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

    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.

    Had afternoon tea here. Was expensive & not that much food for your money but was enough for myself & my mother. Loved that it was all home made & the cakes & scones were lovely as was the glass of champagne. Staff were lovely too

    Lovely atmosphere and helpful staff. The food was presented beautifully but wasn't quite to the standard we were expecting. The waiter dealt with it swiftly.

    I had the most beautiful meal yesterday (lamb and chocolate fudge cake!) I was really impressed with all the staff and how attentive they were. Even with the high standards of the meal I wasn't waiting long before i got to enjoy it! Really pleased and made my trip to Bournemouth worth while.

    This was the second time I had visited the Arbor restaurant in the Green House Hotel, Bournemouth, and I was not disappointed. Four of us went for Sunday lunch to celebrate my mother's birthday. We all started with crab risotto with an onion fritter which was delicious, followed by braised, roast lamb which was so tender it just fell apart. It came with ample vegetables and potatoes plus extra gravy. We all had different desserts all of which were lovely and quite different. For £20 a head I thought the portions were generous and extremely good value for money - I don't know why the restaurant wasn't full as it should have been! The waiters were very attentive and friendly. The only thing I found confusing was the menu - it wasn't quite clear what was included in the set lunch as some dishes had prices on them and others didn't. It seems that most things on the menu were included though. All in all a very enjoyable meal and we will be back.
