Blending traditional home-style dining with fun contemporary touches like the unlimited salad bar and activity packs for children, Harvester Talmead offers up a wonderfully inviting dining setting for the whole family.

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 Herne Bay. 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 firm favourite with local families, and a short drive to the seafront, Harvester Talmead is 6 minutes' drive from Herne Bay Rail Station.

    Friendly but frequently missing staff, so attracting attention for additional drinks or food items was difficult, Food was average at best. And the view from the window was a line of about a dozen blue wheelie bins!

    Your kidding right. Having booked a table for 11 to celebrate mums 67th birthday we arrived just as the place was evacuated for a kitchen fire.. we were informed that the fire brigade were on route and to leave for own safety. Ignoring the fact we had already placed the cake behind the bar and bought a round of drinks.. we understand these things happen, and found a lovely place to dine. But come on checking a survey of dining after a fire forces closure.. funny.

    WW'e have eaten at talmead Harvester before and have found it pleasant but something has gotten better since our last visit. The menu has been revamped and is in, my opinion, very nice. The food was cooked to perfection and although the restaurant wqas busy it didn't feel cramped or feel like the staff couldn't cope with the busy schedule. All in all a lovely evening out.

    Lovely salad bar. Appalling service. Booked for 5pm. Starter came out at 6.20pm. Medium steak was black. Fish was raw. Wrong drinks brought out. Ran out if time for dads birthday desserts, coffees etc as had children with us. Asked for their meals early but still nearly 1.5hrs after booking time.
