I visited Kathon House with two friends and we were all amazed by the standard of food. Every course was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection; this was one of the best meals I have ever had in a restaurant. The staff were absolutely lovely and so friendly without being intrusive, two members of our party turned up early and... More

By far and away the best dining experience we have had in 6 years living in Kent. Surpasses on all fronts with superb food, a wide selection of wines (at sensible prices) and service that preempts your needs and leaves you feeling very special and cared for. Could go on forever, so will leave it that you should try it.

Our first visit to Kathton House and what a treat !!! First class service, mouth watering dishes and English wine on the wine list. Could not ask for more. Thank you for a lovely afternoon. Can't wait to come back for an evening meal.

This was our first visit and we had a wonderful time. The food, staff and ambiance were excellent. Will definitely go back even though parking was a bit of a problem. We later found out they have a few parking spaces at a nearby car wash (worth asking about this when you book).

Lovely little restaurant which I would go back to without hesitation. *** note to owners - please refurbish the exterior menu holder and change the stained blinds they do not do any justice (interior is very nice) to your excellent eatery - and must be offputting to people who have not partaken of you warm hospitality and your wonderful food....

We went here for a friends birthday and had heard good things about the restaurant. We found the staff very attentive without being in your face, nothing seemed too much trouble. The food menu was small but good choices which were beautifully presented. In between the courses we were served mini courses which was a lovely touch. I had the... More
