An award-winning foodie haven, St Clement’s showcases honest British cuisine, with a special focus on fish and seafood. As well as achieving a coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2012, praise comes courtesy of seafood expert, Rick Stein.

Offering a wholesome, honest selection of dishes weaved with quirky St Clement’s twists, favourites include Spanish fish stew with chick peas and chorizo, or baked scallops with lemongrass and chilli. Striving to source from local stocks and using simple, trusty cooking techniques, natural flavours shine through on the St Clement’s menu.

Creative and cleansing treats for desserts include elderflower jelly with summer fruits, or caramelised apricot tart. Testament to its mentions in The Good Food and Hardens guides, St Clement’s in St Leonards-on-Sea showcases a sensitively-compiled list of wines.

Enjoying a faithful foodie following, beautifully understated St Clement’s restaurant is an 8-minute walk from St Leonards Warrior Square Rail Station.

    Have dined here on numerous occasions. Food was excellent (as always.) Service here tends towards the friendly rather than highly polished (eg table not cleared of surplus cutlery; my companion had the fish stew but no-one brought her a spoon) but everything arrived promptly and the waitress had an engaging and cheerful manner. The restaurant was surprisingly empty which we put down to a combination of the weather and post-Xmas blues but, on this occasion, I could not describe the atmosphere as "lively". As usual we had only mineral water but on the occasions we have had wine I have found the card to be quite adequate and reasonably priced.

    My wife and I went to St Clements for our wedding anniversary lunch on New Years Eve. We had a really lovely dining experience. The staff were very attentive, noted that it was our anniversary and brought us a glass of bubbly on the house, which was a lovely surprise.

    The food was absolutely top drawer. The Italian fish stew was truly sublime. Wife had steak and stated it was the best she's ever had.

    We'll definitely go again although we tend to go somewhere different on our anniversaries. Maybe a birthday next time.

    We went to St Clement's for a celebratory dinner so we enjoyed a bottle of champagne and the Christmas menu. The chowder was particularly tasty. Service was pleasant and efficient. Great little restaurant, definitely the best in the area.

    The service and food was lovely. particularly the soup it was so tasty. just a bit disappointed that the specials had run out, however, saying that what we had was really good.

    Simply excellent throughout, from service to food and wine. Consistently good every time we've eaten here over the past 10 years. Thoroughly recommended.

    Just love St Clements. Welcoming staff, lovely neighbourhood location; good and relaxed ambience; but above all some great cooking with invention, style and panache.
