Famed for its unlimited salad bar and mouthwatering grill delicacies, Harvester Cooper Dean is a firm family favourite. Kids get their own activity packs, there is a cosy ambience all through the day, and adults can choose from a great selection of wines, beers and spirits.

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 Bournemouth. 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.

Blending traditional pub comfort with modern dining touches, Harvester Cooper Dean sits just 5 minutes' drive from Pokesdown Rail Station

    Family meal for 4 generations. Good range of food, enough choice for everyone. Good portion sizes and fresh veg on every plate. Delicious sundaes.

    Having been to the Cooper Dean Harvester dozens of times over the years, we are astonished at how poor it was. It appeared clear on our arrival that something was wrong - possibly staff not turning up - and we had to advise that we had already booked our choices, and that we were a Christmas booking. The food was poor (not the salad bar). The soup tasted - inappropriately = as if it had curry in it. The main turkey course which one of us had, the roast potatoes must have been reheated and all of us with our different choices said they were dreadful. No fork could be got into roast potato and frankly the entire course was spoilt for all of us generally. I never leave food but all of us left uneaten items. The most helpful waitress said we could change our original sweet courses, if we wished, and two diners changed to fresh salad. The fruit was lovely and freshly prepared but whoever prepared them was not experienced in food preparation because the pieces of fruit were far too large chunks to eat with a fruit spoon. Again, food left.

    We had tea and coffee and remain disappointed that you still do not offer Earl Grey tea. However, that is a very small item. The meal was very poor indeed and we have said that we will not go to a Harvester again. We realise something must have gone wrong, but our daughter and son in law had driven from Brighton to have a Christmas meal together and as they are vegetarian we thought the salad bar would be ideal in addition to Christmas meal.

    I was telephoned by staff to tell me that the restaurant had to be closed that because of a leaking drain. I was given telephone numbers of 3 other Harvesters within easy reach. I was able to secure a booking at The Riverside.
