Went to St. James restaurant tonight. The meal was good. It was a little annoying that we were there before our friends and we said we would wait for drinks until they came. The minute they arrived they were asked for drinks and said could they at least sit down and talk first. Just a little too much push. However... More

Visited here last Thursday night, our Starter's were lovely as well as the mains apart from the boneless whole seabass which wasn't great but it didn't matter because everything else was great. The staff are friendly and polite. Although, very expensive similar to michelin-starred restaurants in Central London. Would come here again but only on a special occasion.

We went there with friends and had a lovely meal. It had a great atmosphere and had a nice table next to the window. The staff were friendly and service was excellent. We all enjoyed the choices we made and the food was delicious. We had a lovely evening and look forward to returning soon.

Always good....my favourite restaurant in the area....great atmosphere friendly staff, and everyone always goes out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. They deserve to be busy, and I've never had a bad meal there.

It's been a while since I had dinner at this gen tucked away on the High Street and as always, I left feeling completely satisfied! The service is outstanding - from the owner and manager to each one of the waiting staff. They are friendly and welcoming without being overbearing. However, as good as the service is, the food is...

Visited a couple of weeks ago and been very busy since but determined to post a review as so disgusted at treatment from staff who were so disinterested and very condensing. As only two of four of us was drinking wine and one of them was driving we ordered a half bottle of wine and were questioned by the waiter... More

We have been to St.James' a few times and this was a family celebration. What a disappointing meal. The waiters looked tired, were not at all attentive in fact they looked like serving us was doing us a favour. The food was not at it's usually high standard which we have come to expect. We all independently said that there... More

Excellent menu great choice of fish and meat all beautifully served and presented. Fast efficient service. Very busy but to be expected on a Bank Holiday Saturday evening in prime time. Lovely wine list too

Took a group of colleagues here for dinner. The restaurant has a nice ambience and the staff were very charming. The menu is fairly extensive, modern European style. I tried the Monkfish starter and the Venison as a main, both were expertly cooked and delicious. Everyone enjoyed the meal so will definately look to return.
