We had a really pleasant evening out & meal at the Arbor. The staff were all extremely courteous and keen to ensure that we were enjoying our visit. The food was of an excellent standard at a reasonable price - I had mackerel, seafood plate and a fantastic jam roly-poly, my wife had the soup of the day and steak,... More

Booked afternoon tea for a Wednesday afternoon for a friends birthday. Priced at £18.50 we received 4 finger sandwiches, 2 scones, 2 small cakes and a mini dessert each plus your choice of tea. There is a lot of food and we did leave feeling very full. Firstly, we were not offered what type of milk we'd like with our... More

Lovely seating area but food comes separately, would like sandwiches and cake together, and very limited choice of tea. Scones are not warmed as menu says they should be and the chocolate makes them very bitter. Cakes looks lovely but are ruined by adding flavours - such as the coconut creme brûlée which just tasted like a Malibu shot and... More

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!
