Fine dining Beautiful presentation at Restaurant Roots

Restaurant Roots

At Restaurant Roots its set menus only: choose from either 5 or 7 courses (there are also vegetarian menus on offer) and enjoy a truly amazing meal in a stunning contemporary setting. The menus change with the seasons, and we love the presentation of the food. We’ve always been impressed with the service too: attentive, but not too much.

Ventana Grand Cafe

We love the truly luxurious surroundings of the Ventana Grand Cafe at The Cumberland Hotel: it’s dark, opulent and comfortable, and it’s here that you’ll find some fantastic 2 AA Rosette standard food. The menu’s packed full of local fare with a modern European twist: we’re partial to their seafood dishes, and we always save space for their Dorset cheese trolley, laden with local favourites and served with a generous selection of biscuits, chutneys, pickles and more.

Fine dining dessert The food at Arbor: almost too pretty to eat...

Arbor Restaurant

Arbor at The Green House Hotel also boasts 2 AA Rosettes, but is very different in style to the Ventana Grand: for a start, there’s a tree right in the centre of the dining room! It’s certainly a talking point - and the food is too. Expect seasonally changing menus created by chefs whose imaginations clearly know no bounds: we love the fact that they’re globally influenced, with everything from spiced sweet potato samosas to pork loin with black pudding and ham hock. Delicious.

Neo Restaurant

Michelin-listed Neo not only offers great food, but great views too: its huge floor to ceiling windows look out over the seafront and gardens for a great atmosphere. It’s a seriously stylish place with a menu to match: from the fresh, warm bread at the start of your meal to the fantastic local oysters, from the juicy, perfectly cooked steaks to the range of sides (try the triple cooked chips - they’re amazing!), Neo delivers on every single front.

Isabel’s Restaurant

Whether you’re after an intimate meal for two in booth-style seating or are celebrating a special occasion with a larger group, Isabel’s Restaurant will be a great choice for both. It’s a Michelin-recommended French restaurant with an extensive a la carte menu where you’ll find everything from salads to steaks to sorbets...and while we’re on the letter S, be sure to try their decadent cheese soufflé with a blue cheese sauce - it’s out of this world...
