40th Anniversary

The Marlboro Restaurant was founded on the 4th of June 1974 by Ray and Clive Johnson and their friend Len Kirby. It is still run today by the second & third generation of the Johnson family.

To celebrate our 40th Anniversary we staged a Charity Golf Day & Dinner at Weymouth Golf Club on Monday 2nd June.

It has now been confirmed that Marlboro Restaurant Founders Ray & Len will be joining us for dinner & presenting the prizes!!!


There are some fantastic prizes including its rumoured the chance to win a round of golf around the coveted Remedy Oak Golf Club. Entry is now closed!
