Great place for fish supper

The food is first class, the owner is very friendly, it's nothing fancy so if your looking for silver service you will be disappointed, but if you looking for great tasting home cooked food with a friendly atmosphere Murphy's is the place to go, we had scampi and monk fish 😋😋😋😆 really tasty... read more

We stopped in on a Sunday morning for tea and light snack. Service was quick and staff friendly. Nice atmosphere and ambiance. Good value for the money.

We had to wait an half hour because the place was full. But is was worth the wait. Had some great food, perfectly prepared and it felt that the fish had just come out the ocean.

Fresh seafood, excellently prepared, seductive desserts, great service and atmosphere. It doesn't look like it, but this place deserves a michelin star!

Decent enough people, but can't say the same about the food. Chips were slightly above average, and the fish was far below average, particularly considering it is based in a fishing port. Fish not battered, just poorly covered in breadcrumbs, very bland and wasn't fresh at all. Unfortunately, I couldn't recommend.
