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.

    Excellent quality food and drink. Fast service. One of the best places to eat in bournemouth though it is tucked away in a nice location but without sea views. Quiet and intimate with a great range of food. Desserts are incredible.

    Wanted somewhere special to dine as a treat for the boyfriends birthday, after extensive searching stumbled upon this restaurant by accident and had to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The food was amazing, the staff friendly and attentive, the atmosphere was relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. They even managed to play a song of ours which was a complete fluke -although I think I may of gained some extra points because the timing couldn't of been better even if I had pre arranged it, which I hadn't. I would thoroughly recommend this place for the special occasions or the times in life when you just want to share a memory, as a thank you for being there or a warm hug to cheer someone up. We will definitely return. Thank you to all the staff who made our night perfect.

    It's a great experience, wonderful environment and food is good!

    I had afternoon tea. Surroundings were lovely but I was not impressed with the sandwich selection & cake selection. The coffee was nice but I had a lot of bits at the end of the cup, 4 coffees in, I had a lot of bits in my drink which wasn't pleasant. No one came to ask if everything was ok. It was a hot day & we were not offered outside seating & the room was stuffy as it had no air con or fans.

    Went for Sunday lunch but once seated was informed they only had one Sunday lunch left. Their website says beef, chicken and lamb but apparently these are sample lunches but I did not notice this so think it should be made clearer. Having said that the meal we had was fabulous, great presentation and very good value 3 courses for £20.

    The food was stunning - as always. Excellent value for money, the quality is exceptional.

    The experience didn't happen wasn't allowed to go as we have a young son so I will rate the experience as underwhelming
