We visited Carlingford one Sunday. We stopped into PJs for a bite of lunch. Despite it being extremely busy we were ushered to a table quickly. I had cod and chips my partner had the steak burger and chips. Tasty pub grub reasonably priced.

Sorry - we don't know either. Our daughter's partner took us there when we visited for the weekend and I know he didn't book, but that's not to say you can't - give them a ring!
