We visited for dinner. Service and food were excellent. We will return. Seasonal menu, local ingredients, perfectly cooked.

Super high quality food, always tasty and with great lunch deals. I wish the menu would change more frequently as then I would go more often. I would love it if the decor was updated as it looks lower rent than the cost of the dishes.

I read TA and decided to visit this restaurant. Without a doubt the best restaurant I have been to in months. The service from Sarah, Jenny and Billy was attentive and extremely professional. The attention to detail was refreshing. The meal - had the whole fish Sea Bass. Delicate - flavorful - perfect flavor. The appetizers we ordered were perfect... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem! The food was amazing, the staff discretely attentive. They do a fixed price lunch menu with choices from the a la carte menu. We enjoyed it a lot & would highly recommend (we had planned to go to Webbes but glad we chose here instead!)

We dined here on a Saturday night and were most impressed. We both had the asparagus and duck egg starter, which was excellent. The steak and hake main courses were both well cooked and generous portions. The chocolate and peanut butter dessert was delicious (although my wife found it slightly too salty). This was all washed down with a fantastic... More

Four friends for a weekend away and St Clements was recommended to us. So glad it was - small and cosy inside and greeted warmly. The staff were amazing. Two had asparagus and poached duck egg which was cooked to perfection. The moules were plentiful and the terrine was just lovely - probably the best piccalilli I've ever tasted. Mains... More

We went here with our friends who had booked. It was such a good meal. The menu for food and drink was inspiring with so much choice. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and were very accommodating for the 3 children in our party. They deserve every success. Highly recommended for a special meal.

We had a very special meal in this lovely restaurant. Even simple dishes were absolutely delicious, and the staff was amazingly attentive and accommodating, even though we went there with our lively 18 month old. I'm Italian, and very picky about pasta. Rarely do I order it outside of Italy as I know most of the time it won't be... More

Small space inside the restaurant but it was nice and cozy. Also warm and toasty, just comfortable. Perfect for a romantic dinner. We've not had whelks before and we didn't even know what they were but boy were we glad we tried it! Dish didn't look anything special, didn't even look pretty but it was full of flavour! It was...

Visited for the second sitting Saturday evening at 9pm. Lovely food and service which could not be faulted. Garlic prawns to start were particularly delicious but everything executed really well. Been here three times for dinner now and each occasion superb.
