Review of Scruffy Murphy's

Scruffy Murphy's
Ranked #34 of 237 Nightlife in Sydney
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Having recieved rave reviews from friends about this bar I was expecting not a posh place but somewhere you could relax and enjoy a night out. No such luck. Within an hour the barman(after serving us our 3rd drink) told the bouncer we were intoxicated and needed to be removed. Funny considering he had no problem serving us 2 minutes previous. We promptly got removed from the premises and even the bouncers admitted we were in the right but they're was nothing they could do. Barmen/bouncers in sydney just think they own the place and throw their weight around as such. If you want a hassel free night avoid this bar because if you try and have a good night it turns into you and your friends been unceremoniously removed from the building. A disgusting way to treat paying patrons.

My friends and I came from interstate and were attracted to this place as we heard there was a comedy gig on. $10 entry and you get a free drink. We really enjoyed ourselves and even got to talk to the comedians after. It was really well done and because the crowd was small it was a great opportunity to join in with what they were saying! Top place!

We popped in on our way into the city for drinks & dinner and decided to try it for food, we couldn't believe how tasty and good value for money it was, (we even came again on the second night!) for 3people our food bill was $40 with 3 soft drinks. quite busy on both nights, not sure what it's like at night time for drinks but passed it on the way back to our hotel and it was always busy!

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!

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
