Set in an exclusive 4-star retreat, Arbor Restaurant serves refined British delicacies while staying true to eco principles and sustainable roots. Boasting 2 AA Rosettes and 2 Gold Awards from Dorset Tourism for Eating Out and Sustainability, the expansive gardens offer an ideal spot for al fresco dining.

Blending classic and contemporary cooking techniques, the Arbor menu makes use of daily deliveries of organic farm-assured produce and artisan specialities, as well as some of the UK’s finest fish and shellfish, fresh from trawlers. Serving uncomplicated, imaginative and honest food, the Arbor chefs mix the classic with the contemporary, with dishes like Lyme Bay scallops with creamed peas and bacon, or chorizo-stuffed chicken with red onion tart tatin.

Nestled in picturesque the Dorset countryside, Arbor is passionate about offering truly local flavours. The organic and biodynamic wine list restaurant has been extensively researched, with bottles painstakingly matched to the menu dishes.

Offering a chic setting that champions environmental responsibility, The Green House Hotel restaurant in Bournemouth offers a lush, natural hideaway. The Pavillion Theatre is 9 minutes’ walk away.

    We came at lunch time today for my dad's birthday and we couldn't have had a better all round experience. The customer service we received was excellent, and the fact my dads birthday was acknowledged straight away, and with a glass of prosecco, made it very special. The food was amazing and the attention my young daughter received was really appreciated. Thank you!

    Amazing food, well presented restaurant, accommodating and pleasant staff; quick service, lovely atmosphere, expensive menu but very good value for money.

  • ((((( 26 April 2017 by Kristian Wilson from Bournemouth

    Excellent food with wonderfully attentive service. The restaurant was quiet which was perfect for the occasion. The pre-theatre menu represents incredible value for what is probably the best restaurant in Bournemouth.

    Nice ambience, very attentive waiters, food tasty, though could have been a bit hotter. Roast potatoes a tad over cooked.

  • ((((* 23 April 2017 by Stephen Hill from Pulborough

    Set within a hotel the atmosphere is very pleasant and welcoming. The dining room is not what I would call anything special but still nice. However the food is amaazing. Attention to detail, presentation and flavours are really very very good. Some very creative twists on classic dishes without spoiling the original. Can't say enough about the food. Well worth the visit.
