I have dined at this restaurant for over 5 years. I have never had a bad meal and neither have any of my companions. We have sometimes been part of a group of up to 60 and the food and service have always been great.

We have just come back from a lunch party at this restaurant. the establishment was tastefully decorated. we had a wonderful meal which was nicely presented. I had lamb rump which was excellent. other people had rib of beef which look excellent, and the comments i received seemed to reflect this. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

We took some friends to St James last week. Whilst the food was of a fair standard , the prices were , quite frankly, worthy of a much better dining experience. The wine list prices were , to be honest, something of a bad joke and the service was efficient but not particularly welcoming or friendly. I will not return... More

The last time we visited we had a bad meal however this visit we were really pleased. As it was lunch time we had the set menu and my chicken dish has returned and it was GREAT! Staff were good but could have been a bit more friendly but for sure they were professional. I'm glad last time was a... More

Went there for a meeting followed by dining with a group of 15 people. It was pre-booked and we had a dining area at the back. We had an excellent choice or starters, mains and desserts from the fixed menu at a very reasonable price. The food was excellent and there were no dissenting voices as to the quality or... More

St James has been delighting the residents of Bushey for many years. I have never had a bad experience here. It has an unhurried and friendly ambience, consistently reliable service and good food.

If you want a high quality meal, forget The Grove. This restaurant does better food and has a much friendlier atmosphere thanks to the owner, Alfonso. I have been there many times and hope to go back many more.
