We've visited twice since outdoors dining returned. On both occasions we've enjoyed a lovely time. We have eaten here on a regular basis previously, but obviously only very rarely over Covid. Booking over phone straightforward and helpful. Friendly welcome on both occasions by owner, James....Food continues to be fresh, delicious and cooked beautifully. Lovely meals (as usual) on both occasions. Safe and excellent service from all staff (you can see their smiles by their eyes, though obviously appropriately masked). Lisa is her usual very friendly and very helpful self, and recalled our usual orders ! Holly also served us, on both occasions with excellent and very friendly service. All staff very well trained , and really good in all departments, including a very new member of staff, Amber - her 1st day today !. It continues to be our favourite local place to eat out, for the best of reasons - great food, great service.More

So lucky to have this restaurant as our local. The food, service and cognisance of Covid restrictions made our (wife and I) venture back to dining out an absolute delight, knowing we could enjoy the whole experience safely.

I was so excited to stop in Matt’s on a day out with my mum and sister and it did not disappoint!! I had the prawn curry and it was absolutely delicious. We were served by James who was really lovely and made our experience...all the better. We would have stayed all day if we could and will definitely be back!More

Was disappointed with our meal . Have been going to this venue for several years and usually have the Chicken Supreme. This was always amazing, but of late, quite dry, with stuffing . Used to have a creamy mushroom sauce to die for. No separate...vegetables served just tepid broccoli under cooked . Potatoes were well cooked and tasty . Vegetables in short supply. Such a shame because the staff are lovely- very welcoming and friendlyMore

Recently visited Matt the Treashers with 3 others for a birthday meal. The food was so fresh and tasty. I had the sirloin steak and it was by far the best steak I have had in recent years, cooked to perfection. The value was amazing...too for the amount we had. Cannot wait to get back here soon.More

There is a car park that they lock at night so would think the answer is yes! Suggest call them...
