We had lunch , 4 adults and 2 todlers, the welcome , service , and food could not have been better. Each dish was delicious, certainly up to the standard or better than some the London foodie restaurants. Would love to come back.

A family group of ten, we had a superb meal here. We particularly enjoyed the spicy squid starter and the heavenly guinea fowl - very reasonably priced as part of the set menu. The desserts were scrumptious. The staff looked after us very well - efficient and helpful but unobtrusive. I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates really excellent... More

We were lucky to eat at the Landgate Bistro on our one night in Rye, and Rye is lucky to have the Landgate Bistro. Excellent service and a well thought-out menu offering locally sourced dishes. And an added bonus: their own quince gin. Delicious.

Himself and I both had the scallops which were very fine indeed. I had the lemon sole fillets - there was whole Dover sole on offer, but I can't be bothered with bones. It was pretty well perfect. Himself had 3 or 4 different bits of marsh lamb all cooked in different ways. He said it was one of the... More

I'm probably biased as this is my favourite restaurant in Rye for both menu and service and I visit a lot. Indeed, I even booked the Bistro for a significant birthday celebration taking over the whole room. The menu is small but exceedingly accomplished and I don't think I've ever had a bad dish here. This time round I enjoyed... More

We went here for Sunday lunch. Good menu sourced from local seafood and lamb. All the food is very good and the service was very capable.

We visited on a week night and the restaurant was fairly busy. The menu was quite inventive and the food was very good. The only negatives were that we weren't offered an aperitif and that the wine list was quite brief. Service was pleasant and efficient and I can recommend dining here.

Great menu with locally sourced produce. By far the best restaurant in the area. The leek and Roquefort tart was perfect and the lamb was full of flavour. Really relaxed atmosphere and the service was very friendly. Highly recommended.

We didn't intend to have dinner in Rye so found ourselves asking if they minded us just having a starter at a peak time on s Saturday night. We were welcomed without a booking. We found the menu so interesting and inviting that both my wife and I without discussion decided to have mains too. I had spice crusted squid... More

Simply wonderful cuisine. The staff were friendly and attentive without being in your face. They bake all their own bread daily and it really shows!
