SquareMeal Review of Kathton House

Some say that Kathton House is the “perfect family-run restaurant” – a labour of love overseen by Ritz-trained chef Neil Evans and his wife Gina. Occupying a trim Grade II-listed building in a village not far from Canterbury, the dining room is picture-pretty with its pastel walls, drapes, abstract artworks and neatly laid tables – a soothing backdrop for Neil’s contemporary Euro-accented cuisine. Fixed-price menus offer excellent value for the likes of home-cured beef fillet with horseradish mousse and beetroot salad, loin of venison in port and shallot jus or pan-fried suprême of wild sea bass with tomato, olives and pilaf rice. Desserts are also in the classic mould – think tarte Tatin with apple and Calvados ice cream or coffee pannacotta with raspberries. “Superb service” is much appreciated and there’s an inviting guest room upstairs for those who want to make a night of it.
