Fantastic service and food. Called up a few hours before visit as I needed gluten free, vegetarian food. Not only did they accommodate my needs, they even provided delicious gluten free rolls at the start so I wasn't left out when the other people in the table had theirs. This was my 3rd visit and we will definitely be back... More

We are a group of eleven who meet every few weeks for Sunday lunch. As Kathton House does not open on a Sunday we booked for Saturday. Although its address is High Street the restaurant is on a quiet one way street with restricted parking. We arrived with plenty of time to spare and we were met and welcomed by... More

I have just had a very nice lunch at Kathton House. Very friendly and unassuming with good, freshly cooked food and an extensive variety of wine by the glass. The dinner menu looked good too. Will definitely return.

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

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
