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.

    Nice ambience. Food was ok, my partner enjoyed his meal, however my steak was rather tough. Ridiculous to be charged extra for sauce on a £20 steak, too. We had to pour our own drinks. Also had to ask to espresso three times before we actually got it. Overall very disappointed, having paid £98 for a meal for two unfortunately the quality and service did not meet the level the price demanded. Won't be returning.

    Great food and excellent value.Enjoyed the friendly atmosphere.

  • ((((* 23 December 2016 by Hilda Hayes from Bournemouth

    Food was excellent and waiting staff attentive and pleasant. Portions were a little small and, except for a few dishes all sides and potatoes had to be paid for in addition to the cost of the dish. Service was very slow, they had a large works party in, but they were very apologetic and offered compensation. All dishes were delicious, even our vegan was happy.

    Starters were great, turkey was well cooked. Cheese board could have had a little more imagination.
