I had a great Flat white there, it was very interesting to see them roast their coffee on site. I tried to go there 2 weeks ago but sadly they had closed down.

Food took over an hour to arrive even though the restaurant had about 4-5 tables in total, the waiter appeared to be shy and with limited English but was very polite, so no problems there. Beer menu was very limited, but they had some nice...More

I am a sucker for all things Portuguese so I couldn't not pay a visit to this new pop up restaurant at Climpson's Arch! Slow start - we were left waiting at the door, then asked to sit at the bar counter from where we...More

I wanted to like LC at Climpson’s Arch. After loving Som Saa, the concept of a longer-term rotating chef is fun and different. However, while the concept is good, the food from LC was nowhere near the previous chef. We left shaking our heads with...More

Climpson's Arch, also home to Climpson & Sons Coffee Roastery & Coffee Bar, is a restaurant residency offering a platform for young chefs and the rising stars of the food world to cook and perform in our venue. Our mission is to act as a business incubator: we offer our space for a fixed duration (minimum 6 months) to cultivate a combination of creativity and the practicalities of running a business. Chefs wishing to have their own restaurant are given the tools to bench test their food concept without financial risk. Since 2013 Climpson’s Arch has been established as a permanent restaurant, open all year round Thursday through to Sunday, creating a welcoming venue for the local community. Our latest collaboration is with L.C at Climpson's Arch.. At L.C you will find dishes with a strong focus on textures and bold flavours, with a big pull on Leo’s Portuguese roots. Walk ins welcome. Groups of 8 or more can get in touch to book.
