Dined here two consecutive nights while travelling for business. Barramundi one night, pork belly the next. The Barra was my favourite (excellent), but both very good - washed down with a pint of Kilkenny. Food, decor and friendly service made it a good experience.

After going outside to partake of a cigarette, I was refused entry back into the premises. At first I was told it was because the security guard had "seen me picking up cigarette butts from the floor". After asking to see his manager, I was told I was a liar therefore I asked to see the Premises Manager, who stated,... More

They do not wont older people there so make up ridiculous reasons to ask them to leave. Will never go there again. I am disgusted with this place.

Hi there Janlan66, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, however, we are going to have to politely disagree, if you look thru our photo albums online or pop in any other time, you will find a very wide range of age, race & religion! We have an open door policy and welcome all! I'm afraid there... More

While visiting Brisbane on Saturday we found this place so dropped in for a few Beers. Great atmosphere and a Muso started not long after we arrived. Not much to report as we didn't eat but one thing is you need to Roster a Swampy to pickup glasses and plates as this doesn't happen.

Great pub for a cheap lunch or drinks on a Friday afternoon after work. Happy hour 4 to 6 for $6.00 pints of Guinness is always a winner.

Ordered steak and was served chicken and when finally the steak arrived it was dry and tasted very average for the price. My wife ended up eating on her own and so did I. Not a nice way to have dinner together. The lady at the bar that took the order have a lot to learn about hospitality. The only... More

Hi Peter, Apologies on the delay of our reply. We are very disappointed to hear you had a negative experience with us! We have been extremely busy over the festive season, but this is no excuse for the meal ordeal, we would love a chance to set things right, as this is definitely not the norm here at Murphy's. If...
