Took my elderly parents here for my fathers birthday. We had one of their specials which was a choice of two Seafoods. We chose the fish and prawns. The waitress was very cheerful and had to come back a few times because we couldn't make a decision. The salad bar was well stocked and had a variety of hot and...

Popped in on impulse as had heard place was being renovated. Had a beautiful meal will return for sure. Would avoid the lounge as has limited meal options. Venue was clean and staff very friendly, quick service at a reasonable price. Kangaroo filler was very nice

Over the past year have been to the Morphett Arms with my parents numerous times. Ideal place to meet as half way between our homes and had good reasonably priced menu. Went last night and disappointed. Thought we would eat in the lounge bar. Unfortunately the new menu did not have a lot that appealed to my elderly parents but...

We went with my brothers and my parents. We sat in the "new" lounge bar in a nice booth. The menu was sooo basic, seafood basket gone, beef schnitzel gone (standard pub fare I would have thought) I ordered a $20 pizza with Salmon & (Jumbo) Prawns !! There was one tiny segment of Prawn(NO jumbo here) on each piece...

New outdoor area, thumbs up. Middle bar, very practical. Staff friendly. Lounge bar menu very disappointing. Tapas style choices are ok, but for a meal in a relaxed area very limited to chilli dishes, chicken schnitty, pizza with sparse toppings and a couple of salads. If only I could have chosen from kids menu! If I had wanted chargrilled calamari,...

Expensive low grade food, drinks are also expensive following recent renovations, music too loud in dining areas where people are trying to converse. Was there for dinner with a large group and none of us were impressed and will not return despite being customers for several years. They are obviously trying to attract the in crowd but the price of...

Haven't had a meal at this hotel for a while and was pleasantly surprised with the refurbishment. Great courtyard area and the meals were quite large and a good price. No reservation was booked however it was a week night just after Christmas and found it very pleasant and will definitely return.

Went for dinner about a week before Christmas mainly to see what it was like after the renovations. Surrounding were ok but the traditional "Pub food" had been replaced by what i can only describe as "Arty Farty". The salad bar was now filled with not very appetising salads, my wife had a scotch fillet that appeared to have been...

Good value meals, large servings, simple pub meal but overall tasty and plentiful. Had a variety from pizza to curry, fish and chips and schnitzel, all came together and were well cooked. Not overly busy on a Wednesday night so easy to order food and drinks.

Hi Rob, Thankyou for taking the time to review the Morphett Arms. It sounds like you dined in our sports bar, so this is great to hear the process was simple and your variety of food came out with no issues. We hope you return to the Morphett Arms Soon.
