A perfect setting for our anniversary meal.

Situated in beautiful surroundings, once through the gate a well manicured lawn and well tended garden awaited us. On entering into the restaurant we were greeted immediately and taken through to the walled garden to enjoy some pre dinner drinks. We selected our meals from the menu while we... read more

We selected our meals from the menu while we relaxed in the comfortable garden sofa's. And within minutes of making... More

We had an excellent meal with wine from their extensive list. The setting is beautiful in a very nice old house with lovely gardens. The only spoiler was we had a table for two in a position where we could hardly see any of the other diners so it spoilt the atmosphere for us. But the meal was excellent.

We ate at St. Helena on a Friday night, and as the sun was still shining when we arrived, we were able to enjoy a glass of champagne in the courtyard garden while looking at the menu. Everything that we had was well cooked, and beautifully presented. The gap between courses was about right, and the staff checked up on... More

We haven't been to this restaurant for a number of years - we have been missing out! The ambience, service, menu, food were all a delight. We aren't always the easiest of families to serve with a couple of allergies amongst us but it was no problem here at all. We went here for a family birthday celebration and had... More

My boyfriend took me to St Helena for my birthday and I was very excited as whenever I look on trip advisor for a good place to eat, st Helena is always number one. The building and setting is beautiful in itself. The food is Michelin star I believe. The staff were extremely attentive and it felt like a personal... More

This is a real find - tucked away in the small village of Elstow but fit for a big city. The food was lovely and the service personal but unobtrusive.

If you need somewhere to go with a wow factor then this is the place. From the warm welcome to the innovative but not too fussy menu you are in for a great treat. The team have a great way of making everyone feel important without being intrusive. I can not recommend enough.
