This is the only place in Darjeeling which gives you an authentic feeling of an English pub- located in the heart of Darjeeling near clock tower/ post office it is a pub where drinks are plenty. Local Bands too play music and if you are lucky then you might find the celebrated Bengali film director, actor, singer and theatre person... More

A run of the mill watering hole in Darjeeling , the decor is nice and the bar fare is the same as any other place . The barkeep seemed to be terrified of the lady who owns the place . All in all an average experience .

Having been in Varanasi and very hard to find a beer this was a great find on our first day in Darjeeling! Old pub feel cheap beer and stereo sounds!! Worth a look for a great attempt at a British boozer!!!

The bar is pretty small with four five tables to accommodate guests. The pub carries a lot of heritage but I felt they are not really using the heritage to their benefit. I had asked for gin & tonic, and when I asked the waiter for a lime slice, the bar attender showed a lot of concern back to the... More

Excellent Atmosphere, Good Food but the staffs are horrible. The staffs judge people by their money.

Joey's is a wonderful escape for the noise and crowds. A cosy old fashion Pub built for the poms back in the day.

The interior of the pub was completely changed. The ambience of the new place was not up to mark. Heard that, it was because of a fire. If so, it's understandable. Yet, we had the best night in Darjeeling and love joeys for it.....

Alas !!! I could not meet Puran Daju, the founder of this pub. He passed away this Feb. Located right beside Rink Mall, this place has an old world charm. Don't expect anything funky here. Liquor is pretty cheap here, but they don't serve any food. I would like to suggest them to start serving some finger foods.

Reached there with a lot of expectation but was rudely shocked to see that its a tiny space with 4 tables and a separate smoker zone and a bar. Nothing else. No music no buzz. Felt like a place dedicated to hard core boozer who comes to drown themselves in booze and more booze. Big turn off...
