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 wish to thank you so very much for the excellent planning of Sara and Michaels wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect. The staff were so polite and courteous and nothing was too much trouble. The food was divine. We all had a great time and it will be a day we will cherish forever. I would highly recommend the Duke to anyone wanting the perfect day for their wedding. You are a star and we cannot thank you enough. Many thanks Susan and Peter Wilson (Bride’s parents)
