I have visited Kathton House a number of times with my wife and friends. The food has always been excellent and the service friendly and attentive. I might have been more often but you need to book early as they get booked up very quickly! The only thing that I might change would be to turn the lighting down a... More

I took my friend there today for his 50th birthday surprise. The food was cooked to perfection. The tasty pea and mint soup was so superb and the beef and lamb were so tender, moist and flavoursome. The desserts were... More

Amazing restaurant from start to finish. Highly recommend this restaurant, I don't know how anyone could leave anything but an excellent review. Wonderful staff very attentive but not overbearing. For the standard of food very reasonably priced. A hidden gem will definitely return

This restaurant is really superb, the quality of the food and the presentation is second to none. My friends took me there on 31st Dec for lunch as it was my birthday. From the moment we arrived to when we left the staff were attentive, yet not obtrusive. The presentation of the food was only equalled by its quality. I... More

This in my view is the best restaurant I have ever eaten in , the food was superb the service brilliant and to think it's only 15 minutes from my home. I am really impressed I have eaten all over the world and this is my first ever review that is a measure of how good Kathton house is.

Excellent service and food, we will return. The menu was vernier and the chef catered for one of our group who is lactose intolerant
