurant and it really feels like you are dining in a friend's house - intimate and cosy. The host/chef is very relaxed and relaxing and chats to everyone to make sure they have had a good time. We certainly did. All the food was very well cooked, although, if all four of us had one...

I'm a fussy so-and-so so have been waiting a while for the fixed menu to match my taste. Well worth the wait! Super friendly staff add to the experience.

Been meaning to go here for ages, so glad I finally made it. Matt was very helpful and accommodated gluten free and vegetarian requests happily. The food was truly delicious, every single course. I urge you to pick up the phone and make a booking, you won't be dissapointed. Matt is an excellent host, warm friendly and an outstanding chef... More

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.
