Mediocre Pub Food

I recently took a large group of about 30 here for dinner. Quite frankly the staff found it very hard to cope. Meals took forever to appear (even though we pre ordered) and were not of great quality. In fact I couldn't eat mine.... Would I go again? No.

Thought I would try a meal in this pub bistro - well..... Food was ok and as expected for the price.... Customer service was poor even for a pub.... Meal was slow to arrive and no smile or apology... Left feeling a little disappointed.

The environment is nice - except is took 55 minutes to receive our meals - really not acceptable when I was just waiting on snitzel and chips!

Recently visited on business with a colleague, the scallops for entree were undercooked, the pumpkin salad was terrible and the salmon was served with packaged mash potato and was inedible. Not what you would expect from an Irish pub- we won't be back.

We were staying just up the road for a concert and decided to head down to Pj's to check out what they had for dinner, and were not disappointed, this is great pub food with a little extra selection. Would recommend to those who like a decent pub meal and atmosphere with music.

We have just eaten here. We are staying at the motel across the road and thought we would order some good pub food, big mistake. The food was cold, there was no salad, they didn't give us knives or forks to eat with, no napkins and the portion size was not reasonable for what we paid. Now we are sitting... More

Ate here a couple of times during my trip. Several rooms/areas from which to sit. I chose the bar area both times. Service was excellent. Very friendly wait staff. Food was good. Beer was cold. Service good. What more can you ask for?

We went to PJ's as it was around the corner from our hotel. The dining area was full due to a party but you can eat anywhere within the pub so with friends grab a table and ordered the service and food where great. Price of the drinks where also very cheap well done.... One draw back it was a... More
