Restaurant description

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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    The restaurant was lovely situated within a luxury boutique hotel and intimate. I had the shoulder of pork and my husband had the steak and both were delicious and presented well. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. On arrival we had a drink in the bar and the barman was very polite and aiming to please us which was tremendous. The only thing I would encourage is a dress code as there were couples in trainers, jumpers and caps. For this type of restaurant you need to make an effort ??

    Booked after reading an article from Independent stating that this was one of the best restaurants in Bournemouth. Underwhelming experience. Tiny portions and food not amazing enough to justify prices. Left hungry and disappointed. The only good thing was service.

    Very good service, my wife had the ribeye steak which was cooked to perfection, I had the venison, again cooked perfectly (if a little small) and the side trimmings in the casserole made it! Would recommend for both the food and great service

    Brilliant restaurant with amazing food we went for our anniversary, the restaurant is very romantic. Cocktails at the bar are tasty but the main attraction is the highest quality of food. The beef scrumpet was the best starter I’ve ever had, I had a venison loin and the sticky toffee gingerbread. All three courses were amazing never disappoints.
