    Wonderful, friendly service. Food was well priced and tasted great. Steak was a little overcooked but pepper sauce was excellent. This was a team business lunch. Thank you so much for being flexible and even offering to split the bill. Definitely be back

    Cosy top notch Irish Pub ????????. Food was excellent. We ordered the Irish pie, the Pork sausages plus a steak and chips from the kids menu which comes with a free juice and an ice cream for under 14. Service was smooth and fast. Food was warm, fresh and delicious. There was a sweet band playing almost non stop. Overall, great experience. We are definitely coming back ????.

    My colleague's steak was supposed to be medium rare but turned out too well. That's the only issue. Otherwise we had an awesome time. Will be going again.

    This Irish pub offered a great experience overall. The food is excellent and they have a large choice of different drinks to choose from. The live music was a lovely touch and very enjoyable; however, once the band was finished the pub played regular music on the charts. (Irish folk music would've been nicer and made the pub more ambient) Overall, it was a very good experience and we will be back. Thank you.

    The food was great and we really enjoyed it, however, the service waiter was not happy and didn't want to serve us. I was unsure if she had maybe had a bad day.

    The fish and chips was so-so. Batter wasn't good nor crispy. But the Irish stew always made my day. Great soda bread! Wanted to have Irish coffee but they ran out of coffee...

    The staff were attentive and most helpful. The food delicious. BUT when my friends and I go to an Irish Pub we expect to hear Irish music not necessarily live, but recorded Irish music! We were told to come back at 6pm for live music! We were there for lunch not dinner!

    Some of the meals were quite bland. It was quite loud with the large group of people next to us as well as the live band playing.

About the restaurant

What's the 'craic'?

Set in the heart of Sydney, this classic Irish boozer offers the taste of Ireland in the CBD. The warm glow of the open fire and the traditional Irish music echoing transports you and that’s before you’ve even had your first pint of Guinness! As daylight fades the ‘craic’ begins, order up a pint and get yourself a serve of P.J’s signature seafood chowder, finished traditionally with cream and warm Irish soda bread.

Get to this glorious local aye!

Best dish: Shay’s Irish pork sausages served with creamy mash, caramelised onion and gravy.
