Harvester Restaurant - Review

Over the festive season Evan and I were treated to a meal at our local Harvester in Bournemouth.

I have to admit I didn't even know we had a local branch so it was a pleasant revelation! You can find your local Harvester here.

We were warmly welcomed at reception and shown to our table, then promptly our server; Connah arrived and introduced herself.
We were offered drinks whilst we perused the MENU and we set about ordering.

There is an enormous range to choose from for every course, so for starters I had the Ultimate Nachos for One which were delicious! Evan went for the Cheesy Garlic Ciabatta which lasted him around 30 seconds!

For mains, Evan decided on the Fish and Chips and I chose the  BBQ Chicken Stack. I utilised the help yourself salad bar and unlimited coffee whilst Evan had bread rolls and butter and unlimited soft drinks.

The Salad Bar and bread selection is extensive and you really have such a choice, it is incredibly hard not to over do it!

Initial reaction to the restaurant itself is very good, exceptionally clean and tidy and the lighting is an ambient relaxing hue which is just right - not too bright so you feel like you are in a waiting room and not too dull so you have to squint at each other!
The staff are very friendly and constantly working - I witnessed no party having to wait for anything.

Our mains arrived promptly and the portion sizes are enormous - so go easy on the salad if you do intend to eat anything!
There was a slight issue with Evan's main; but this was preempted by Connah our server and dealt with/ rectified immediately!
Nothing quite shows how well a business is run like how a problem is dealt with.

We were completely full but STILL decided on hot chocolate fudge cake for pudding and I felt like the boy out of Matilda; the portions were yet again enormous.

If I could find any problem at all - it would be signage to the premises. We did have problems finding it but other than that 10/10 for the evening.

We left full, happy and going to return!

You don't need an excuse to go to your local Harvester - ANY reason is good enough! With a menu so vast and to suit all palates and pockets nothing could be better (except the food!)

Early set Menu from £7.99
Evening set Menu from £10.99
