The St James on Venice


    The St James on Venice became a Fully Halal establishment on the 4th of May 2017. Taking over the Hotel and restaurant meant that everything needed to be changed to the Halal standards, thus suppliers, rules and regulations have been in place. We had to remove images from the web that goes against our regulations too. If you do spot an image that raises concern, Please do contact us so that we can rectify this.



    Sundays – Thursdays until 9pm

    Fridays & Saturdays until 10pm

    The weather is very often conducive to sitting outside and we encourage guests to take advantage of the beautiful garden setting and dine “Al Fresco”.
