We weren't sure what to expect when we visited for the first time on Friday evening. We were in for a treat! The ambience of Matt's Kitchen, combined with his fabulous food and reasonable prices all contributed to a wonderful evening out with friends. I cannot commend it highly enough and I cannot wait to try his Lebanese Lamb. Like... More

We visited Matt's Kitchen on a Friday night and had quite one of the most enjoyable meals I've ever had. Every dish had a beautiful depth of flavour and Matt was a brilliant host, taking the time to stop and chat with each table in turn. Add to that extremely reasonable prices and warm, inviting surroundings and hopefully it should... More

Every course... More

Mr. Watson provides a charming, intimate and attractive ambience for the fine dining he supplies. Once again, a very reliable endroit for our picky DFL friends who are always made very welcome and well-fed here. Corkage is exercised, but a little pre-loading ,ay be enjoyed at the neighbouring Bruton Castle.

Nothing but praise for Matt, the staff, the venue and the food. All excellent. Can't remember exactly what we ate as it was over 3 months ago. However, all the guests remarked on the very high standard of cooking. Keep it up Matt
