Staff work fast offering great service and the food is served to an impeccable standard.
Another lovely meal in a great Pub with fantastic friendly staff. We love all the events at the St James and love its uniqueness. Good to get away from the big chains of restaurants. We were made to feel very welcome on Friday evening and enjoyed our meal in a warm and snug location. I’m a coeliac and the Gluten Free options are great! So nice to have GF chips too! Thank you. We will be back soon.
Great atmosphere, good food and excellent beers, all at a reasonable price. What more can you want from a pub! A rare mix-up with the food order was swiftly resolved leaving seven very happy customers.
Great friendly pub with great food and atmosphere
The staff were very helpful during the booking process and the service and food was great. We love this pub!
Lovely friendly staff, quick and painless booking system, tasty and good value for money food.
Just ticks every box, time and time again. Keep it up!
Great Sunday lunches yesterday - chicken and beef. Generous portions, well cooked and presented and at a very good price.
Excellent roast dinner, as always. Love the new addition of the swede/carrot mash on the side too!
Nice atmosphere good food good service what more do you need
Generously portioned plates of very tasty food warmly served in an authentic pub atmosphere, I will be back. Thanks for a great Sunday lunch!
The food was excellently prepared and tasted amazing, I went with my parents and my dad really enjoyed the selections of beers, he was really chuffed with that they had on offer! Overall had a wonderful Sunday lunch at St James Tavern and I would highly reccomend it to anyone I meet wanting great food and a lovely atmosphere. Exquisite!
Thanks so much to James, Becki, Gabriel and the rest of the St James Tavern team who made my daughter's 18th Birthday Party a success. All the staff were so friendly which made the organisation beforehand and the actual set up on the night a real pleasure which is really important. Gabriel kept popping up and checking that we were OK and was there to help at the end while we were packing away. The food was really good too - we took some home that hadn't been eaten and ate it the next day - very nice! Thanks again - Ella and her pals had a great night and we were most happy!
This was our second year at SJT and the food, service, atmosphere and company was fantastic. We have booked again for next Christmas!
Effective booking service and follow-up Nice, calm place (at least that evening!) Helpful, friendly staff Enjoyed the food - very good
Thanks so much for having us, we had a lovely night! Food and staff were both great.
We came for our Christmas meal and with 41 of us in tow it was always going to be a masterstroke to feed us all quality food and to keep everyone happy, something the staff at The Saint James Tavern took in their stride! Not only did they deliver hot food that was consistent across the board but it was tasty especially the beef that just fell apart. All of my party remarked on how good the food was and what a high standard it was. I can't recommend the SJT enough, if they can handle 41 of us with ease they can handle anything!
Booked a table for 20 and what a fantastic job the guys did with making the evening go without a hitch. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was incredible, some of the best you will find in Winchester. Thank you SJT for an amazing evening.
I've been to the SJT to eat before and will go again. The food was great quality, hot and tasty!
Lovely hot food and accommodating staff for our office Christmas lunch! Would definitely recommend.
We all enjoyed a fantastic Christmas lunch at the St James Tavern. Thank you everyone, especially Becky, for making the day.
Big thank you to Becki for her assistance in helping me with my food intolerance issue. Very friendly and really willing to help.
We have a lovely Christmas lunch. However, the portions were quite small so we thought that it was a bit overpriced.
Hadn’t been for years and was pleasantly surprised. A very good burger and lively atmosphere.
