Welcome to the James' Places website.
Here you’ll find all the information you’ll ever need about our various buildings and businesses. What we do, where we do it, and when we are open….. which is, by and large, nearly all the time! You’ll also find details of special events, promotions and offers and any other bits and pieces that we’d like to pass on.

Thank’s for visiting the site and a bigger thanks for visting one of our places!
