Matthews Restoration was recommended to me by a friend. They have bought our dining table and chairs back to life. The work has completely transformed our furniture. A first class, quality job. I am also impressed that they travelled all the way from Newbury out to Surrey to collect.



I just wanted to say a massive thank you for restoring my chair so beautifully. You have done such a superb job and I am thrilled. I would be pleased to recommend your services to anyone. I shall definitely use you again if ever I have the need


Brian and his son Ben travelled a fair way to renovate and lighten our 1930's oak panelled room. Right from the start they were very approachable, friendly and professional, providing samples of what the wood would look like after treatment. They undertook the task as arranged and the finished room looks great particularly where they had matched some new panelling to the existing wood and had repaired areas of damage. I would not hesitate to use them again and recommend them for this type of work. Job well done and thanks.
