We ordered our meals and drinks and didn't have long to wait for the drinks and hot bread rolls to arrive. We... More

Not having visited Kathton House for over a year it was a delight to find that their menu, service and value for money had not diminished; indeed to the contrary. Four of us enjoyed the varied set lunch menu. Fixed price for 2 or 3 courses. The wine list is extensive and includes a full range of Chapel Down English... More

Nothing to add without reiterating the already glowing reviews, every time we take friends to this restaurant they leave happy and vowing to return, There is a change of menu every four weeks and you will have to book a minimum of a month in advance to get a table for a Saturday night, week nights are more readily available,...

Having had various meals here for special occasions, this really is the place to go and be spoilt. Food is amazing, staff very friendly and make you feel very welcome, not stuffy and full of themselves. I recommend anyone to try this out, it's so worth the money.

Superb place. All three courses were delicious. Perfect place for our anniversary treat. A friend recommended the place to me. I had never heard of it before, but I shall be recommending to other in future. What a find. The mushroom sauce on the filet steak was to die for. As was the tempura cauliflower that can with the vegetables.... More
