Description: St James's Gate is a large Irish Pub authentically and tastefully decorated and perfect for large groups of people. With its large bar and spacious seating area in the front, a very cosy, warm and intimate area in the back, St James's Gate appeals to many. Despite being relatively new St James's Gate has a good clientel mainly due to the amiable staff who are predominantly Irish. Drinking here you'll have a wide selection of Irish beers and whiskeys and with the resident Irish chef you'll get absolutely delicious food and before you know it you'll be a regular customer to St James's Gate.

This bar was the saving grace for a vegetarian in Amsterdam! Really great food, fairly good value and good portion sizes. I couldn't get enough of the cheese spring rolls and the veggie burger was lovely.
I would recommend sitting outside unless you are a big sports fan; outside is a good place to people-watch and soak up the atmosphere. Great and fast customer service. Would recommend!!

Here we had a plate of Dutch typicall snacks (very good ----balls, cheese.just one strange piece of raw mixed meat I didn't try). Noone asked me to pay for a toilet, as it was written before.

If you sit inside, don't sit straight from the doors, it can be quite windy.

If you have sweet tooth, try their typical apple pie, it was delicius!

Just back from a trip to Amsterdam.. We visted st James Irish gate bar on three occassions.. Food is ok and staff are friendly, drink is fairly over priced with a pint of cider costing 8 euro but i have to say what was out rageous was a charge of 50 cent for use of the toiltet... We were travelling in a party of 4 and between breakfast and dinner we left quiet a few pound there and i think to be followed out of a toiltet for 50 cent is crazy...

If you are out site seeing all day as my wife and I were doing, and it is time for that cold beer at the end of day with a great meal, look no further as we stumpled onto this great Irish pub, we enjoyed a few cold Guinness with a nice hot Irish stew.

Myself and 3 friends went into this bar on saturday 26/10/13, to watch EPL football, the pub itself was fine and as we didn't eat in there we can't comment on the food, but the drinks we had which were the bavaria lager at 6 euro's a pint and the Guinness at 6.60 euro's a pint seemed too both the the lager and guinness drinkers to be watered down, And I can honestly say both I and the other Guinness drinker in our party agreed that it was the worst pint of Guinness either of us have ever tasted, so be warned expensive and tasteless, we didn't go back and we drank the same drinks in other bars around Amsterdam and had an all together better expierience of those brands of beer
