“Great food, good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

My family enjoyed a great Lunch at this Pub over the Easter Weekend. The portions are huge, the food is very good. The Service was a little slow but was likely because it was busy and they could have used more staff.
The pub itself is very quaint and has a very friendly atmosphere.
I had visited this Pub a few years back and when the question came up.. where should we have lunch.. this was the first place that came to mind. No one in our group was disappointed and if you have the opportunity to stop in here for a meal, you won't be either~

“Another nice night at St James”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Had a great evening at St James as usual. Ordered their fish and chips and listened to a great Irish folk singer, a regular there Thursday nights. Always a popular stop it was full most of the night when the town itself was quiet.

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!
