Book your stay for Hogmanay at Bournemouth’s luxury boutique hotel, The Green House, and see in 2016 with a sumptuous New Year’s Eve “supermenu” at Arbor, voted the top restaurant in Dorset for two years running.
After the weeks of frantic shopping, wrapping, and cooking, why not reward yourself for just getting through the Christmas break… with a real break? It’s the ideal chance to enjoy some much needed down time with friends, family or partner in our beautiful 32-room Victorian villa by the sea.
Bournemouth’s Green House Hotel has it all – chic interiors, a hidden-away location just a stone’s throw from the beach, and to top it all, Arbor, the best restaurant in Dorset, as voted in the Dorset Tourism Awards in both 2014 and 2015. Not only that, but you will also be doing the planet a huge favour by staying in the Greenest Hotel in Britain.
We happen to think the main ingredients for a classic New Year’s Eve are fantastic food, something a little special to drink, and the company of dear ones. Plus, of course, somewhere sumptuous to lay your head and summon in the New Year – there’s nothing like a perfect night’s sleep to make you feel ready for a fresh start. Of which more later.
To make the occasion extra special for our guests, the team at Arbor, Bournemouth’s 2-AA rosette restaurant, have put together the most amazing New Year’s Eve “supermenu”. You’ll find dishes cooked the usual Arbor way with seasonal, organic ingredients – ethically sourced and lovingly prepared. Head chef Andy has chosen his favourite dishes from our seasonal menus throughout the year and, for this one night only, is reprising them for our special guests.
The full menu will be available on the Arbor website when announced, but just to whet your appetite, New Year’s Eve starters include our incredible Hand Dived Lyme Bay Scallops, Stornoway Black Pudding & Roast Cauliflower from the summer menu (we do try to source locally in general but believe us, some things are worth going to the Outer Hebrides for); light as a feather Gnocchi with Peas, Old Winchester Cheese (an English alternative to Parmesan) and a heady splash of Truffle Oil; and Confit Chicken Terrine, made from flavoursome free-range Cotswold White Chicken, with Leek Puree and Grilled Asparagus.
For your New Year’s Eve main meal, choose from Barn, Bay or Butcher: there’s succulent Glazed Pork Cheek with Wholegrain Mustard Potato Cake & Winter Vegetables; a hearty Pan Fried Sea Bream, Saffron, Chorizo and White Bean Cassoulet with New Potatoes; or for a veggie option, a simply stunning Roast Butternut Squash & Rosary Goat’s Cheese Suet Pudding with Buttered Swede Mash.
And then there’s dessert. Regulars at Arbor will know that the puddings alone are worth coming out for – perfectly formed creations, all made from scratch, straight from the wondrous, Wonka-esque imagination of our pastry chef, Beth. For New Year’s Eve there’s a wicked Mocha Fondant served with homemade Baileys Ice Cream; a pretty pink-and-ivory Rhubarb & Custard Mille-Feuille with tart pink Rhubarb Sorbet; or an amazing Baked Vanilla Yoghurt with comforting, warm homemade Waffles and Maple Syrup Ice Cream.
We advise you to book early – remember, this could be your last chance to sample these extra-special dishes from Arbor’s back catalogue. Choose a starter, main course and dessert from our incredible New Year’s Eve “Best of Arbor” menu for the inclusive price of just £50 per person. (Please note, though, that if you would like to add some nibbles or a favourite side dish, then these are in addition to the main menu and are priced individually.)
After dinner, you can kick back into the early hours over truffles and espresso, a liqueur coffee or perhaps a glass of our very special Fonseca late bottled vintage port in the bar. Just make sure you make it down in time for our New Year, New Forest breakfast, followed, perhaps, by a bracing walk on the beautiful beach – it’s five minutes from our front door.
The Green House Hotel New Year’s Eve Packages are incredible value – one night’s dinner bed and breakfast from £249 for two in a Small Double room or a two night package from £214 per night. Or why not splash out and upgrade to our luxury double rooms from an additional £40 – your room will feature an original Victorian roll top bath, super king bed (6ft), 32” LED flat screen TV and Bose sound dock.
All our beds are topped with luxurious goosedown duvets and crisp white organic bed linen – the perfect way to wake up refreshed and raring to go for 2016!
