An excellent place to eat if you enjoy good food and don't mind paying a reasonable price for it.You never feel rushed and are made to feel very welcome. Service is very good too.

Hubby wanted to take me somewhere that we hadn't been before for my birthday and we were not disappointed. As everyone else says the staff are amazing they were spot on being there at the right moment to top up a glass or to clear plates. The extra treats at the table with the sorbet (lime and pineapple) and the... More

The food and service in this intimate restaurant were excellent and it is highly recommended. The little touches like the "mini-courses", make it stand out. A good place to visit for a special occasion.

Six of us went to Kathton House to celebrate two birthdays, we hadn't been before and it was a great dining experience. My husband and I who had come by train (this is right by Sturry Train Station) arrived early and were disappointed to see the pub up the road was closed so ventured into the restaurant 30 minutes early...

This is a perfect venue for all celebrations and enjoying the wonderful seasonal food! The menu has changed each time we have visited and is always very interesting. The service is brilliant and not too pushy or rushed. It's lovely to have a nice restaurant in Sturry, which stands out from the rest of the pub options available.

We went there today for our anniversary meal (as we do every year) and the food and service were perfect. We really cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Firstly, I should say that this is a nicely decorated, modern restaurant with staff who are very professional & friendly. We managed to park outside, but as there were only 8 of us in the restaurant, it might not be so easy on busier evenings. After reading all the reviews, maybe my expectations were too high, but I felt that... More

Had a very pleasant lunch here at the end of May - The two ladies serving were attentive and jovial, and the venue was pleasing on the eye - All the food was delicious and the portion size was sensible - It is definitely worth battling through the Sturry Road traffic to get here! - Will be returning soon!

We went to Kathton House with 4 friends last Saturday and had such a beautiful experience. The menu was as varied and imaginative as ever, with so much that appealed it was hard to choose. The glazed smoked salmon was such a delicious dish, perfectly balanced and led so delightfully on to the calves liver with champ - simple and... More
