Located in a tranquil, residential street just a short stroll from the ancient City Centre Walls, Clementine’s occupies a historic townhouse once owned by a Victorian gentleman.

Retaining its historical past, many of the original architectural features of the building remain, with the front of the property seeing its traditional features restored to their former natural beauty. Features such as the tiled floor and stained glass windows can be seen, alongside a beautiful Victorian walled garden.
