It's been a while since I had dinner at this gen tucked away on the High Street and as always, I left feeling completely satisfied! The service is outstanding - from the owner and manager to each one of the waiting staff. They are friendly and welcoming without being overbearing. However, as good as the service is, the food is...

Visited a couple of weeks ago and been very busy since but determined to post a review as so disgusted at treatment from staff who were so disinterested and very condensing. As only two of four of us was drinking wine and one of them was driving we ordered a half bottle of wine and were questioned by the waiter... More

We have been to St.James' a few times and this was a family celebration. What a disappointing meal. The waiters looked tired, were not at all attentive in fact they looked like serving us was doing us a favour. The food was not at it's usually high standard which we have come to expect. We all independently said that there... More

Excellent menu great choice of fish and meat all beautifully served and presented. Fast efficient service. Very busy but to be expected on a Bank Holiday Saturday evening in prime time. Lovely wine list too

Took a group of colleagues here for dinner. The restaurant has a nice ambience and the staff were very charming. The menu is fairly extensive, modern European style. I tried the Monkfish starter and the Venison as a main, both were expertly cooked and delicious. Everyone enjoyed the meal so will definately look to return.

Great restaurant but my only complaint would be the lack of space. I had some perfectly cooked scallops then lamb followed by stick toffee. Good service as well

Visited the restaurant with friends and family on 7th April. Food and menu was first class and so was the service. Will definately visit again next time we are in the area. Only reason not 5 stars is the added service charge which we chose not to pay and we left our own gratuity.

Went to St James last night. Again, service and food excellent. Monkfish starter was to die for and the tuna main dish was very tasty. You forget just how good this local restaurant is. The service and quality is constantly maintained and this is shown by the fact it was really busy for a Tuesday night.

Six of us went to St James's Restaurant last night to celebrate a friend's birthday. A very friendly welcome as soon as we walked in. Excellent service, fantastic food, good menu and very reasonably priced. We had not mentioned that it was a birthday celebration, but the staff had worked it out and presented my friend a dessert with a... More
