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 had a great experience. Afternoon tea was delightful. All very fresh and beautifully made. I think we were the only people booked in that afternoon but we were in the lounge which was lovely and cosy and honestly didn't feel like nobody else was around. It's a very friendly and welcoming hotel.

    Three of us took lunch on Tuesday 15 November. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience - good selection of food, excellent service (professional, attentive) and a very pleasant dining room with plenty of space between tables (although it was a quiet day and we lunched late so we did not need to take other guests into account!). We would have liked lighter, fruit based desserts - an exotic fruit salad, a compote of fruits, a fine pastry fruit tart, fromage blanc with a coulis of fruits, for example. Good value for money, although glasses of (good) wine are - as usual in Britain - quite expensive.
