An above average eating place for an airport with the benefit of a very friendly welcome from Roy. I had the burger and fries which was good enough. All in all worth the walk

We checked in here for beer while we were waiting for our flights to different cities. The pub is nice. They have good selection for beer and spirits. I did not try try their food, but I guess it might good too.

Nice place for those who like burgers and beer. The smoking room inside the pub. Staff are very good and prices are reasonable. Special offers are interesting.

As a note, Airports naturally have a captive audience so there princes are inevitably higher and quality lower than a typical restaurant (with very few exceptions - though none I have encountered). As such, I compare Murphy's with other Airport restaurants, accounting for this. In that light, this is a top pick at AMS. Murphy's is a solid place to... More

Dropped in for a pint of Murphy's. Shame the one male member of staff behind the bar couldn't be bothered to move from one spot and serve people in the order they arrived. It's not rocket science - any good bartender knows who to serve next. Gave up and left after 6m minutes waiting

I had been told about this pub before I went to Amsterdam and I am so pleased we visited, it’s very quirky for an airport pub. The selection of beers and food was brilliant and very well priced.

With a good bar and decent food, Murphy's tries to create the ambience of a genuine neighborhood pub. Not bad for a spot in an airport with its large bar, good selection of beer and tasty bar snacks. It is a good place to relax between flights with attentive and pleasant servers. A major drawback is the smoking lounge with... More

This was the third time in Murphys Bar and while the last two visits 4 and 5 years ago we have to say this will be our last .We found the bar had not changed at all and we could smell the smoke billowing out from the smoke room by the side of the public bar. What had changed was... More
