I visited St James with my parents for a birthday lunch, and we were really impressed with both the service and the food. This was our first visit after I passed the restaurant about ten years ago and said I wanted to go inside - it was certainly worth the wait! My first course was crusted brie, followed by smoked...

I took my sister and a friend for a special birthday lunch on Saturday 22nd August 2015. It was my first visit to this restaurant and I will certainly go again. Lovely welcome, first class attentive service from our waiter and the food is absolutely gorgeous.

We went there for a celebration, it had been highly recommended. We were welcomed by the owner as we arrived and so was everyone else, a very nice touch. The ambience was perfect and so we're all the staff. Timings between ordering and courses was just right and as for the food cooked to perfection. I would certainly go again... More

Nice food, original menu but ruined by rushed, sloppy service. We went on a Wed night it seemed like the waiting staff were the 2nd 11 or under training. We had barely sat down before our starters (clearly already plated up) were served, wines poured sloppily not the level of service consummate with the impression expected of the place.

My mum had her 70th birthday lunch at St James at the end of July. It was fabulous, the food, Alfie and his staff were fantastic. Thank you so much, and i can honestly recommend this venue to everyone.
