“Amazing anniversary dinner”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

Kathton House is an amazing restaurant. If you're looking for a restaurant for a special occasion then this is the best place I've found so far. We went for our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed! Most people probably wouldn't expect to find such a high end restaurant in Sturry but it really is worth the trip. Having been to the Abode in Canterbury and Reed's in Faversham, I would chose to come back to Kathton House over those two. The food is fantastic, but what's really special is the service you get, worth every penny. Can't wait for another special occasion to go back!

“A starry Sturry night!”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

This is a quality restaurant. I cannot fault it. The food is of the highest standard and would not be out of place in Mayfair. Instead its to be found in a small village outside Canterbury. Nevertheless it is always very popular.

“A delightful restaurant in an unexpected location”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

A friend recommended Kathton House to us as we were looking for a venue for a celebration lunch party. We visited in March and were very impressed by the food and service. When we discussed our ideas for the party we had no hesitation in booking the restaurant there and then without looking at alternatives.

Then in July we had lunch there for 34 of us. We had told everyone how good it was and then wondered if it would be as good for such a large group. We should not have worried. The food was both excellent and consistent and the service equally so – attentive, but not intrusive. We have had so many compliments from our friends about the restaurant and not one voice with any criticism.

They catered perfectly for food intolerances and fussy eaters alike. The house wines were excellent and well priced.

A delightful restaurant in an unexpected location.
