My wife and I chose St James to celebrate our Diamond Wedding Anniversary and we could not have made a better choice. We had fifty of our close family and friends for lunch and Alphonse and his staff were absolutely brilliant. The reception was exceptional and the lunch could not have been better as the menu we were presented with... More

St James is a restaurant that you go to for an occasion. The food, choice of wines and service are all excellent. If you want to impress a client for lunch this a the first choice. It's easy to find right on the high street and parking is not an issue.

We have enjoyed excellent lunches and dinners at the St James for many years and Alfonso and his staff are always welcoming and professional. The menu is always a delight and the food delicious and beautifully presented. Alfonso closed the restaurant on a Sunday lunchtime recently so we could have a private family party for 50 guests. We had a... More

I really can't praise enough the establishment and food of this little gem restaurant in Bushey. We celebrated my fathers 80th birthday with a mixture of guests ranging from ages 14 to 80; every single diner was looked after superbly and all left having eaten excellently prepared and presented food. We have dined here on many occasions ranging from dinner... More

Welcoming and comfortable interior - exterior is a little too modest perhaps. Attentive staff - perhaps too attentive, but competent certainly. Excellent menu, especially for vegetarians. Menu presentation requires freshening. Wine selection is excellent (for this area) and there is something to suit all pockets. Excellent food quality - well presented, perfect temperature and really generous portions. Good set-up.

We had our sons barmitzvah at this fantastic restaurant. And it was amazing from beginning to end. Nothing was too much trouble from the team and the food was out of this world. Will be coming back soon.
