Such a fun restaurant. Matt's cooking is delicious. The staff are so helpful. It's bring your own wine. What's not to like??! There were 13 of us celebrating a double birthday. Can't recommend highly enough.

A short notice booking to take up a cancellation. I had been waiting months for a suitable cancellation to come along (based on checking the menus each week and comparing them with our appetites!). We were not disappointed. Salted haddock starter was the highlight for me (and, with some more accompaniments, would have been a wonderful meal in its own... More

A very lovely experience start to finish - from the email booking to the goodbye as we left. Without setting standards impossibly high for Matt and his small team, I can't see how you'd be disappointed! You're welcome in his home and he treats his guests to the best of his skills - delicious and very well executed dishes. Oxcheek,... More

We dined a while ago and the food was amazing, my parter is a chef (so very fussy with food quality) and he was raving about it for weeks after. Well done Matt!

Have been trying to get a table for a while, well worth the wait. Great meal, spicy chicken, followed by braised beef brisket and bread and butter pudding all cooked beautifully, portions are a perfect size, so you can manage the 3 courses Matt came out and introduced himself, and explained about the various dishes on offer, nice touch was...

Great food atmosphere and chef. Take your own drink is great so everyone has what they want and Matt can concentrate on the most delicious food.

Loved this quirky little, BYO, restaurant - the food and the welcome was amazing. My wife is veggie and she felt like she had a really well thought out, substantial vegetarian meal (unlike some places which throw the same old thing together, that you could very probably make at home). A lot of skill, love and thought went into both... More

Each time we visit Matt's Kitchen it never fails to impress. Everyone of the eight of us thoroughly enjoyed starter, main course and dessert. Exquisite is the word that springs to mind with the combination of flavours and textures Matt produces with such enthusiasm. All this wrapped up in a beautifully lit, fire going, cosy room. When can we go... More
