Description: We are essex's premier sports bar. As our name suggests we are predominantly a sports bar but we also serve good quality home cooked food freshly prepared on the premises. To all reviewers who start with "this isn't a resteraunt" firstly I'd say Doh! The clues in the name!

We visited the bar to watch the football and was made to feel welcome by the staff and the locals. Very friendly atmosphere,and the place was packed. While there it was a must to try their new menu,impressive,and a good assortment of choice. Definitely be going back!!!!

Got Attitude from the moment I arrived and politely asked which both I had booked from a barmaid(the one with white stripe in her hair), her attitude continued throughout the day. When I phoned to book I asked if I could reserve a booth and can you... More

Visited this pub on a couple of occasions while staying at the Premier Inn (right next door). Good place to chill and watch the football on a Saturday afternoon. It got quite busy on a Friday/Saturday night, staff were all friendly enough as were the "locals". Worth popping in if your in that area.

I had breakfast here this morning. As a coeliac I am extremely limited to what I can eat. I ordered a small breakfast but knew I would be unable to have sausages for certain given the rusk. The service I received was second to none! Once I explained I was coeliac I was given gold star treatment. Staff were knowledgeable... More

If you fancy a tasty weekend breakfast, Murphys is the place to be. Fantastic menu (I had the classic full English) and cooked to perfection, with lovely fresh coffee & tea, etc. Friendly staff and world class customer service make for a great atmosphere. The morning's newspapers are available to read, as is SKY sports news etc in the background... More

Title kinda summarises it. It middle of the town, near the station, so a meeting place for me and my mates. I go there every few months and like it, never an issue.

Went to Murphys for pre drinks before going to Sugar hut last weekend. Spoke to the managers in advance who were so helpful and organised drinks to be ready for us, a booth and decorations for the hen party. They also had no problems with our request of having a stripper as long as it was past 9pm which was... More
