Welcome to The Duke of Marlborough Restaurant
Located right on the waterfront in Russell. Serving up delectable delights for lunch and dinner the Duke of Marlborough Restaurant is at the heart of this historical hotel. The menu showcases locally sourced seasonal produce, presenting a new take on classic favourites.
Being surrounded by water the menu is influenced by the sea and all it has to offer - from our local Waikare Inlet Oysters or perhaps our oven roasted market fish to the timeless fish and chips served in a crisp beer batter with hand cut chips - simply divine! Carnivores will not be disappointed, dishes include our classic slow roasted lamb shoulder or Grass Fed “Savannah” Eye Fillet - there is something for everyone.
Every menu contains vegetarian options and we can cater to most dietary requirements. We have an extensive beverage list with over 100 wines and 30 beers all of which are specially chosen to compliment our menu.
Our restaurant is open 7 days a week from 11.30am to 9pm - reservations recommended

What our customers say
Firstly, I wanted to say a big thank you to Ida! From the initial contact many months ago right through to the day before, you have been nothing but attentive and fantastic. You catered to any queries Shae or I had and were always so quick to respond. Working with you in the lead up to our special day was nothing but a pleasure. I also wanted to thank Tim and his wonderful team on the day. They were on beck and call the whole evening, the glasses were always topped up, the meal service was great and the set up and clearing of tables was spot on. I’ve heard nothing but praises from all our guests about the service and food from your team so thank you, you did such a great job. Can you please also pass on my thanks to anyone else that helped out behind the scenes, whether it was in the kitchen, housekeeping or in the office. Everyone that played a part in our special day deserves a cheers from us! The main thing Shae and I wanted was a laid back, stress free and enjoyable evening with our beautiful family and friends and this is exactly what we had. Everyone had such a great time and that mainly falls back on you guys and the service you offer at the Duke of Marlborough so from Shamus, myself and our parents, I extend our thanks.
