Nice authentic Irish pub. It was originally built in Dublin it was transported to Banff, Canada. Staff are very friendly. We were there for our dinner and I had Chicken, bacon & leek pie and it was delicious. Hubby was very happy with his bangers and mash. Reasonable prices considering were you are.

The atmosphere is terrific in this pub, which apparently was picked up from Dublin and transported to Banff! We ate here on a previous holiday, and it was so good we knew we had to come back again this time around. The fish and chips are wonderful and fresh, but the winner meal was the maple salmon which was very... More

Cute little Irish Pub with good food, and great service. Our waitress Mercedes was friendly and efficient. Bringing drinks and recommending food that was really good. Reasonably priced and the value for the money was good.

Plenty of Irish themed works on the walls and around the place, which adds charm to its character. Stopped here for lunch and had the Irish Stew which was good, had a few drinks which the staff were able to recommend. Friendly and efficient service, prices reasonable for food and drinks.

This restaurant is a great choice. We come here often when in Banff - the food is good, service is prompt and helpful. It tends to be quieter (at least at lunch) and is a great place to relax for a while. We often use this restaurant as a meet up spot.

Coming from Ireland - myself and my wife were fortunate to find this pub. When we entered, you could see (and feel) there was a little bit of home. Reminded me of my local back home. Food was excellent (try the Guinness pie). Plus they serve Smithwicks. We came back to this pub a few times during our stay. The... More

Our Story Begins in Ireland Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, St. James's Gate, established in 1996, was built and manufactured in Dublin, Ireland. The authenticity of the imported Irish woodwork and fantastic artifacts make St. James Gate one of the premier Irish Pubs in the world. The Gate has a warm friendly atmosphere that makes you feel instantly at home. Rub shoulders with local residents and tourists from around the world. The bartenders are friendly and prepare the drinks with care and consideration and the staff proves just what a capable & fun group of servers is worth. It's everything an Irish Pub should be.
