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.

    Customer service and food were excellent. Staff very knowledgeable about the wine list which also helped.

  • ((((( 7 April 2019 by Anne from Esher

    I have been to the Arbor restaurant before. The food and service are always excellent. We shared a selection of “nibbles” to start - be warned the portions are very generous. You could almost make a meal of them alone. The choice is excellent at all courses. The wine list comprehensive. Only negative was a flashing light bulb. I had to ask to move. This should have been dealt with before service if possible - it was very distracting.

    All very good except both our main courses which were extremely salty

    Thoroughly enjoyable meal and a very professional and personal approach from the waiting staff.
    I had the tandoori trout, with a mussel sauce and basmati rice and it was cooked perfectly.
    Prices are not pub prices but they are not overly inflated either. I would say just right for the very good quality of the food. (About £20-£25 for one of the specials of the day).
    Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, whatsoever.
    If I had one criticism, the restaurant area is quite small and lacks a little atmosphere but this in no way spoiled the evening.

    Waiter was very attentive.
    Food was good and the menu was varied.
    Our side orders did not arrive with our mains, so we cancelled them.
    The decor was a bit dated.
    The disabled WC smelt of urine.

    Lovely food, top quality and beautifully presented. Food and wine good value. Service was good too. Dining room large and plenty of space between tables. The decor was okay but what’s with the big brown plastic tree in the middle of the room? Maybe it’s a talking point but the room lacked atmosphere which makes the whole experience more enjoyable.
