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 .
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.

Joey's pub has become iconic with Darj specially with its affable owner Puran at the helm.Unfortunately,Puran is no more & the place is closed for now but will be back on shortly,hopefully.
