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...

Nice ambiance in the place. Had a wonderful time with my friend over beer. It's a small place, but I kind of liked it for the same reason :P But the rest-room is pathetic. Definitely need to improve on that.

We visited Joey's pub after a lot of recommendations. The place was so cozy and hosted only a handful of people at a time. It's décor is old-school and comforting. The place is perfect to hang out with friends over a pint of beer!

A must visit place. It's been renovated now, however when I first visited this place in December 2000 I fell in love with it. Alcohol from all over the world, dim lights, wooden tables. An all in all an amazing place and must visit. It's the best place to relax and unwind. It has a TV now and the seating... More
