“The worst place to party”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

The music was terrible, it was terribly mixed and terribly out dated. Considering Sydney has such strict drinking laws most of the people in there were so drunk they were dribbling and falling about the place. I would advise anyone that goes there to ensure they have had a few too many drinks, going almost sober was a big mistake on my behalf. Downstairs everyone was on drugs and the bouncers do nothing. Quite disappointed I paid to enter such a dive! WORST BAR IN SYDNEY!

“Good value”
Reviewed 12 January 2014 via mobile

Although this pub doesn't serve coke products, the food is cheap and great value for money. Avoid on Fridays around 6pm unless you like busy. The inside is a tad dingy but the staff are fast and efficient

“Good for budget eat”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 via mobile

Went to scruffy murphys yesterday,always seems good value, you must go up to the bar and order, the restaurant is on 2nd floor,usually staffed by Irish girls I think backpackers.
They seemed to be polite and not over friendly but polite anyway.
I ordered bangers and mash,good value I got 3 sausages,mash potato and gravy,11.50, and cappuccino $3.00.
Yes as with self ordering you must collect your cutlery yourself too.
I think good value place, also free water fountain near cutlery.
