The new owners are both friendly and run a very good reasonably priced clean establishment. The food was of a very high standard my only gripe would be that they were a bit stingy with the chips.We will certainly be back again later in the year.

These three people run a very friendly and welcoming establishment. When I asked if I could watch the Bath Rugby match they organized it in seconds. Worth a visit.

A group of 4 of us visited Benidorm for 4 nights at the beginning of September 2014. Our hotel was just up the road so we came across St James Tavern on our first night and was really impressed, we then went back every night!! No problems and really enjoyable food.
