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 resturant is open 7 days a week from 11.30am to 9pm - reservations recommended

What our customers say

Having taking my partner to Russell for the first time and having an absolutely amazing dinner at the Duke we got talking to a staff member and well one thing lead to another and we ended up booking The Duke for our wedding reception. The wedding coordinator Ida Birch was amazing her local knowledge and help in organising a wedding was irreplaceable. The staff were amazing from organising accommodation to setting up the Ball room for the reception. The whole night went with out a hitch, the food was to die, for such an amazing menu to chose from. I would definitely recommend The Duke as a wedding reception. Such professional, friendly, genuine staff and an amazing historical location in such a beautiful part of New Zealand. Friends, family and ourselves had such an amazing unforgettable night.
