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...

Great food in Sturry, near Canterbury. If you wanted to stay the night, after a great meal, the restaurant had a small room, situated in a great garden, for rent.

We did not think it could get any better than the... More

Visited for our anniversary and was not disappointed. The ambience and service was excellent, and the food we had was delicious. On arrival I was slightly disappointed to find only one vegetarian option on the menu so had very little choice and it did not appear to be particularly special to warrant the price (It is expensive to eat here)....

My sister goes here quite often and is a celiac. They cater for her needs without any fuss. My meal was superb and I am glad she took me there on my visit to Canterburyi

We were given a gift voucher for a special occasion which included accommodation in the restaurant's small letting room. The meal was lovely with excellent service, we weren't rushed at all and the food was fantastic. Carpaccio of beef, roast lamb rack and a delicious selection of cheese and biscuits. Combined with a good and reasonable wine list, we couldn't... More

My husband and I have dined at Kathton House on a number of occasions and have never found one single negative to say about it. My most recent experience was for my Pre-Wedding Meal with friends (a group of 8 ladies, most aged over 40), some of whom have dined here before. The food and service were of the usual... More

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.
