The Arbor restaurant is the dining room of the Green House Hotel in Bournemouth. Our party of two were staying in the hotel for a few nights on a half-board basis and so had dinner in the restaurant on each successive night. The pre-printed a la carte menu is the same each night but there is a wide variety of... More

Warm greeting at the front desk. Good handover to restaurant staff. Airy, light restaurant with well spaced tables. Outstanding cooking and value from the £20 3-course lunch menu. We tried crab risotto (intense crab flavour and mackerel (beautifully presented followed by fish of the day with crushed potatoes and broccoli. For desert I have the millionaire cheesecake and my better... More

Food and service just perfect. Wine pretty good too. Compliments to the Chef and Maitre D'. London restaurants could learn a lot from this little place.

Have a drink in the lounge before going through to the restaurant which has a relaxed style, plenty of room, great service and the food really was top quality. A well thought through menu and staff seemed genuinely keen to serve you.

Afternoon tea - the best scones I've ever tasted, served with lemon curd, as well as jam and cream. Breakfast - great selection and cooked to perfection, with the best black pudding ever. Dinner - high end, delicious, every course a winner. All underlined by principles of sustainability and, where possible, local and/or organic. Impressive!

Went here with my best friend to celebrate our birthdays. This was our first visit to this restaurant and we certainly weren't disappointed. Excellent food and wine, great service and a lively atmosphere made for a very enjoyable dining experience.

Sooo pleased to have tried here. . nothing to fault for me. Service from start to finish was attentive without being intrusive and evenly spread out so nothing was rushed and nothing was upsold either. Food was just perfect. . portion sizing, presentation, and flavour packed quality ingredients. Beautiful Primitivo wine, rich and unctuous, sufficient to take us through the... More

My wife and I experienced the "Farm to frying pan" meal on 15th Feb and found it to be a great experience, both in terms of the food and the dining arrangement. By seating couples on a communal table with a common interest in the provenance of the meal (sourced from a local farm) it resulted in an evening of... More

Had booked for Valentines lunch but ended up with our seven year old for the day. It wasn't a problem. We enjoyed the set lunch, he enjoyed the children's menu but could have easily managed just two courses. Food was very good. The mackerel could have been better, the cheese biscuits didn't quite work with the cheese but overall a... More
