Absolutely perfect lunch. The 3 courses were very well cooked, especially the Sardinian fish stew which was sublime.
Thank you for a very enjoyable dining experience.

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.

    Seafood spaghetti was really excellent. Hake with chorizo potatoes was not quite so good because the fish was a little dry but it was very tasty. Two glasses of red from Public very good.

    Disappointing. Fish cakes were bland and fish stew over salty with not a lot of fish. We have been several times. Standards seem to be dropping.

    Unfortunately we didn't have a good experience at St Clements. My starter of fish cakes arrived still cold in the middle and had to be sent back twice before they arrived hot.

    We then waiting 20 minutes for our dessert of apple cake.
    Both were taken off the bill and I'm sure we just had a bad experience but there seemed to be no one in charge. Our waiter apologised for the mistakes however the most senior of the serving staff didn't want to get involved in these mistakes.

    It was a disappointing birthday meal for my parter.

    Delicious food expertly cooked. Wonderful moules and sea bass with lemongrass. Delightful staff who stayed open longer for us
    at lunchtime when we arrived late. Also produced not only kids menu but colouring pencils.

    Love the intimacy of the restaurant, not to big so covers small! So service should be good! Unfortunately it took quite a while to put our order in even though it’s not a big restaurant! The 2 men who were taking orders serving etc need to do a course on how to run from front of house to the client liaison! Bring in Olga Polizzi! They need more training and possibly one more staff member for front of house!!

    Lovely restaurant with friendly, efficient staff. The food was delicious. I'm not keen when restaurants insist on two sittings. I had to opt for the very early session and then the restaurant was very quiet so I could have eaten later (think this was due to it being Bonfire Night).

    The St. Clements is our favourite restaurant in our area of East Sussex and never disappoints. Between us we had Hastings fishcakes x 2, seafood spaghetti, porcini mushroom risotto and a desert involving mascarpone cheese and plums. We also like to have a pre-dinner drink at The Horse & Groom next door.

    Another lovely meal. The fish stew, as ever, was delicious. We love this place - it's just a shame it's so far from where we live!
