    We had the best Mother’s Day dinner at Murphy’s. Amazing friendly efficient staff. Food was generous served and bloody tasty. Definitely will be back soon.

    Food and ambiance was spot on! The only trouble was when we got there they could not see my booking on their list. Luckily they still made a table for us although not the table with the view that I requested for Mother’s Day but still thankful they made room for us.

    We had booked a table, however were seated in the noisy front bar for dinner. It was impossible to hear anything except drunken men. I wouldn't recommend.

    Food was late due to it being St Paddy's day, but that was already expected. We did have a booking, however, we were let in and found a table on our own (understandable again, due to the sheer stress!). Will dine here again as it always has an inviting ambience.

    We went there for St Patrick's day. Very disappointing. If it wasn't for a few patrons dressed up you would not have thought it was St Patrick's. Terrible music and not a sound of Irish music. Should have had a muso pumping out traditional music. Sickening smell of cugarette smoke at the entrance. The waitresses were good and friendly. Food was ok.

    We had a fabulous experience mostly due to the waitress who served us. She was outstanding and made us feel so extremely comfortable and happy. We had the Guinness pie which is always yummy. I wish I could remember her name. It's so nice eating out again. Thanks

    Menu wasn’t extensive and 1 meal came out with raw vegetables that were supposed to be steamed. Meals took a long time to come but it wasn’t busy. We were sitting right beside the kitchen so could see when means were and weren’t coming out

    The steak was average. Parmy was good. Make sure you book a table before hand. Just a bit of a wait for food. And a bit noisey in the dinning area.

    Good value parmi's on parmi night, although the traditional parmis could do with some more tomato sauce on them as they were a bit dry.

    I made a booking for a Friday Night 7pm which wasn't found when we arrived but the dining room was only a third full so that was okay. We were seated by a nonchalant waitress. Waited. Waited. Waited. Ordered drinks. Waited. Waited. Waited. Waited...... you get the idea.... lots of waiting. We then waited more to have our order taken. We were told the Pizza Kitchen wasn't open tonight. So we ordered other items to then be told after 15 minutes of ordering that half of what we ordered wasn't available. After what seemed like an eternity we got one of our 3 entrees. We were so hungry the 3 of us shared it. FINALLY we got some more dishes with the final main arriving 20 minutes after the others. From when we arrived to when we we all had our meals was about an hour and a half!! It is a pub for goodness sake , not a fine dining restaurant! There were a constant stream of wait staff heading to the bar area which makes me think that priority was being given to Bar Patrons. Why? Are they more drunk and impatient?? No wonder the dining room was two thirds empty. Oh yes... the food... Bland, Boring and no better than If we had gone to the local Burger place. At least if we had done that we would have eaten at least an hour ealier than we did and it would have had more flavour. We didn't order dessert. Couldn't bare more waiting. This was our first visit and certainly our last to Murphy's. What a let down.

    Great rooftop area, with an extra level for those of us who still smoke!! Generous and tasty meals. Parmas were delicious - we had the Mexican. Service was great, however, they could not find our booking - perhaps this site isn't monitored enough? It wasn't a problem, but during busy times it could be.
