“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Great place for a pub meal, especially the huge lamb shanks. Quiz night on Tuesday evenings is a great night out.

“Good Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

This is the closest pub to an authentic irish bar in NZ. We have seen some great live acts here. Well worth a look.

“Good $10 lunches”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Been to JJ's for the $10 lunch twice now and it's great value - burgers, fish and chips, chicken burrito, nachos etc. It's a typical Irish pub with the usual fare and atmosphere but definitely great for a cheap lunch :0)

“Terrible service”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

We went to this bar for a private function upstairs saw a private function sign so went in, we were looking arOund for people we knew when the bar tender asked if we were meant to be there we said we weren't sure we were looking for a function but this didn't look like it, we were then very rudely told to get out then. It wasn't till after we found out there are multiple upstairs. Will never go bak

“Very bad service, awful place to spend time in”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

I have visited the place, the service was really bad, the staff were very arrogant, the manager was very rude, my time was ruined and I will never visit this place again.
