SquareMeal Review of Arbor Bournemouth

This restaurant – part of a boutique hotel – takes an everyman approach to fine dining: within its serene walls, dishes of tip-top quality that champion local produce are served by staff who share the evident passion of the kitchen. Every kind of diner is catered for: office workers can speed through a 40-minute express weekday lunch; pre-theatre menus are a similarly brisk bargain; while tasting menus and afternoon teas cater to more leisurely pleasures. The seasonal menus source as much as possible from Dorset and its neighbouring counties, for use in dishes such as blinis topped with salmon cured with local Black Cow vodka, 28 day-aged Stokes Marsh steak with twice-cooked chips and peppercorn sauce, and Somerset cheeses ahead of dessert. Arbor’s resolutely unfussy atmosphere (and relatively restrained pricing for this level of cooking) have made it a firm favourite with locals as well as visitors.
