Faultless food!

We arrived as it opened for our table reservation at 1830 on a Saturday and were not disappointed. The service was attentive, even as the restaurant started to fill up. If anything the first two courses were brought to the table a little too quickly but then we were first in line. The marsh... read more

Fortunately we booked a table a few days before going away to Rye as arriving on a Saturday we thought it would be busy. Whilst we were there every table was taken, despite this and only two waiting staff we were served promptly and very efficiently, nor was there a long wait for the food to arrive. The food was...

On a quiet Wednesday evening, we enjoyed a delicious meal with expert guidance from our server about the local sourcing and preparation of high quality produce. The saltmarsh lamb was a melt in mouth masterpiece comprised of prime cuts, crusted sweetbreads and a pot of braised neck. The Landgate's own Sloe and Quince Gins with a selection from an extensive... More

Four of us holidaying in the area decided to try the Landgate Bistro for our final night as I had been there with my daughter a couple of years ago and enjoyed the experience greatly. The service and food had been excellent then and we were delighted to discover that they are still exceptional. There was a good menu choice... More

We visited the Landgate Bistro yet again for their 5 course tasting menu on Friday. On the whole the dishes were, individually, very good but the whole 5 courses and three amuse bouches were just a little too much. My wife had a real problem completing the dishes though I soldiered on but also found it all a bit much.... More

We visited this weekend to celebrate my Mother-in-laws 60th Birthday. The food was delicious and the service was very good too. I would recommend choosing from the cheese menu for dessert, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Clean and simple decor throughout with a sophisticated ambiance.

I was slightly concerned when I saw the limited menu but was assured this would mean freshly cooked food. I had the most delicious rib of beef and my starter and desserts were great too. Definitely recommend and don't be put off by the limited choice it's all delicious!!

Small restaurant, simply stated creating an honest and friendly venue. The menu makes use of local produce both from the land and the sea. The presentation of the food is imaginative and inviting. The actual cooking left nothing to be desired.

This was a real find: very good service, excellent food and wines. On weekdays the set menus offer value for money with no diminution of quality.
