Review of St Clements, St Leonards on Sea

Nick Hales goes down to the local day boats almost every day to procure spanking fresh fish supplies for his relaxed neighbourhood restaurant St Clements, a short stroll from the beach at St Leonards on Sea. Having earned his stripes at big London venues like L'Odéon, he now applies his skills impressively in a very different way.

The menu is topped up with a board of specials that could change two or three times each session, and there's no unnecessary fancywork or flim-flam when it comes to the dishes themselves. A plate of local smoked fish (from the Weald Smokery just up the A21) comes with horseradish cream and rye bread, sea bass might be served with a Greek salad, while cod is topped with a Parmesan and herb crust and served with creamed leek sauce.

Occasionally, something more exotic turns up – a Thai salad of char-grilled king prawns, gurnard and cuttlefish, for example – and meat fans are assuaged with slow-roast belly pork, mustard mash and red wine sauce or roast leg of organic lamb with peas, broad beans and mint salsa. To round things off, the kitchen produces crowd-pleasers like sticky toffee pudding or chocolate truffle cake with crème fraîche and Kent cherries.
