  about Muddy Murphy Holdings

With the aim of creating an environment in which people will sense an immediate familiarity and feel very much at home, Muddy Murphy Holdings opened its first pub, Muddy Murphy’s in April 1996. The outlet was an instant hit with both locals and expatriates and is now firmly established as one of Singapore’s pub industry icons.

The Company has placed great emphasis on developing truly authentic outlets, sparing no expense. To achieve this, Muddy Murphy's and The Penny Black were designed and fabricated to scale in Ireland and the UK respectively, prior to being shipped to Singapore, where they were expertly re-assembled by specialist foreign pub fitters. The company has also added two Prince of Wales Backpacker Pubs (in Boat Quay and Little India) and The Manhattan Pizza Co., making it a total of four brands in its portfolio.


Muddy Murphy’s was designed and built to scale in Dublin, Ireland 18 years ago. It was then dismantled and shipped to Singapore in six 40-foot containers and assembled at its first location at the basement of Orchard Hotel Shopping Arcade by specialist Irish Pub fitters. In November 2013, the pub was relocated, along with many elements of the original décor, into the heart of Orchard Road at TripleOne Somerset.

In addition to a wide selection of premium wines and spirits, Muddy’s, as it is affectionately known, serves up 7 international beers on tap including Kilkenny™ (a creamy red ale) and Draught Guinness® (Ireland’s most famous of beers). The menu includes traditional, hearty pub grub such as Beef and Guinness Pie and Irish Stew. Weekends are a treat as Muddy’s serves up Singapore’s best-known Sunday Roast, between 11.30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Muddy’s has been noted by many as THE place to catch live sport telecasts. On a match day, the atmosphere is absolutely electric whether it is a game of rugby, football, tennis or Formula 1. Coupled with great live music on Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons, by talented local and foreign bands, Muddy’s is the perfect place for an end-of-week party!



Located at the Raffles Place entrance to Boat Quay, one of Singapore's most colourful and vibrant river front entertainment zones, The Penny Black Victorian London Pub is without doubt your quintessential Victorian Public House. Like its sister pub, The Penny Black was designed and built to scale in England by master craftsmen and shipped to Singapore piece by piece where it was re-assembled in 1998.

In addition to a wide selection of premium wines and spirits, The Penny Black serves up 7 international beers on tap and is Singapore’s only English Pub serving Old Speckled Hen on draught.

Food at The Penny Black is home-cooked, providing hearty meals all day long with bar food available till late. Tuck into traditional English favourites such as Fish ‘n’ Chips with Mushy Peas, Bangers ‘n’ Mash, Toad in the Hole and a mouth-watering Full English Breakfast.

No English pub is complete without the sounds of cheers by avid sports fans. Be it football, rugby, or the Grand Prix, The Penny Black becomes THE place to be along Boat Quay for watching ‘live’ matches and races. Catch your favourite sports on top quality flat screens out by the riverside or indoors.

Muddy Murphy Holdings’ first quick service concept, The Manhattan Pizza Co. brings authentic New York-style pizza slices to Singapore. Hand made from scratch with the freshest ingredients, the pizzas seek to change how Singapore looks at fast food. Each slice is a whopping 10 inches and a whole pizza often drops jaws at 20 inches.

The Manhattan Pizza Co. currently operates the kitchen at Prince of Wales Boat Quay and is exploring expansion and franchising opportunities.
