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.

My wife and I have just got back from eating at the Landgate Bistro and we had a lovely romantic meal. My wife had the potted rabbit and Dover sole and I had the salt cod and chilli fishcakes and turbot. Everything was cooked to perfection and the staff were attentive without being obtrusive. There was an extensive choice of... More

Had supper last night and once again, a superb meal, from the friendly welcome on arrival to the home made blackberry pastilles at end. We had wild mushrooms on toast followed by venison, both from nearby Beckley woods, and leek and Roquefort tart, which was so light and delicious, followed by guinea fowl, in a bacon and red wine jus,...

Varied menu with a set menu on the day of our visit. Service was excellent. Food was both creative and delicious particularly the venison main course I had. Highly recommended.
