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
I can't say enough "thank you's" to you for your guidance, help and patience in the planning of Lauren & Toms wedding earlier this month. The wedding day was perfect in every respect from the start to the finish and many people commented what fabulous, well presented food they had at the reception. Even the weather came up trumps on the day as it was one of those beautiful hot sunny, windless days that we have in Northland, and everyone enjoyed the magnificent and stunning sun set from the deck of the Duke. Lauren lives in London so I had to do most of the planning on her behalf, however it was everything she wanted and with your assistance which was above and beyond what was expected, it made the organising so much easier. The Duke of Marlborough thoroughly deserves the reputation they have. Well done ! Once again the Duke did not disappoint us as this is the second wedding we have had there and both have exceeded our best expectations. Many thanks, Sallie
