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

We have been coming to Matt's kitchen over the years since he opened and can honestly say we have never been disappointed. Yet again our meal on Wednesday night was exquisite - the spicy pork and salt cod starters were divine and the lamb was simply mouthwatering. Matt is always charming and wonderfully enthusiastic and the girls who serve are... More

For some reason, even tho we live locally we had never managed to organise our selves to go to Matt's Kitchen. Friends had raved about it, and rightly so! It took my daughter and son in law's birthday gift of a voucher for us both to get our act together and book our table! We ate there last evening with... More

There was a choice of starter which we found very tasty. The main meal was one choice,Chicken and again very tasty. Matt explained when booking that he excepts cash only and a bring... More

One word: WOW. We booked out the entire restaurant for a private dinner for 14 ladies visiting Bruton for Hauser & Wirth Somerset on Saturday night and just had THE most wonderful time. The house was beautiful, the table was absolutely gorgeously laid, the food was exquisite and Matt was totally charming. We couldn't have asked for a better evening.... More

This is one of those place you don't want to tell people about - because you'll never get a booking again. Matt is so totally charming and along with his wonderful girls, I have just got to say a huge thank you. Unlike almost any other restaurant you have every been too, this is more like being a guest at... More
