Have been to Murphys numerous times for both beer and football and for food and has not missed a step at any point, always friendly, always happy, foods always great and a beer is a beer! Will be back more than once, best pub in Brentwood by a clear mile!

We had a good evening with table service and good food. This was better than expected. The waitress was quite efficient considering the number of folk in on a weekday. Very friendly.

I use this place every time I stay at the Premier Inn next door. Great atmosphere and I can thoroughly recommend the gourmet burger.

I love Murphys, we live 2 mins walk from murphys, and whenever we fancy watching any sport / just meeting up for a few drinks in a nice atmosphere then Murphys is the place to go. pretty much 30seconds walk if that from Brentwood Train station means its very handy. The food was lovely, and decent priced. The only reason... More

This is one of my locals and I love it. Always a good atmosphere and usually male-dominated due to the sports! More TVs than I've ever seen in a pub, so great for your fave sporting events. Friendly staff!

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.

Thank Cherie D

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.
