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.

Had a truely delightful meal at Kathton - I had forgotten how superb the food is there and the surroundings comfortable and relaxing! The home made rolls were a very welcomed start and the intermediate courses were just right!The baked goats cheese was just exquisite and the beef fillet was mouth melting and cooked to absolute perfection. A menu of... More

Went here for a lovely dinner for two in this quaint restaurant - it was a hidden gem!! The food was fantastic and the staff went out of their way to make our meal as pleasant and relaxed as possible including warm homemade bread and a complimentary appetiser to start. Couldn't speak higher of the service or the food.

Myself and my partner had a lovely meal at Kathton House on Wednesday for my birthday, the service every time we have been is friendly and warm which I think can be quite rare for a restaurant of this caliber nowadays! The crab salad appetizer was exceptional to the venison for the main with potato dauphinoise... I have been dreaming... More

My Wife and I had a great meal on the 27th. Pricey, but worth every penny. The wine was very reasonably priced as were all drinks. Waitresses , very attentive, and the appetiser and sorbets before the meal and between courses were quite something. We booked for valentines at the end of the meal, and we can't wait to return....

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant in little-known Sturry. The service was absolutely wonderful, the atmosphere great and the food excellent. We had the 'Home Cured Salmon Gravadlax with Beetroot Mousse and Horseradish Dressing' and the 'Rosemary Grilled Goats Cheese on Bruschetta with Apricot Relish and Pistachio Oil' for starters but also received two types of perfectly home-baked...
