It was a special occasion my mother was 80, it was a special place,as it was my parents house in the 1960`s,so where else could we go for a family meal? Although it was a Saturday Matt agreed to open up we had such a lovely evening, food was fantastic, great service,& a great atmosphere with... read more

... for the Friday evening we wanted to come, which was a tad frustrating, given his website says they happen only on Saturdays! But he still took time to deal with my request and was clearly so enthusiastic about what his Kitchen offers that it's still down on our list to visit - even 'tho we'll have to organise our... More

Really sorry we weren't able to feed you this time! Saturdays are for private functions only but people can still book a private function on any night we're open. The wedding party we had in on the night you wanted to come had booked it last year, not that you'll need such forward planning! Look forward to feeding you soon.... More

Amazingly good restaurant in the highly acclaimed town of Bruton. An excellent meal beautifully presented in charming restaurant that feels warm and welcoming. Set menu. You need to book in advance to avoid disappointment as it was very busy. The ideal location to book the entire space for a celebration.

We moved into the area a few months back and quickly became aware of the reputation of Matt's Kitchen in Bruton. Regrettably it took us too long to visit. A mistake we won't repeat. Even when we did finally call to book, it was already Wednesday and there were no tables available. However, Matt took pity on us, was very... More

This was our first visit to Matts Kitchen, certainly won't be our last! A charming chap who described each dish in mouthwatering detail and obviously loves what he does. A choice of started and dessert, One main dish which changes every evening he is open, depending on season and availability. Fine dining without the cost. Love it, thanks Matt. See... More

Matt is a magician. His actual kitchen is so small that he must surely be conjuring, rather than cooking, those culinary delights. His modest (newly decorated) living room, which is where you eat, makes you feel like you're dining in ancient France, or is it Morocco. Beware the man himself - he's a food whisperer. I defy you not to... More

Matt's Kitchen is actually the front of his house and probably has about 20 covers. All dietary needs are catered for, just email or contact in advance with likes/dislikes. There is a selection of starters but only one main course and then a selection of puddings. All good, bring your own wine, cash only, highly recommended.

Thanks Matt for an exceptional dinner last Thursday. A truly smashing evening with lots of wonderful food, and even a specially made risotto for our vegetarian friend.

The food at Matt's Kitchen is delicious and I love the fact it is so different from pub meals and regular restaurant food. This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. Matt is always so friendly and you now that the food is prepared with love and care. I will be BACK!!
