Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2016, 2018 Winner

Location and contact

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.

Really enjoyed the food, drinks were a little too expensive though. Staff was extremely rude, gave an impression that they wanted us out (was with a group of friends). All had sour looks on their faces. Asked for a glass of water 3 times, had...More

Great place on a snowy afternoon. Lamb Stew & Spicy beef spring rolls were delicious. Lamb was really tender, very hearty. Only a couple blocks from Flower Market on Rembrandtplein.

Pubs in Amsterdam really surprised me. I’m used to dingy lighting, stuffy air and oily, defrosted food. This one had a delicious, juicy burger, a (what tasted like) homemade leek soup and crispy fries. Or chips - if you’re feeling British. Food was great. Service...More

Popped in here for a quick drink. Was fine. Staff were friendly, was a comfortable pub. Fairly expensive but that’s not surprising for the area.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

I don't know exactly, but it was a mild, white fish. I have to say, I was so excited to get fish and chips in London and this was where I tried it. I was not impressed. Too much batter!
