Welcome to our Bistro in the heart of Canterbury


Leonora’s Kitchen is an independent, licensed restaurant with a warm and welcoming ambience. We produce a variety of fresh, Mediterranean Bistro dishes using locally sourced ingredients.

Leonora’s Kitchen benefits from an Open Kitchen where it’s possible to see the dishes of the day being freshly prepared. We have developed a great reputation locally for producing delicious freshly baked cakes and pastries to complement our bistro dishes.

We are proud of our range of coffees and teas. Our coffee comes from the Kent coffee company and features a highly recommended blend of freshly ground expresso coffee. Our leaf teas come from Taylor’s of Harrogate and the juices from the Luscombe’s range.

We use fresh, local ingredients, changing our menu seasonally to bring you new and tasty treats using the best fayre Kent has to offer

About Us

Leonora was my mother.

A warm welcoming person whose kitchen was always filled with the aromas of delicious home cooked food. Her home was a place where friends and relations would gather to catch up on the latest news sharing recipes and memories, worries and jokes.

My earliest memories are of standing on a stool to help her cook, listening to her telling stories of the Anglo-Indian community in which she grew up and learnt her gifts of cooking and hospitality. These are the gifts I hope to share with you at Leonora's Kitchen Bistro.
