Menu


On board The River Queen, we serve fresh, hearty and delicious food, paired with premium beers and some of Marlborough's finest wines.

On the River Queen, the food and beverages are a big part of your river cruise experience. Choose finger food items to be shared with your guests throughout the cruise, or make one of our buffet meals centre-stage, as the sites and sounds of the Opawa River drift leisurely by.

Our menu reflects the seasons and the bountiful fresh produce Marlborough has available, while our beverage and wine lists are a selection of the finest the region has to offer.
