I will keep this concise. The whole evening was fantastic, and everything I expected. All three course were utterly divine, I only wished I could have tried all 4 starters, as they all sounded delicious. Now all I need is another excuse to go again! Although at less than £60 for a 3 course meal with coffee and wine for... More

First timers into Matt's Kitchen and thoroughly enjoyed our meal for two. very welcoming, great service and interesting and enjoyable food. For me the starters were the best bit, choice of four, I wanted all four! Main course was fixed, a spicy fish concoction. Now an admission - I must be the only diner in the UK who doesn't like...

It was okay, but service was somewhat slow bearing in mind it was a fixed menu.The food was good, but not outstanding. I would certainly think twice about going again.

I've just come back from one of the best meals I've had in ages. Matt's Kitchen has the perfect atmosphere and food that is to die for. Matt greeted us personaly and took our orders after having described each dish to us. I tried both the pork, pea and black pudding starter along with the wild mushroom starter. Both were... More

I'm going to step into unchartered territory here - if you feel you can't bear to read anything other than effusive praise for Matt's Kitchen, stop reading now. We had a table booked for quite some time and we were looking forward to a different dining experience. We expected the quaintness of the mismatched chairs and tables and found the... More

Boo! I’m sorry we didn’t live up to your expectations but thanks for commenting on on our flavoursome desserts, charming concept and my boundless enthusiasm. My style of cooking has been borne out of my tiny cooking environment, so slow, simple cooking is very much the order of the day. To complain about this is a little like having a... More

Matt's kitchen is a charming, intimate and welcoming little venue. We were greeted by Matt himself who is very friendly and talked us through the menu (which changes daily). The food was delicious and very reasonably priced (£5 for a starter and £12 for the main. We had smoked mackerel pate, middle eastern gazpacho and a fish mobile - all... More

Had the privilege of dining at Matt's kitchen last week and I have to say I wasn't disappointed! The food was some of the best I've ever tasted, so many wonderful flavours! The surroundings were quaint and beautiful, the service was so personal, with Matt himself taking orders from each party and describing the food with such great passion and... More

This place makes a good case for six stars from Tripadvisor, not five. Absolutely delicious food - every mouthful is a joy from this lovely menu. Superb service - relaxed, non intrusive, efficient, and friendly. Great atmosphere, which is fun and allows one to unwind. Very reasonably priced, including the corkage which is only £3 a bottle. I think I... More

I love to cook and entertain and am often disappointed when we eat out. Matt is a great cook and combines interesting flavours and excellent quality ingredients to provide some of the best food I've eaten. My husband would like slightly larger portions please!

We had a private dinner for 25 friends and family before my son's wedding. Matt served the most delicious meal of several starters that were simply out of the world - a gazpacho and truffle toasts amongst other starters. The main meal was so wonderful and the desserts were fabulous. everyone said that they had had the best time and... More
