WITH less than four feet (1.22m) facing George Street, Scruffy Murphy’s is said to have the smallest frontage of a pub in Sydney.
The pub, originally known as the Goulburn Hotel, was purchased by Sydney brewery, Tooheys Limited in 1930. The brewery replaced what was a large three storey corner pub, with a new two storey hotel and three shops in 1934. The pub’s name was changed in later years from the Goulburn Hotel to the Irished themed, Scruffy Murphys.
