Everything was very good and very professional in a very relaxed manner. The food, the service and the venue was just outstanding. Highly recommended.

A nice quiet restaurant for that special meal. Not your run of the mill establishment but a premises with good food and service. Well worth a visit.

We'd never come across this place but it was suggested by friends. It's hardly auspicious - Sturry's High Street is a bit of a non-event and the photo on Google doesn't do it any favours. However, once inside the service is friendly and the room bright and modern. Great wine list and a small well thought-out menu. Great cooking and... More

We are in Canterbury for a few days and I wanted a special place to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were not disappointed. Having alerted them a few days in advance that it was his birthday, they made up a table with colorful "Happy Birthday" confetti sprinkled in the table. A very nice start to what was one of our...

Contacted Kathton House to book a table for our anniversary (46th) which was on Monday 8th August but they close on Sunday and Monday. Mentioned it was our anniversary on Monday but would come to celebrate it on Tuesday instead. When we arrived we had a lovely table by the courtyard door and the table was sprinkled with anniversary decorations,... More

We often go to this wonderful little place... the food can not be faulted, nor the service. It is almost our default setting after trying different places to eat.. This family run restaurant takes the care and service for the diner to a whole new level .. they will tweak the menu to suit, going out of their way to... More

We visited Kathton House last night to celebrate an anniversary, and the food and staff certainly didn't disappoint. The food was absolutely exquisite with such attention to detail. Being a vegetarian eating out is always a bit laborious, as the options are never that great. Kathton House go all out in this respect, the scotch quales eggs with lentils and... More
