Afternoon tea was delicious. The scones were warm with lashings of cream and jam. Lemon curd was a thoughtful extra and the cakes were melt in the mouth .

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.

    The menu was imaginative and the food of a standard I associate with michelin rated restaurants, in particular the main course, ‘chicken 3 ways.’
    Professional and friendly service enhanced the experience. A well sourced wine list completed a truly special dining experience.

    Great service, delicious food and superb value for money.

    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

  • ((((* 20 March 2019 by Graham from Birmingham

    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.
