This is by far the best restaurant in Canterbury. We eat here often and are always very happy with our meal and service. The lunch menu is £20 for two courses and £25 for three courses which is very reasonable for the quality of the meals served. We have tried elsewhere in this area but keep going back to Kathton...

I don't mean 'retro' as a criticism here but the attentive service and beautifully laid tables seemed from a bygone era! Great bread, beautiful lunch and annotated cheese board....perfect.

Really great food, well cooked, not overly complicated/simply tasty, well presented, Michelin star quality in my opinion. Excellent value, very much in the medium price range. Friendly service. What's not to like!

We have just had a wonderful lunch at this really very special restaurant.We ate from the set lunch menu,succulent guinea fowl,perfectly cooked.What makes this restaurant stand out (and stand alone) is a magical combination of charming family service together with classic dishes simply cooked and beautifully presented.I cook for a living,classically trained and haven't eaten anywhere that comes close to...

Over the last five years I have eaten here on various occasions either for lunch or dinner and I have always had wonderfully prepared food and consistently pleasant and attentive service. The wine is sensibly priced as is the food. My favourite restaurant, it's just a shame it's not closer to home.

This is our favourite restaurant to experience a very special treat. The food is cooked to perfection. We particularly like the food is seasonal & locally sourced. Love the little touches of the appetisers & sorbet. The wine choice is excellent. The staff are very friendly & attentive.

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.
