Sir Roger Denis Moate (born 12 May 1938) was a Conservative politician in the United Kingdom.

Moate was educated at Latymer Upper School, Hammersmith and was an insurance broker. He first stood for Parliament for the Faversham constituency at the 1966 general election, losing to Labour's Terence Boston. When the Redcliffe-Maud Report was campaigned against by rural district councils Swale R.D.C. was forced to opt out of the campaign due to the similarity of "R.E. Mote" with its then-prospective candidate R. D. Moate. By coincidence, Moate had moved the motion opposing Redcliffe-Maud at the Conservative Party conference. He was elected Member of Parliament in 1970 general election, and served as MP until 1997. He was a member of the select committee on Agriculture from 1995 to 1997.

At the 1997 election, the Faversham constituency was split to form Faversham and Mid Kent and Sittingbourne and Sheppey. Moate contested the latter seat, but lost to the Labour candidate, Derek Wyatt.

Moate was knighted in 1993. He lives in Newnham, near Sittingbourne and has three children.
