Events at Arbor Restaurant

As well as lunch and dinner restaurant service, Arbor hosts a wide variety of events. We’re famous for weddings at The Green House – with ceremonies and wedding breakfasts held in the restaurant – but we also host fashion shows, charity lunches, private parties, new menu previews, product launches and theme nights. Whatever you’re after, we’ll work closely with you to make your event at Arbor stylish, personal and memorable.



Good Mood Food – Five Course Tasting Menu
Friday 17th January, £35pp

Buy a gift to look forward to in 2020…After the (lovely) excesses of the festive season January hits some of us with a bit of a mental thump. So our first tasting menu of the new year will be something of a departure for us. With nutritionist Barbara Cox, head chef Andy Hilton has created a super tasty, brain-bolstering menu, designed to dust off the cobwebs and get you back in gear. Good food boosts your mood.

5 courses, £35pp. Wine flight available, but if you’re doing dry January, you can go for our mocktails and healthy drinks options instead.
