Dining

The Marlborough Lodge's cuisine is prepared as delicately as our guests are pampered.

Our Head Chef and his team specialise in showcasing Marlborough's gourmet produce. They know how the food has been produced and understand how to bring out the most subtle of flavours to ensure a mouthwatering dining experience you won't want to miss.

Begin the day with our continental or cooked breakfast, then wind down in the afternoon with delicious canapés served in the sunny courtyard in front of the outdoor fire, followed by an fresh, seasonal a la carte dinner menu all of which is included in your nightly tariff.  Harvest Restaurant at The Marlborough Lodge also offers an excellent selection of Marlborough, New Zealand and international wines which are an additional charge.
