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.
