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.

    As always the service was superb, taking into account the current regulations. Good was excellent, smaller menu than usual, but still good choice, and we enjoyed every mouthful.

    Booked a table for fine dining (ala carte) to celebrate my partner's 30th birthday The food, drinks and the service were fantastic -- everyone was extremely attentive and making sure we are having a good time. All dishes were full of flavour and prepared to perfection -- chicken & mushroom terrine, Mudeford plaice, celeriac soup, hake kiev. Lovely cocktails too. Definitely worth a visit!

    The food was out of this world. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The food came out in a very timely fashion. We had the 5 course taster menu, it was all amazing. I couldn't pick a favourite course. We also had the wine flight. I will definitely be back!
