Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 August 2014

The ST. James Tavern is a well-run pub in Kemptown, with a fine selection of beers, an outstanding rum collection and great value authentic Thai food. The Pad Thai is probably the best I have tasted this side of Bangkok. We often come here when we can't be bothered to cook, and have never yet been disappointed by the food.
The atmosphere is friendly, there usually is some eclectic music playing (but not so loud as to preclude conversation) and the beer are well kept. What more could you ask from a corner boozer?

Until I entered the St James Tavern I didn't realise that pubs could make such tasty Thai food. We were staying in Kemp town in Brighton and this pub was an easy stroll down St James street. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. Service was quick and staff friendly.

stumbled across this pub offering a great thai menu in a Sunday afternoon. although i arrived 5 minutes before the kitchen of the pub closed, they accepted my order. the menu is extensive and run by a thai group of chefs. i had the chicken jungle curry and the green papaya salad with beer. the food came very quickly and was simply delicious.very authentic tasting food in a a very relaxed and rustic environment, at incredibly reasonable prices.
