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.

Went with four friends last Friday. Again, outstandingly good food in a wonderful atmosphere complete with the normal warm welcome from Matt. Our sophisticated London based friends were really impressed and commented that they would be hard pushed to find anything as good in the Smoke. Never mind finding something that is such good value for money. It is just... More

Everything! I was taken there for my birthday treat. A fixed price menu which satisfied all tastes. The quirky decore and the owners charm and wit, made the evening even more special.

Matts front room sets off a different type of restaraunt in the middle of town. Take your own wine beer whatever and enjoy the food thought up by a self taught chef with a laid back attitude.The food is different from the usual things you get in the normal restaraunts but it is extremely good. You can book the place,... More

Our third visit and the best so far. Starter options were delicate fancy fishcakes, girolles mushrooms with toast and merguez sausages - all excellent. Only one main course which is entirely reasonable given the size of the place. It was really very good indeed. Vietnamese pork belly cooked in caramel on a bed of baked rice with shredded greens. That... More

Matt is a charismatic host, eager to please and good fun. Food is good solid fair, we had mushrooms to start, Harissa chicken and a chocolate dessert..... We took a bottle or 4 and enjoyed a great evening....... Great atmosphere. It's like having dinner in your own house with lovely friends serving you......

I really felt that Matt was just cooking for us. He makes this restaurant a real pleasure to eat in. Main course was listed on his web site, so I thought I'd email the restaurant for a wine recommendation, which came back within an hour!!! (You bring your own wine, and pay £3 corkage, which I thought was fantastic. I... More
