We stopped off at Morgenhof for a light lunch and a cool drink on a very hot day. The chicken salad and deep fried feta salad starters were both delicious and good value. The staff were very friendly and service was excellent.

Stopped here for Saturday lunch. Excellent choice. The choice of food whilst not large is more than adequate. The platter we chose was well presented and more than adequate for 2 persons. Good value for money and service with a smile.
