Congratulations to the team at Giesen Wines on a hugely successful evening at Arbour last month. $30,000 was raised for Isaac Giesen's 'The Blue Rower' which donates towards New Zealand agencies dealing with depression and suicide. 


Isaac Giesen lost his Aunty and two close friends to suicide. In their honour, he’s setting out to be the first New Zealander to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean. It’s widely-regarded as one of the world’s most intense physical challenges, yet the biggest obstacle he faces is a mental one. Against the odds and against the weather, he’s rowing to raise money for the fight against depression.

Order a COURAGEOUS BLOSSOMS dessert at Arbour during October, and we’ll donate FIVE DOLLARS to Marlborough’s Breast Cancer Dragon Boat Team ‘SIMPLY THE BREAST’.  

Available to all guests dining at Arbour.  Guests wishing to visit simply to try the Courageous Blossom dessert are welcome to earlier, or later, in the evening. Bookings essential. Supported by Hedgerows Strawberries and Thymebank.

Simply The Breast is an incorporated society whose primary aim is to assist with the rehabilitation of breast cancer survivors by providing an exercise regime and peer support for this most debilitating disease.

What an amazing event the Hospice Marlborough foundation committee pulled off Saturday, 30 July 2016.

John Collett, Laurie Saunders, Janet Enright and their amazing team put in tens of thousands of hours planning.

It was the greatest honour so far for Arbour to have them ask Bradley Hornby to create the food concept for the event and for our team to be able to volunteer for a week to make it happen. 


July 01, 2016

This annual event is always a RIOT! This year we raised over $14,000, I'll admit with Bradley and I standing over the crowd and not letting them leave until they had hit the target! The evening always sells out early due to the passion of it's members so if you want to be a part of 2017's rowdy, exciting dinner and auction book early!

The Renwick Volunteer Fire Brigade and Arbour teamed up to raise money for Renwick School with a hilarious lazy, long lunch. The proceeds from this event will go towards creating emergency kits for families enrolled at the school. To donated to a future event email

The struggling families cooking classes were a real success. It was great to team up with local nutritionist Emily Hope and spend time with these kids. Great photos, sponsors and recipes are available on the link below.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2016 Food for Change Street Party in support of the Cancer Society Marlborough. We raised $17,544 for our local branch. Outstanding result! We are so proud and lucky to be part of this wonderful community. Please take some time to look through our legendary local sponsors for this event.


December 30, 2015

In 2015 we raised almost $50,000 for local charities through our restaurant events and local voucher sponsorship. We have our events planned for 2016 so if you see a charity that is close to your heart we'd love you to book a seat or donate an auction item. 


We choose to do this because we love to help but on our level of salary we can either give a small donation annually to a charity or we can use our venue and skills to create events that can really make a difference in our local community.  It has always been our dream to have a small restaurant that is active within a tight and loving community.


Thanks for being our community Marlborough!
