A changing menu with a refined list of dishes. I selected the soup, delicious, and the superb Liver and Bacon as a main course. The others (3) all had the fish, again V.good. Wine least was reasonably priced, Service was excellent and friendly. We will surely go back .

St James always deliver a fantastic evening of food and service. Having been here several times, every dish is cooked to perfection, with great flavors, and a great selection for all. The service is kind and attentive without being over the top. A great place to impress with friends, family or business, that will not hurt the wallet.

Attended a family 60th Birthday Party last Sunday evening. Atmosphere, food, drinks and service was excellent. We all had a wonderful time and would highly recommend for a private function.

Nice restaurant. Been here twice over the last month. Has a relaxed ambience. Food is good, staff are friendly. Boringly, nothing to complain about. Spend a pleasant couple of hours enjoying your meal. Cant say fairer than that!
