One of the better Irish pubs in a city that has no shortage of them, Matt Murphy’s is well worth a journey into the Brookline outlands. The Guinness poured here is sublime, but what makes it such a hit among locals is its grub. The fish and chips (served wrapped in newspaper, natch) is deservedly famous and the shepherd’s pie superb. The kitchen even makes its own ketchup. If it’s not as youth-oriented as some of the city’s Irish bars, Murphy’s still gets its customers moving once the music starts—if they’re capable of moving after dinner, that is.
