Lovely location in Rambramdt Square. Pleasant waitress. We didn't eat but had hot drinks. Good strong coffee and English tea. Tetly tea bag actually in proper hot water and served with milk. Not everyone's priorities I realise but just what we wanted.

We ate delicious food here, had great beer for a reasonable price. The bar is located at the Rembrandt square, which is always alive and full of young people. The service in the place very decent. Would come again.

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!

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.
