Always a great sporting venue with equally good drinks at a good price. Although can sometimes get very busy depending on the match, when it's not so busy, you get table service which is fantastic and don't miss a second of the match queuing. Keep it up

Loved murphys bar! The staff were so accommodating and went out of their way to help in anyway they could, they organised a table with balloons food and jugs of cocktails. The food was amazing and I highly recommend them to anyone who visits.

We were staying next door at the Premier Inn so this was handy. Friendly accommodating staff and a reasonable range of drinks and it does do food. We only had a bacon sandwich which was thick slices of bread which overpowered the small amount of bacon. Didn't encourage us to try anything else.

I love this bar, the staff are always so friendly. You don't have to be a sport fan to go here. I tend to go here before heading to the high street for a night out and usually on the way back too.

Visited as part of a hen weekend with 11 friends. Staff could not have done more for us or made us feel more welcome. They were very friendly and went way above and beyond our expectations to ensure we had a great night. Before our arrival (which we had pre booked) they decorated a table with balloons ect which we... More

This bar is right next door to the hotel and perfect to start the night off. Plus near the train station. There is lots of space and seats out side in the sun. We ordered some side dishes good and quick.

Went into murphys bar with my boyfriend for a quiet drink. Ordered a glass of rose wine which is what I always drink when i go for a night out. It tasted like it had gone off & didn't smell like rose. After 1 sip I explained to the barman how it didn't taste or smell right... His response was... More

Myself and my 17 year old daughter who has autism popped in here for a quick snack. The woman behind the bar asked for ID even though I was only buying soft drinks. I explained we had just gone in for a bite to eat and told us to go and sit in the corner. Needless to say, we didn't... More

Sorry you feel that my staff member was rude. We have three female staff members all who have been with us for over two years. If your daughter looked under 25 she would have been asked for ID. Check 25 is pub policy wether you are eating or not or the drink you buy is alcoholic or not as unfortunately... More

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!
