About Charlottes Kitchen

Charlottes’ Kitchen was established in late 2015, and is bought to you by the rascals and reprobates from the Duke of Marlborough Hotel. A totally different experience from the Duke - which is steeped in history and tradition, Charlotte’s Kitchen brings a social contemporary dining experience to the Bay of Islands – a funky fun atmosphere for casual dining and drinking.

And if you’re wondering – as many do – Charlotte’s Kitchen was inspired by Charlotte Badger and some amazing artwork by Lester Hall. And who is Charlotte Badger? Learn more about this tale here.
