Arbor Desserts

Dorset Apple Cake and Vanilla Ice Cream
— 7.00 —
Humble and simple apple cake, and all the lovelier for it. A light sponge layered with sliced Dorset apples and brown sugar. Served warm with an honest scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream.

Sticky Ginger Cake, Clotted Cream Parfait, Candied Pecan Nuts
— 7.00 —
Spicy Fever Tree ginger beer cake, doused in a rich toffee sauce. Served with a cool Dorset clotted cream parfait for contrast, and candied nuts for crunch.

Double Chocolate Brownie and White Chocolate Ice Cream
— 7.00 —
Concentrated decadence. Our special brownie has a rich dark chocolate base loaded with white chocolate chunks. Served with velvety white chocolate ice cream.

Baked Banana Cheesecake with Butterscotch Ice Cream and Banana Fritter
— 7.00 —
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.

Vegan Chocolate & Olive Oil Cake, Almond Ice Cream & Almond Praline
— 7.00 —
A rich, sugary hit of a pud. It’s vegan and it’s gluten-free but you wouldn’t know it. Luxurious, moist fluffy cake is matched with almond milk ice cream and a sweet smack of crunchy praline. Gf, Ve

Selection of Dorset & Somerset Cheeses
— 9.50 —
Generous helpings and a wide range of award-winning local cheeses. All served up with homemade biscuits and a beautifully tangy chutney on Arbor’s famous cheese tree.


2011 Late Harvest Semillon, Valentin Bianchi, Mendoza, Argentina
– 37.5cl 23.00 / 75ml 6.50 –
A rich golden colour with honey perfumes, this gorgeous dessert wine combines the full-bodied flavour of juicy stone fruits with gentle vanilla complexity and a lively citrus acidity.

Grahams Late Bottled Vintage Port
– 75ml 5.50 –
Matured in seasoned oak and bottled at four to six years of age, this intense, dark port boasts rich red fruit balanced by taut, peppery tannins.

Muscat de Rivesaltes, Roussillon, France
– 37.5cl 31.50 / 75ml 8.50 –
From the largest organic and biodynamic estate in France comes this lovely pale-gold vintage: fresh, vibrant aromas of citrus and exotic tropical fruit, pure apricot flavours and notes of mint and spice.

Quinta do Infantado NV 10-Year-Old Tawny Port
– 75ml / 8.00 –
Light tawny in colour, with flavours of dried fruits and hints of citrus fruits, this port is medium weight in the mouth and elegant with a long finish.

Liqueur Coffees
– 6.50 –
Irish Coffee with Jameson, Italian Coffee with Amaretto, Baileys Coffee, French Coffee with Cognac.

Hot Beverages
Single Shot Espresso – 2.80
Flat White – 3.20
Cappuccino – 3.20

Mint & Chocolate Martini
– 9.00 –
A decadent liquid dessert – vodka and Crème de Menthe, shaken and poured over layers of Baileys Irish Cream and chocolate syrup. Topped with double cream sprinkled with chocolate and a fresh mint leaf.

Espresso Martini
– 8.50 –
Vodka, Kahlua, Espresso, Gomme Syrup. Adapted from the 1983 ‘Vodka Espresso’ invented at the Soho Brasserie, London. Forget the ‘Vodka Red Bull’, this is the connoisseur’s way of combining caffeine and vodka.

Artisan Bread. – 5.50


Venison Carpaccio, Beetroot Purée and Horseradish Cream
– 9.00 –
Lean, tender and super healthy loin of venison is seared and rolled in herbs and juniper, sliced thinly to melt in the mouth. Earthy beetroot contrasts with the meaty richness and a fiery hit of fresh horseradish rounds it all off.

Beetroot and Conker Gin-Cured Salmon, Herb Crème Fraîche and Buckwheat Pancake
– 8.00/12.00 –
Salmon steeped in locally produced (in Bournemouth!) Conker Gin with dill and lemon. Served with gluten-free buckwheat pancakes and a good dollop of cool crème fraîche

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.

Ham Hock & Mustard Terrine, Apple Chutney
– 7.50 –
Slow-cooked ham, prepared simply, because its flavour needs no help. Comes with home- made straight-from-the-oven bread. For that bit of zing: crunchy pickled carrots and a Granny Smith purée.
Df, Nf

Winter Warmer Soup of the Day
– 5.00 –
Some people never order soup, thinking it’s the obligatory afterthought of a reluctant chef. Not here. Only anti-grey-day winter vegetables make it into our steaming 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.


Beef Bourguignon with Tarragon Dumpling and Celeriac Mash
– 17.50 –
Locally sourced beef from butcher of the year Walter Rose is slowly, gently braised and stewed in Burgundy and mushrooms until it’s lusciously tender. Served with a tarragon dumpling to soak up the juices and creamy celeriac mash for an extra dollop of comfort.

Stokes Marsh Steak with Portobello Mushroom
– 8oz Rump 20.00/8oz Sirloin 22.50 –
Peppercorn sauce, add 1.00
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.

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 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.

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.
