welcome to Skewer House Taunton.

This Restaurant is run by myself and my Partner.

We serve "espetadas" traditional Madeiran skewers.


Our family is from the island of Madeira.

A small Portuguese island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

This restaurant is our slice of Madeira in Taunton.

Mum has run her Restaurant 'o'picado' since 2003 back in Essex.

Mums restaurant serves a varied range of Portuguese dishes.

Espetada quickly became a customer favourite.

following 'o'picados' success mum opened a Skewer house in Rochford in Essex.

We moved to Somerset in 2014. quickly realising that somerset could benefit from some Portuguese flavour.

We found the perfect building in Taunton and set out creating this amazing space.

we wanted the space to be reminiscent of a traditional "Casa Das Espetada: a skewer house"

we sourced wood from the quantocks and made the tables.

we sourced the crockery from Madeira.

the church pews from Bridgwater.

focusing on every detail to transform the building into what it is now.

we opened our doors in 2016.

we have slowly become one fo the best restaurants in taunton.

with a reputation that we are extremely proud of.


Following our success, instead of adding more to our menu, we decided to 

simplify our menu and create a new Restaurant alongside our sister "Sofia"

with Sofia's help we created "Nobregas Tapas & Paella" you can find that five minutes up the 

road at 14 bath place Taunton.

what is an Espetada? 

where is Madeira?
