Probably one of the best, if not the best, restaurant in and around Canterbury. And probably East Kent, or maybe Kent! The food is excellent, the service is friendly, attentive and polite. Lovely atmosphere too. It's not cheap but worth every penny.

Our first visit to kathton House was for our wedding anniversary on the 27th of March and we had the best dinner of all the restaurants we had been to, so for my 60th birthday I knew that Kathton House is the only place I'd like to go to celebrate with my family. We were so welcomed, the table looked... More

My boyfriend and I live in London and we wanted to take my parents out for dinner - they live in Deal - and wanted to try somewhere new, where they hadn't heard of before. Found this absolute GEM by searching on Trip Advisor and my god, we were WOWED! Every little thing was done to perfection, from the fabulous... More

Probably some of the best food I have ever had, homely atmosphere, and accommodating staff! I'm vegan. When visiting non-vegan restaurants, I usually need to ring to make sure they have food for me. Even then I often end up with risotto or pasta. Our visit to Kathton House was spontaneous. In spite of it, a lovely waitress, after a... More

Accidently ended up reviewing this with 1 star - slight computer error. This restaurant is fantastic. Visited on 27 September 2014 for a birthday celebration. Food was beautiful and service impeccable as always. Can't wait for my next visit.

The location is a bit tricky and the food bill a little more than I would usually pay, but very good food and very attentive staff, not one for the children I would say.

There is no question that this is THE best restaurant in the Canterbury area. We recently hosted our silver wedding lunch for 34 friends there and it was as good as ever. In fact, it was difficult to stop our guests talking about what a special place it is and what divine food they offer. Gina and Jill and the... More

It's a bit like stepping back in time in Kathton House but the cooking is current and delicious. The service is super- efficient, not many places top up your wine glasses nowadays. I particularly like that the generous cheese board is accompanied by tasting notes.

Fantastic meal, lovely setting great staff & service, Kathton House is a hidden gem in Sturry, Canterbury, would highly recommend. The venison was delicious along with the dauphinoise potatoes, followed by a beautiful buttermilk panna cotta with spiced figs, there was nothing at all to find fault in, looking forward to coming back sometime soon.
