We were greeted very well by the two charming female waitresses. They swiftly moved us to our table and took our drinks order. It was a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was about a quarter full but still very warm with a good atmosphere. There is a set menu of either two or three courses. For my starter I had... More

We had there our little wedding celebration last Tuesday. Amazing food, felt very welcome by staff and nothing was a problem (we had 3 little kids with us). Very happy we chose this place to have our wedding lunch there. I really like the interior too! There is a bit of a problem with parking, you can park only for... More

Have eaten out constantly in this past week, but oh my I certainly saved the best until last. This place is faultless. My friend and I came for lunch on Tuesday and we both left extremely impressed. The staff are superb. They strike the right balance between friendliness and efficiency, and I score them top marks for both. We had... More

I went to lunch with a friend today at kathton house. It was our first visit and we choose it as the menu looked promising on the website. When we arrived the staff were very welcoming and service was very efficient throughout the meal. I thoroughly recommend the monkfish main dish. Very tasty. They have a good choice of dishes...

Rather hard to find and parking even harder. Wonderful food, cooked perfectly, great service . But the whole place is sterile. White ceiling, white walls, white table cloths. Felt like eating in an Operating Theatre. No atmosphere at all

Excellent standard of food and service. Situated in a very quiet part of Sturry near Canterbury. Nicely decorated with a modern English menu this is one of the best places we've eaten at in this area.

This was our second visit to Kathton house, and there were 8 of us. Sophie makes a friendly and confident front of house, and our guests commented on how nice it was to have such young waiting staff. They were efficient but not intrusive as they kept our wine topped up during the meal and replenished the empty bottles. The... More

My last review of this restaurant praised it highly, however, I cannot say the same this time. Service was as usual very good and attentive and the ambience (based on decor only) was pleasant and easy on the eye as before. The notable difference this time was in the structure of the menu and the quality of the cooking. Both... More
