Restaurant & Bar
The Furneaux Bar
The legendary bar at Furneaux Lodge is an icon in Marlborough and has been the most popular place to stop in for a drink in Queen Charlotte Sound for three decades. The Furneaux Bar embodies the spirit of the sounds, a venue for quality casual dining and socialising in a premium yet egalitarian environment. It's a special place where local boaties, sailors, lodge guests and the sounds community come together.
Cosy and comfortable, having been completely renovated to the style of the original interior of the lodge when Captain Howden built it. Furneaux combines the tradition and relaxing environment of the lodge with great food and modern amenities to give you a unique and memorable night out.
The menu in the bar has a well earned reputation for serving fresh, tasty and satisfying meals to travellers for decades. The famous Furneaux Burger was the number one choice of over 3000 people last summer - and always gets a rave review, while new for this summer Chef is serving up a choice of three unique and interesting platters; for the gourmet, the nibblers or the imbibers.
The wine list is more extensive and carefully crafted than ever, with a range Marlborough wines complemented by regional specialities from Otago, Hawkes Bay and Australia.
