Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Scruffy Murphy's

Dismal-looking pub housed under the corner of a multi-storey car park; obviously a rock pub, but once inside you find a 'L'-shaped room decorated in more of an alehouse style. Seating is mostly on pew-type benches, but in one corner there is a slightly separate seating area between low-height partitions and a pool table can be found at the other end. Heavy / thrash metal on the jukebox, but not that loud in the early evening, although previous experience of walking past suggests this isn't always the case (especially when the basement rock club is operating). The solitary handpump appears to only be in sporadic use, so I went for the Shipyard Pale (£4.60) as the most appealing of the limited keg offerings.

An Irish themed pub but seems to be more interested in scary Devil rock music with lots of gravely-voiced heavy metal nonsense being churned out of the jukie. Seems ideal for petouli-oiled long haired yetis to shake heads and make horned-devil handsigns to. 2 handpumps serving Hobgob and Trooper, naturally. Spliknot and Korn fans will love it. If they're old enough to go in that is. Ah well, 'Tip toe, to the front row, of the Korn show...'
