WOW! Absolutely stunning....

My fiancee and I visited Matt's Kitchen a couple weeks ago after reading such good reviews, we were not disappointed. Quaint, small restaurant with only a handful of tables. Its BYO drinks which is ideal (corkage fee applies). Food was divine. We shared Lamb for starter which was lovely, although... read more

As locals, we selfishly wish that Matt's Kitchen could be a well-kept secret known only to those of us fortunate enough to live in the area. However, we have to admit this wouldn't be good for Matt's bank balance so we will come clean and declare how impressed we were, yet again, by the delicious meal we had last week.... More

A first for me . The restaurant is small , rustic and very friendly . Matt greets you like an old friend coming for dinner . Three choices of starter and dessert , but only one main per day . The food was excellent . Clearly ...if you are a selective eater , you need to check the menu in... More

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!
