This was the first pub we saw after searching for a good 45 minutes for a pub just your typical Irish pub really in a good location as it is in the city centre and they play good music. However 2 of us got the same lager but one smelt and tasted stronger a lot more than the other so... More

Busy old fashioned style pub. When we visited they had fabulous entertainment on. Good old Irish sing song coupled with a great pint of Guinness. Bar staff very efficient even under pressure were very pleasant too.

I always enjoy a visit to Scruffy Murphys. Despite it's name, it is clean and the beer is well kept. The one lady behind the bar worked nineteen-to-the-dozen, as she was the only person on duty at the time. She coped brilliantly. Very enjoyable.

Superb pub, clean, great atmosphere and great service, the lady behind the bar has worked her socks off as she is the only one serving yet service was pretty quick, also, as the pub does not do food st the moment, she let us bring in our own while we drank, excellent all round

This pub is very near the Winter Gardens and has a lovely warm feeling to it, lovely friendly staff mixed with locals and concert goer's, Status Quo were playing in Blackpool that night so they were playing their music in the pub for all the fans, nice and bright with clean toilets.

Visited Blackpool at the weekend and due to bad weather, came into scruffy murphy's for a drink and didn't want to leave! Great banter, great atmosphere and a fantastic live singer who got everyone joining in. Next time I'll stay longer and enjoy the great atmosphere! A nice friendly little pub.
