Our Restaurant

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

We loved everything about our wedding at The Duke of Marlborough. The venue has such character and class and it suited our wedding style perfectly. Even without adding any styling, it is truly a stunning venue and location. The team were a breeze to work with as we added our own little touches for our wedding reception. The service from all the Duke staff was impeccable, and the food (as always) was divine. We had so many comments from our guests after our wedding about the outstanding food and wonderful service. Big thanks to Ida, Tim and the team for running such a smooth operation. We would do it all again in a heartbeat. - Chloe & Kent xx
