Visited 13th May for Birthday meal as 3 couples. Amazing food, all of us had 3 courses and everyone was really impressed with the quality of the food and very reasonable prices. Service was great, really attentive waiters who had great knowledge of the food and wine. We will definitely be back.

Absolutely awful experience, had booked a table for their pre-theatre menu for 6.30pm. Unfortunately arrived 7 minutes late and was told the deal was no longer available despite a largely empty dining area. How ridiculous, if you don't want to offer this deal don't go to the trouble of advertising it. I would strongly recommend that people don't dine here,... More

As a special treat our daughters gave us a voucher for £100 for Arbor last November and we had been looking forward to it enormously. We booked and visited on the 29th of April. When we arrived we were greeted by a charming Romanian waiter who was most attentive and led us to our table at 7pm as booked. It... More

Visited as a treat my wife had planned for me. The restaurant is lovely and the staff very friendly. The menu is reasonably small and pitches itself as a fine dining experience. The menu options were interesting. The starters and mains that we had were excellent, the lamb particularly was very flavourful and had some nice textures to it. The... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening at The Arbor Restaurant which I would recommend you book for in advance. The decor is elegant and subtle. Despite initially wondering if we would be satisfied enough on seeing our starter portions, I quickly realised that this was all about flavours and presentation. My son was in raptures about the Duck and my... More

Over the Easter weekend we (family) went for a short break to Bournemouth. Using Trip Advisor we found the Arbor restaurant which was a short walk away from our hotel. Good job we made a reservation, on arrival the restaurant was fully occupied. Everyone went for different options from their menu of the day and a la carte menu; including... More

Visited here with my partner and another couple for Easter Sunday lunch to try somewhere we hadn't been. Food was superb and served in a timely manor. Staff were friendly and efficient and the place provided a relaxing and enjoyable ambiance. Will definitely re visit in the future.

This was our second visit to the Arbor and it didn't disappoint. This place is brilliant if you love very tasty and well thought out menus. We had a lamb roast dinner and finished off with a chocolate fudge cake, which were both amazing. The martini espresso was fab too 😀will definitely return.
