Good selection of well cooked food

Tucked away in St Leonard's, was 5 mins in a taxi from Hastings. Nice restaurant but rather on the small side with only enough room for about 8 tables. Made it nice and cosy as we got tucked in the corner but a few tables were in the middle or in front of the bar and would have felt very... read more

This was recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. The whole experience was fantastic, the customer service was excellent and we had a fabulous meal. The freshest, in season ingredients were used to create three delicious courses. Make sure you leave enough room for dessert, as the peanut & chocolate cheesecake is divine! All supported with a good wine list,... More

Just got back from a fabulous meal at St Clements. Four of us had 3 courses each and not a morsel was left on anyone's plate - really tasty, well cooked food. About £50 a head, including wine, coffees, brandies and the tip. Good value for a lovely night out.

We had dinner at St Clement's last night and it was an all-round excellent experience. Menu was excellent with daily specials. The restaurant manager was very knowledgable about the food and made personal recommendations. However, the wine list and her knowledge and passion for wines were the real highlight of the meal for me. They have an unrivalled-in-Hastings selection of... More

St Clement's has a very good rating on Trip Advisor which is why we booked dinner there - and it was well worth the visit. The restaurant is tucked away on a side street in St Leonards so certainly couldn't rely on passing trade. The fact that it was steadily busy for our early dinner sitting is an indication that...

Lovely food, good but unhurried service, nice ambience and not overly pricey. Next time we are in Hastings we will definitely eating there.

A delightful lunch, following a warm welcome. A large party was dealt with no problems and dietary requirements did not faze them. One of the best restaurants in the area. Look forward to returning.

We had a lovely meal at St Clements last night. Great food, very friendly staff. We've eaten in most of Hastings restaurants and this is probably our favorite now. Prices were fair.
