Modern cuisine, an exciting beverage list and warm, friendly service, in the heart of Marlborough's renowned wine growing region. With a focus on seasonal, local produce, Arbour offers an a la carte menu or a 'Just Feed Me' option where the chefs will send you three, four or 'MANY' courses reflecting the ingredients they are featuring that day. Only two minutes from Marlborough Airport and Renwick, or just an eight minute drive from Blenheim.
