Large Irish themed bar that has a good food and drink menu. Both reasonable value and there is always a lively atmosphere. Service very good. Well worth a visit.

“YUMMY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I had the Beef DIp and my spouse had a burger. The servings were huge and filling and the bartender was very friendly suggesting some good places to see a live band. I would go back again!

“Amazing”

What a little gem that place is!! It's off the Main Street so I bet a lot of people miss it. The food was incredible and the waitresses were so nice! I would definitely return!!

“Wonderful atmosphere and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Each year when we visit Banff, we must go to St James for dinner at least once. The atmosphere is FUN, the food is always delicious and the service is wonderful. It does get crowded for dinner, so we suggest dropping by during the day and making a reservation. They take limited reservations for dinner.

“Good atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Have eaten at this pub several times before and it always offers good value for money and avery good atmosphere. Staff are very friendly and seem to enjoy their job and are very good at recommending things from the menu. The nighty specials are especially good.
