I ordered a drink from the older barman, and he grabbed the ice with his bare hands. VERY unsanitary, I made him remake my drink as it is very disgusting.

Had drinks and food here a few times throughout our stay. Handy location in Rembrandtplein with good, covered, outdoor seating. The blankets on the chair for colder days is a nice touch. There is a good range of food and everything we tried was delicious....More

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.
