We called in for a sweet slice & a coffee after an appointment close by ... there was no one behind the bar where the coffee machine was & I had to ask a lady who was sitting nearby if they were still serving coffee. She didn't sound very enthusiastic & I felt as though I had interupted her break... More

I ate here recently for the first time and can find nothing to fault. The food was beautifully cooked and generous and the service was prompt and friendly. It's a lovely place to sit looking over the river and it's quiet too. Will definitely be back.

The Clubs of Marlborough have struggled with this restaurant since its inception. Having eaten there on a number of occasions (mainly due to being a member and trying to support it) all we could say is the menu and presentation still leaves a lot to be desired as food seems to be not much different than the Bistro next door....

We went to the Taylor Restaurant before a Show. Although ,we had booked to allow plenty of time, courses were very slow coming out. Our Entree arrived very promptly as did our drinks, but then there was a 42 minute wait for our Mains. The Waitresses were friendly and attentive and the food was well presented and tasty. It was...

We were using a birthday voucher. Started badly when the reservation we had made earlier that day was not in the system. Despite the restaurant being completely empty this seemed to cause some angst. Got seated and were served promptly. Not a great range on the menu - not really any different from what you can order in the main... More

We recently had a meal at the Taylor Restaurant. We were pleased to see the menu had changed and had new options to choose from. Our main was really good although the steak was probably medium rather than medium rare. The dessert was stunning and we would happily go there again just for the dessert. They are working on improving... More

Been to Taylor Room several times over the years and been through various Chefs, menu themes and changes. Went last week and discovered it was just the same. Food is better but overpriced for the venue. i.e. $20 for Caesar Salad...( also spelt incorrectly on menu! ) there is just no ambience. ie. small candle on table./no even one flower... More

A few years ago the proprietor of the motel we were staying at recommended that we eat at the Clubs of Marlborough. We took him up on his suggestion and have enjoyed meals there on each of our subsequent visits to Blenheim. The meals are very reasonably priced, are generous and well cooked. Whilst not extensive the menu provided a... More

Buffet dinner meal for a friend's birthday. In fact there were others celebrating birthdays as well so the noise level was high and speeches very difficult to hear. Food great - especially the ham and apple crumble. Staff attentive and even went and found us some ice cream to go with our dessert. Only recommendation is that bread & butter... More
