What is Wilder?
Wilder is our surprise tasting menu restaurant situated on quirky Market Street. A night at Wilder starts at 7:30pm when everyone arrives for nibbles and drinks before we get started. The evening unfolds course by course with chef Matthew Beardshall creating a perfectly balanced mix of delicate, delicious flavour packed dishes.
The surprises come from locally forraged finds, the freshest sea food from the south coast and wonderfully local meat from our favourite butchers in the area. Senses are heightened by the suspense of not knowing what is coming next on your menu- don’t worry, we will give you a menu at the end so you haven’t got to remember it all!
We always like to check any dietary requirements and dislikes of our guests- we want all the surprises to be good ones- just make sure you tell us upon booking.
You can complete your experience by indulging in one of our wine flights (small glasses of paired wines)- choose from a 3 course (£25) or 5 course (£35) option and we will perfectly match your dishes to some exciting new and old world wines. Our suppliers work hard to source us some of the best wines around, finding interesting and unusual wines that make the perfect partner to Matthews dishes and enhancing your Wilder experience.
Eight course tasting menu £70
There is no menu, but eight surprise courses each with a delicate balance of flavours and colours and plenty of treats along the way. A matching wine flight completes the experience or choose a delicious glass of wine or cocktail from our drinks list.
