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.

    Amazing. Everything!

    Food was delicious. They catered for all tastes and there were good options for everyone even the vegan in our party.

    Arbor is a lovely restaurant with a restrained decor. Although we had the fixed price Christmas menu, which was excellent value, it still included elements of fine dining. The cauliflower soup was superb.
    Thr only downside was the service which was a bit more leisurely than we would have liked.
    None the less we would definitely like to make a return visit and try the a la carte menu.

    Lovely vegetarian dishes. Efficient and courteous staff.

    Lovely ambience, Food was excellent, service very good. Only thing that was a bit misleading and very dated was the service charge, gratuity charge and VAT not impressed to find the hidden charges. However would try again

    The Christmas themed afternoon tea was delicious. Beautiful, tasty sandwiches (without crusts). Two varieties of light and fluffy scones with clotted cream, strawberry preserve and lemon curd. Followed by ginger and spice battenburg (divine), meringue tart (sweet,crispy and creamy) and custard doughnut. The whole experience was delightful. Our waitress was helpful, efficient and friendly. All together a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

  • ((((( 14 November 2018 by Esther from Belfast

    Three of us came for afternoon tea and it was truly exceptional. The food was so tasty and all the items were baked perfectly. The service was really good and very generous servings. As a personal preference it would have been nice to have had some more savory items but that's more down to personal taste!

    Service was quick and very friendly. Food was delicious, particularly the garlic mash!! Really nice graduation touches of glass of bubbles and graduation balloon which was very appreciated. However, we had to ask for the graduation set menu as was only given the standard menu to start with. Overall, a fabulous time, would 100% return and recommend. Plenty of parking spaces as well which is helpful. Thank you :)

    Really lovely evening at Arbor. Cauliflower Katsu curry starter was for me the stand out dish of the evening although the salted caramel roulade came a close second! Staff lovely.
