A coworker and myself had meetings in Vancouver and decided on the way home we'd stop here after finding it on the web (90s reference). We were sat right away as iron had just opened at 11am (we're raging alcoholics) We ordered the Twin Sails IPA but unfortunately they were all out so we moved onto the Yellow Dog IPA... More

Live music on Friday nights. Nice big fireplace. Good beer and really good food. The mini Yorkies are $2.25 each and so tasty! In new port village. Classic Irish grub.

Really great food, beer selection (lots of local brews on tap), and service. Can be extremely busy and loud.

This pub has had its ups and downs over the last 15 years that we've been going there. It seem like every few years, you go there for dinner and the food is terrible and then you go again in a few months and it's great again. Right now, the food is really good, and seems to be made from... More

Upon arrival in Port Moody we met our son and his wife here for lunch. The pub is located in a mixed redidential/retail complex. Free parking is available either outdoors or in a nearby underground garage. Decor was "Irish Pubby" with a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu was extensive and a good variety of beers... More

Considering a " wee breakfast" as advertised in the menu online, is one egg, bacon/sausage, has browns, a fresh baked scone and warm compote and costs $8.00, their so called buffet brunch on New Year's Day Jan 1 2017, was a total rip off for $15.00 per person! On offer: scrambled eggs, poached eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns and grapes.... More

Have been here quite a few times for a drink and have tried the food three times. I really enjoy the atmosphere and the people are very friendly. The pub itself very charming, quaint and reminds me of the British Isles! But....three times unlucky with food. Last night our burgers were not good at all. Will continue to visit for... More

We stopped by for dinner and a beer on Boxing Day. The place was about half full, but rather noisy. We ordered our dinner (2 pieces of fish and chips...........not enough for 2 people), which was served promptly and tasted good. However, they decided to put whatever game was on TV over the speakers and conversation immediately became impossible. We... More

The group wanted delicious food and a fun atmosphere and the St. James hit the nail on the head. Friendly staff, accommodating for allergies, and the food was soooo delicious. May travel here again just so I can enjoy another delicious dinner, would be worth the trip.
