I heard about the Landgate through word of mouth. It was my birthday on the 20,Nov and decided to spend the weekend in Rye and visit the Landgate with two friends. Loved the location, with the castle gates at the top of the road adding to the romance of the quaint houses with very small doors. Once in we were... More

my husband and I had a lovely romantic evening at Landgate Bistro to celebrate. The staff were warm and friendly so we immediately felt welcome and we were given a nice seat in the window. The food selection was minimal but all sounded delicious so it was difficult to choose. We ended up going for the special 'wild boar week'... More

A small group of friends and I dined at the bistro yesterday after our long day trip in Rye. We thankfully booked the first evening slot in advance as the restaurant was getting quite busy from around 7:30pm. The staff was attentive, cordial and down to earth. I ordered the leek&roquefort tart as a starter and the lamb as a... More

My last visit in May of this year was slightly disappointing, but my daughter and I had a fabulous meal here on Saturday evening. The quality of the food was excellent and the service very good. The restaurant was full too, which improves the ambience (particularly in the Landgate Bistro, where it can be lacking). We had starters of leek... More

I went to rye this weekend as I wanted to explore places outside dazzling London. However, I found this lovely romantic place when I was walking down the streets of Rye. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff was extremely helpful and the atmosphere made me feel very special. This is definitely a place to go for dinner... More

Saturday night and full. Good choice on menu. Dover sole excellent as was the Local Kentish lamb dish and fresh breads. Service OK but a little more training on the wine list would help. Staff knowledge and advice would help here. Pleasant bistro which deserves to do well

We returned to the Landgate Bistro this weekend past and had yet another lovely meal. Venison carpaccio, cured sea bass with blinis and then we both had the brilliant Lamb cooked 4 ways which includes a lovely mini-Lancashire hotpot. Food and wine superb as always and the fantastic Maitre D (sorry I forgot your name) charming as ever. She is... More

After a week of touring Kent we finished in Rye on the Friday and were delighted we had booked the Landgate. Friendly helpfull staff, a nice buzz in the restaurant which certainly looked full just after 8.00pm. We both started with the home cured Sea Bass which was beautifully presented and quite delicious. Considering the restaurant was busy the food... More

A group of us visited the Landgate Bistro for the first time after a gap of several years. The quality of the food is excellent and served at reasonable intervals between the courses - not too rushed but no long waits. The price of items on the menu are reasonable, but their wine list is rather expensive, with the cheapest... More

Excellent food served by attentive and friendly staff in a small and intimate location. Above the standard of the other places we ate at during a few days stay in Rye.
