Dirty tables and poor service in what's a really over priced pub. The whole place needs a make over, especially the bathrooms. Food was average.

This place is now grotty and tired. Seriously if you want to charge top dollar for pub food, surcharges for using paypass, credit card etc then perhaps the owners should spend money on a complete reno. Paint peeling, worn carpet, uneven floor surfaces, slow service is now the norm.

Pub was quiet and this may have to do with the poor service. The female behind the bar obviously didn't want to be at work or be in hospitality. Our meals sat on the kitchen counter for some time before we decided to collect them ourselves. Meals were OK but on the higher side given the poor service and lack... More

Wow what can I say about the amenities, did a bomb go off? I would never eat here after seeing that mess. Last visit to this pub.

Whilst the food and staff were good here, when you pay $9 for a schooner you would expect toilets to be better than a dodgy outback pub. I've seen better toilets in a third world country ! I would not recommend this place - many better options At Moore Park ( Fox Studios).

Enjoyed the Steak and Guiness Pie but such a small serve for such a big price compared to what you get at other Irish pubs!

My daughter and I had dinner there on Friday night before a show. We hadn't been to the area before and after a walk around I was drawn back to this pub because it seemed to have a great atmosphere and I felt comfortable being there. A security guard at the door made you feel that it was a safe... More

Met about 15 friends for tea, place was only about 1qtr full. We all ordered together , meals came out over 1 and a half hours some of the kids meals were last. Tables were very dirty, bats come to roost in the trees above the beer garden dropping you know what on people, had to move inside. Lots of... More

My husband and I were looking for a restaurant a bit quieter than the ones on the harbor. We started to walk back to our hotel and found PJ Gallagher's Pub. We found the place to be quite nice ~ in fact very quiet compared to the hustle and bustle of the harbor area. We both had the Chicken Parmi... More
