From wild garlic hummus to rhubarb clafoutis via aromatic Thai chicken, Matt's kitchen never fails to excite your taste buds... Thank you Matt for yet another delightful dinner!

Our first supper here was in March. We haven't had the chance to go back yet but will definitely do soon. My partner was sceptical (and scared!) when I told him I'd booked to eat in someone's front room with only one choice of main. He absolutely loved it. He often mentions how much he enjoyed it some 8 weeks... More

This is the first time we've been to Matts Kitchen and it certainly won't be the last! There is a choice of 3 starters and 3 deserts and a set main course. I have to say that I think this was some of the best cooking I've ever had. I had the wild mushroom starter which was delicious. The restaurant... More

Quirky, unusual, friendly, delicious, interesting. Need I go on? One of the most interesting places to eat in the West Country!

My husband and I were lucky enough to secure a last minute booking at Matt's kitchen a couple of weeks ago, and we have only good things to say about the whole experience. Firstly, the food was fabulous and there was plenty of it! We had the lamb and mushroom starters respectively and they were both out of this world.... More

Totally unique and a welcome break from the norm! Excellent and very personal service. Brilliant food and tailored to us - we were totally spoilt and the taste and quantity was well balanced. Can't wait to come back - keep up the good work Matt.

We had a fabulous night. I started with wild mushrooms which were laced with truffle oil and zinging with flavour. Our main was a deeply flavoured chicken - such a rich intense flavour. Desert was the ever fantastic chocolate torte. Matt always creates a memorable night. Make a booking and prepare to have your taste buds delighted.

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
