About the employer

”When we opened back in 1997, we said that people should come to St James to eat, drink, and enjoy - and I believe we’ve certainly achieved that! I’m proud to have seen the restaurant go from strength to strength over the years, establishing itself as one of the leading restaurants in the area. It’s received fantastic reviews in the press, and, most importantly of all, a huge amount of praise from our customers who have come here to celebrate many occasions. We’ve accomplished what we set out to do: to serve great dishes made from good quality ingredients. If you come to St James, you’ll find a menu changing with the seasons to ensure the freshest ingredients are used; and an extensive wine list from which you’ll be sure to find a wine to compliment your meal. A visit to St James will mean that you’ll experience a great meal in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We look forward to seeing you soon!”
