Set your sights on the coast for a Champagne afternoon tea in Bournemouth that’s grand in scale and relaxed in atmosphere. Your destination is the 2 AA Rosette Arbor restaurant. The 4* Green House hotel’s flagship restaurant, the Arbor, reflects the values at the centre of the globally recognised eco-chic hotel, with local and sustainable produce at the very heart of chef Andy Hilton’s excellent offerings. You and your guest will be able to enjoy this quintessential indulgence with all the trimmings. Tuck into an array of traditional finger sandwiches alongside delicious chef’s fancies, straight from the oven. Afternoon tea is nothing without a good dosing of scones, and you’ll have your fill of both chocolate chip and traditional, served, naturally, with Dorset clotted cream and locally sourced preserve. You can choose from the restaurant’s range of teas ranging from green and herbal offerings to timeless classics like Earl Grey or English Breakfast. As this is a sparkling affair, you’ll be able to wash it down accordingly, with your choice of Champagne, cocktail or a Champagne cocktail. Nestled between Dorset’s finest blue-flag breaches and the wonders of the New Forest, there’s plenty to discover if you choose to make a day of it and head out to explore nearby.
