James’s Gate is divided into two halves: the restaurant and the pub.  It’s probably no surprise that you should stick to the half devoted to drinking, where the bar stools are populated by local JPers, the fire roars warm all winter and you can still get a great bowl of bangers and mash. The bartenders might have traded Irish accents for full sleeves, but the vibe is still authentic and homey.
