With its crowd-pleasing menu and homely British feel of comfy furnishings and exposed wooden beams, Harvester Sea Horse is an inviting pub and restaurant that draws a loyal following all through the week.

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 Poole. 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.

Also offering children's menus and real value for money, Harvester Sea Horse sits 11 minutes' drive from Bournemouth Rail Station.

    We have visited the Sea Horse Harvester at Alder Hills Poole about 6 times during the last couple of months and have always found the food and of course the staff excellent and have of course reccomended our friends to visit you themselves.

    Food was fresh and hot. Husband asked for a steak cooked medium but he felt it was more rare than medium. Told the waitress Julie who was brilliant. She apologized profusely and took the steak back to the kitchen. She returned with a completely new plate and the steak was cooked just the way he liked it.

    seem to sit us on a small table...when we asked why we were told by the manager they only have two two person tables...that was ok until I saw three four person tables with only two people eating at...when I asked the manager I was told that was because they did not what is the point in booking in advance?

    Cleaner than other harvesters, service excellent, selection very good. My wifes steak was rather tough & stringy though, but we were compensated for this with a free sweet. Overall experience very good as always.

    The manager was most disagreeable. We had booked and he said we had not. There were 7 of us. 3 adults and 4 children. When entering the restaurant all we could see was empty tables. He did not put himself out at all, we only wanted a meal and were not going to stay all evening. This was at 5.00 p.m. We were most disappointed, and know not to try a harvester again. We went to Ben and Jerrys and had an excellent meal!
