Who are we?

Jerk n’ Tingz was founded by Matthew Bare in 2018 and started off as a Caribbean frozen food delivery service in Kent but his ambition soon led him to Dover. Seeing that there was not much around offering authentic Jerk and Caribbean cuisine locally he set his sights on opening a restaurant. That’s when Jerk n’ Tingz really arrived!


Matthew the Chef and Proprietor, trained at Westminster Kings College, and spent his time honing his craft in establishments in London, New York and Japan including The Savoy and The Royal Mandarin Oriental. His passion for food is easy to see especially with the recipes from his home- Jamaica. Matthew has always had ambition to create a restaurant that brings people together and provides delicious, accessible but visually pleasing food.


Open for dinner (5pm-9.30pm) Jerk n’ Tingz is both an eat-in establishment and also provides a take away service to enjoy from the comfort of your home too. Both have proved popular within the local community.
