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.

Called in here for a couple of drinks before heading out to watch the rally. Welcome host and good atmosphere. Good selection of real ales and others. Live music on the Saturday afternoon and we wished we had stayed longer.

I can't associate with a single one of these mediocre reviews... We came across Scruffy Murphys by accident but we certainly weren't disappointed. The bar staff were friendly & efficient, customers entertaining, drinks reasonably priced, owner attentive (thank you!!). Infact, we had a couple of drinks in here before eating then headed straight back afterwards for live entertainment by way... More
