In a charming thatched building that is listed in the Domesday book, Harvester Cat & Fiddle is the perfect example of a rustic rural British pub with rich history. Inside there are exposed wooden beams and inviting brick fireplaces, while outside there is al fresco seating to enjoy lazy afternoon drinks or casual family meals.

From its succulent grill selection to the celebrated unlimited salad bar, the Harvester menu is packed full of wholesome flavours for the whole family. Rotisserie chicken cooked in a secret blend of spices is available alongside tender smoked ribs marinated in signature BBQ sauce, while smaller tapas-style dishes are perfect for sharing, with options like spicy crackerjack prawns, and grilled chorizo with padron peppers. There are generous combo platters, juicy steaks, well-stacked burgers, and a great salad selection with premium additions.

All kinds of sweet treats are served on the dessert menu at this Harvester in the Christchurch. The sundae selection loads real dairy ice cream with toppings like warm chocolate fudge brownie, raspberries and honeycomb pieces, while classic British options like Bramley apple pie sit alongside international twists like key lime pie. From the bar, there are world beers, spirits, and speciality soft drinks for the kids.

A stunning pub full of history and charm, Harvester Cat & Fiddle is only a 7-minute walk from Hinton Admiral Rail Station.

    We received a warm welcome when we arrived and were served with drinks quite quickly. We had a slight problem when ordering a Combo meal. My son wanted to swap the sweet corn for onion rings but was told this was not possible. The menu seemed to indicate that a swap was possible so we were rather surprised to be told this. The waitress came back to our table shortly afterwards to say that they would provide complimentary onion rings for him! The meals generally were very good, although the gammon was rather tough. The salad table was very good with plenty of choice. Our twin grandsons enjoyed the children's activity packs which were ready for them when we arrived.

    Ordered steak medium well done. The result had the look and texture of a rather hard slab of shoe leather. The lady managing our table was very polite and instantly deducted it from my bill.
    I have been coming to the Cat and Fiddle since 1975. It has expanded from a beautiful old pub that was full of customers to a modern food outlet. I have great doubts that the current commercial arrangement produces anything like the ROI of the original business unit.
    However as a place catering to the masses it is doing a good job.

    Good selection at reasonable prices. Like the gammon with egg and pineapple
