“One more positive vote for this gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

My wife and I have a good friend in Sturry who lives a short walk away and is a regular customer at this restaurant - a lucky lady indeed! We had heard good things about it over the past year or so and finally got to eat lunch there with our friend today.

The food was outstanding and we thought it was reasonably priced given the quality. Wines are excellent and the service faultless. Our friend has invited us to go back for an evening meal and overnight stay - we can't wait!

“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

We came for a birthday and the first visit for the birthday boy too. Much had been said and a lot promised having had some of the very best evenings here.

As ever it did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived and coats were taken the staff made us feel like Royalty. The food was exceptional as ever and some pretty amazing wine too.

We had a great evening that really made it a special birthday. If this place was in central London they could double the prices and with the service and quality, no one would bat an eye.

“Never fails to please”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We went on the anniversary of when we first started dating in 1969 and as always everything about the experience at Kathton House was first class. It is not the cheapest place to eat but worth every penny for the overall experience of excellent food, excellent service and wonderful atmosphere

“Last minute anniversary meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We booked a table here last minute on a weekday for our anniversary. From booking to departure the service was very welcoming. Lovely food and a reasonably priced wine list. It's just a shame that we had no room for desert!
