I won't talk about beer in this review as I concentrate on their lunch menu. Murphy's offers great value for money if you are hungry want to have lunch, as their lunch menu gets you sorted for $12. I tend to visit the place a...More

Decor and atmosphere are great. Two for the price of 1 pork ribs $21 is great value in anyone's language. The cost of the drinks (a cider and a stout) $25 was a bit of a shock. Great staff who didn't get in our face...More

Good pub fare here, and the evening meal deals are good value. On Mondays, 2 for 1 mains, Tuesday is 2 for 1 ribs. Ribs are delicious. Other nights have other deals, the food is not fancy pub food, the value is hard to beat.

Popped in here for some lunch. They do a $12 lunch menu which has a good selection and you can have a $5 beer. Food was good although a bit strange having half a plate of salad with your fish and chips.

This is a great pub to catch up with friends old and new - particularly on a Friday night when they do $10 beer jugs. There's a good number of tables/chairs on the street, well-sheltered and with grunty gas heaters when it's cold. Much later...More
