We had dinner at Murphy's last night, pretty busy but worth the wait. Not noisy and good value Wish I'd left room for the apple pie!

Fish and chips were delicious and big enough portion to share. Cottage pie was also very good. Service was fairly quick and the food was hot and well prepared.

We had dinner here and the food exceeded our expectations. Our Irish Lamb stew and College Pie were both excellent. The service was very attentive. The whole place was decorated with golf memorabilia.
