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.

    We loved the room, very comfortable and atmospheric. We had one main course each and both were absolutely delicious - although we did feel the side of greens could have been a little bigger. Wines by the glass were very good. Overall, we felt this was an excellent restaurant but felt there could have been more staff on as we were there on a Friday night and it was quite hard to catch the waiter's eye as they were so busy., But would highly recommend for a dining experience in Bournemouth.

    The food is amazing here, all home cooked and lovely flavours. The staff were very helpful and pleasant, giving us advice about the tea.

    Very good food -and some imaginative dishes like the Duck Wellington. Good attentive service and a pleasant ambiance.

    A nice environment. Food good. Strange to have 2 sweets for a 5-course taster menu, rather than a sweet and cheese option. Website never did show what the menu was going to be even though it said it was 'coming soon'. Some staff seemed a little inexperienced. The 5-course taster was £36 which was a good deal and the flight of 5 drinks at £20 was also a good deal. Spot on size portions. I didn't feel the gin and tonic went with the sweet personally, but happy for a new tasting experience.

    The food was of excellent quality, the service was friendly, helpful and not intrusive. It was a pity on the day we visited there was a rather noisy table near us but it was nice that the staff apologised for this. This does help. :-). Overall, highly recommended and we will visit again.

    Our visit from start to finish was excellent. The food is always out of this world, the staff are friendly and the service exceptional. We had the 5 course taster menu, each course was delicious and beautifully presented. It is so cheap for the amazing food - £32 per head for 5 exquisite courses. We will definitely be back!
