We've been going to the Morphett Arms and recommending it to friends for over 40 years. The renovations have done nothing for for this venue except to make it more expensive. We always used to say the food was excellent, and very good value. Now we are paying top prices for rubbish food that is churned out of a deep... More

On our visits to Adelaide we often used to go to the morphett arms for an evening meal and were never disappointed with the food and service until now. The service was very slow and food nothing special. The salad bar was a let down. After our main meal we waited for the waitress to come back to see what... More

We waited a long time to be served when the dining room was not especially busy, when the food arrived it was OK. This hotel used to offer good service and good food, and needs to get back properly on track.

Good service, Meal prompt , friendly staff. under renovations at the present time, so a bit difficult to find dining room. No too keen on the very plain boards used to screen off where work was being done, they could have made it look better. Time will tell if these renovations are worth the wait.

Really just another 'pub' with pub style meals but for a reasonable feed with very good service, this place beats other local pubs. Standard selection of meals eg fish and chips, schnitzel, roast of the day etc, good size serves and salad bar included.

Despite renovations, food still excellent as is the service. Always seems to have many customers enjoying themselves. Salad bar good, maybe a little to much dressing on some dishes. If you haven't been there for a while, try it, you won't be disappointed.
