We booked St. James for our mother's 80th birthday celebration. The afternoon was a resounding success due to the superb food and service that we received. They catered for just over 30 of us with a minimum of fuss and the feedback from all who attended was 100% positive. Thanks to all concerned. We would recommend without reservation.

Having looked at many different venues to hold our wedding reception at we decided to choose St James. From the moment that we told Alfonso and Alfie they could not have been more helpful. They helped us plan and create a fabulous menu that catered for everyone's taste, nothing was too much trouble. We were left feeling very confident that... More

I have just had my daughters wedding at The St James and I can tell you gladly that being very fussy the food and the service was just excellent. Having been to lots of weddings and eaten at them I can safely say that the food was head and shoulders better than any I have been to. I have never... More

I have eaten here 5 times in the last six months and always on business for either lunch or dinner. The owner and his staff are so attentive and really know how to please. Food is first rate and particularly the calves liver which is always cooked to perfection. If I ever left my company in Elstree I would be... More

A true gem of a restaurant. Fabulous food, service and atmosphere. Owner Alfonso and his passionate team make every trip a delight from the moment we step through the door to the cheeky digestif on the terrace. An excellent and treasured place to eat.

Great value lunch in a busy and buzzing setting on Bushey High St. Staff attentive and very friendly, manager came over twice to check meal was as expected and gave us a history of the restaurant too. The set lunch came in at £20.95 which was a bargain for the quality of food. I started with Pigeon breast, served with... More

We went to this lovely restaurant as a work team lunch and were greeted by two very friendly staff. The gentleman who looked after our table was wonderful and none of us were left unattended. The quality of the food was very high (often when you are a large group the service and food sometimes lack at some places -... More

10 years since our last visit, it was great to find that not only was St James as good as we remembered, but how far it had moved on. The food was imaginative, beautifully cooked and presented by well trained and enthusiastic staff. The owner does a good 'front of house' job, a welcoming but not too intrusive presence throughout...

Having moved to "The Midlands" some 14 years ago, I do not have the opportunity of dining at this first class restaurant as much as I would like. However, yesterday with friends, I was able to enjoy a terrific lunch after being so warmly greeted by the owner, The food and service can only be described as excellent and wonderful... More

I have been going here with the family every couple or months or so, and have never been disappointed. The food on every visit has been fantastic, and the waiters, and the owner treated us like regulars from the very beginning. We have been going a lot due to this brilliant atmosphere they create and will continue to. If you... More
