£29 per head

A 4-course set meal Inspired by produce grown by one of our favourite local Dorset smallholders. Ingredients are hand delivered to Head Chef Andy Hilton to turn into a supper fit for a king. Guests are seated at long tables of 12 so the atmosphere’s relaxed, cheerful and stimulating. Eat incredible food, support local.

This month’s producer: Fluffets Farm, New Forest

Avocado forms the perfect secret base for this creamy, sinfully healthy mousse, bound with smooth peanut butter and bitter cocoa. The nutty praline brings the perfect note of brittle sweetness. GF, Ve
Baked Banana Cheesecake with Butterscotch Ice Cream and Banana Fritter

Fresh bananas folded into a sweetened cream-cheese topping and layered over a homemade oaty biscuit base are a deliciously subtle foil for decadent toffee-flavoured ice cream and a hot freshly made banana fritter.

TO START…

Dorset Crab Mayonnaise, Apple & Avocado Salad, Brown Crab Fritter
– 9.00 –
Luxurious local crab is the main event on the plate here so let the quality sing! Hand-picked white crab meat in a fresh chive mayonnaise with simple salad of apple, soft avocado and cucumber. The brown crab meat fritter packs a punch.  Gf

Black Cow Vodka and Dill Cured Salmon, Watercress and Pickles
– 7.00/11.00 –
The salmon is steeped in smooth Dorset-distilled vodka (made from milk!) with dill and lemon. Served with peppery Dorset watercress, pickled shallots, gluten-free buckwheat pancakes and a dollop of cool crème fraîche. Gf

Rosary Goat’s Cheese Cake, Textures of Beetroot
– 7.50 –
Soft and light, almost dessert-like, until you get the savoury sharp hit of Salisbury Rosary goat’s cheese and a crunch of homemade onion digestive base. Earthy, beetroot sorbet adds sweetness, pickled beetroot adds texture. V

Crooked Solely Ham Hock Terrine, Brioche & Yeast Extract Butter
– 7.50/10.50 –
Slow-cooked ham, prepared simply, because its flavour needs no help. Comes with a homemade straight-from-the-oven brioche, spread with super savoury butter. For that bit of zing: crunchy pickled carrots and a Granny Smith purée.

Summer Soup of the Day 
– 5.00 –
Some people never order soup, thinking it’s the obligatory afterthought of a reluctant chef. Not here. Only the summeriest vegetables make it into our pot. So if you’re normally a non-souper, it’s safe to ask about today’s liquid creation.

Isle Of Wight Tomato Tartar, Tomato Water, Basil Oil
– 6.50 –
A stunningly beautiful tartar of vibrant Isle of Wight tomato varieties, complemented by a crystal clear tomato essence. The sweet familiarity of basil oil cuts through the intense umami. A big hit of flavour with a refreshing finish. Ve

TO FOLLOW, FROM BAY, BARN AND BUTCHER…

Slow-Cooked Lamb Shoulder, Tabbouleh, Butterbean & Olive Casserole
– 17.50 –
Flavoursome lamb shoulder, slow cooked for hours in a casserole of butter beans, tomatoes and olives until meltingly soft. Served with a zesty, herby quinoa tabbouleh, powerful olive tapenade & minty yoghurt dressing. Gf

Stokes Marsh Steak with Portobello Mushroom
– 8oz Rump 20.00/8oz Sirloin 22.50 (Peppercorn Sauce + £1) –
Steak as it should be. Succulent sirloin and rump from Tim Johnson’s roaming Hereford-Angus crossbred herd are dry hung for 28 days to maximise flavour and tenderness. Served with addictive twice-cooked chips and a big, meaty Portobello mushroom. Gf

Courgette & Kidney Bean Chilli, Roast Almond Purée, Crispy Potato Skin
– 13.50 –
Spicy, fragrant chilli served in a potato skin for crunch. The smooth almond purée balances the heat hit, while grilled lettuce lifts with freshness. There’s zingy red onion salsa on the side, because a chilli without salsa isn’t really a chilli. Ve, Gf

Slow Roast BBQ Pork Ribeye, Cajun-Coated Prawn, Warm Potato Salad, Fennel Slaw
– 18.50 –
Arbor’s own surf and turf: spiced honeyed pork, reared outdoors at Bishops Cannings (Pig Producer of the Year 2015) pairs with tender, crispy prawn. Served with dill-infused early potatoes and an anise-tinged slaw for summer crunch. Gf, Df

Chef’s Seafood Plate
– 18.00 –
We don’t want to overwork our seas. Instead, Andy selects the finest seasonal and sustainable catches, using his knowledge and passion to create a perfectly balanced dish of the most delicious fish and shellfish, straight from port to plate.

Market Whole Fish
– Market Price –
The best, freshest fish from local quays, perfectly grilled. It may be world-class Bass from Poole or Lemon Sole from Lyme Bay – just ask. Served with new potatoes and a sauce to bring out the fish’s unique flavours. Seafood for the soul.

Roast Squash, Spinach and Cheese Pie, Crunchy Seeds and Wholegrain Mustard Cream Sauce
– 14.50 –
Mix the best local produce with two of our favourite cheeses – creamy Rosary goat’s cheese and rugged Dorset Cheddar – then encase in homemade pastry topped with toasted seeds for a superb veggie pie. Mustard adds a welcome lick of heat. V

Roast Chicken Breast, Chicken & Tarragon Raviolo, Mushroom Purée
– 17.00 –
Walter Rose’s superb chickens deserve respect: the breast is pan roasted to crisp the skin and develop rich flavour; the thighs are slow-cooked and combined with tarragon for raviolo. Served with rich mushroom purée and a side of smoky bacony mushroomy sauce.
