    Two of us went to PJ's for a beverage and a bite to eat before heading to our next thing and we were short on time. I'd booked a table online earlier that day (super easy). We really enjoyed our medium rare steaks, as well as the veg and chips. We were in and out in about 40 mins which was impressive! And the service was great.

    Great location and style of pub. There seemed to be some confusion that when ordering food you needed utensils. A number of people had to go to the Bar and ask after receiving their meals. Maybe just provide everyone with utensils would solve the problem. But overall an enjoyable evening. Thank you

    Way too noisy. We booked our table which is allocated at a corner but other patrons who were drinking only keep on putting their drinks on our table! I dont like it. No regulation in the restaurant.

    The service was horrible. We had a 4:30pm booking and without previous warning was told of a $50 min purchase per person. After saying that was ok, immediately after payment informed us the kitchen would not be opening till 15 mins before then end of our booking time. Although a manager did come out to try to resolve the situation, if handled properly from the start would not have been a problem. Will not be attending again.

    Excellent food and service. The reason this is 3 stars is the 1 hour time limit, although I do understand why it exists.
