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 smoked pork and cheddar and jalapeno sausage. 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, Oreo® biscuit crumb, raspberries and marshmallows, while classic options like Cherry Pie accompany fantastic vegan options like our tangy blackcurrant mousse on a light biscuit base. 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.

    Very busy restaurant, we were a party of 7. We found the staff all very polite and professional on arrival. Taken to our table, drinks orders explained.the table was quite close to the doors so everytime someone came in it was quite cold. We had to wait quite a while for our food but it was very busy. Once the food arrived it was very nice, however i think the plates could of been wamed up first. Half way through the meal the fire alarm went off and we had to evacuate to the carpark, although only a short time our food was cold on return. I also found they had to many menus with different deals which got confusing. I spent a lot of money on an evening spoilt by the cold draft, a fire alarm, and cold food due to thd above. No compensation for this, but I would still go back.

    Service was good, Knickbocker Glory was great. We got £3.95 off the bottle of sparkling Zindenfal but weren't told it was on special offer so was a nice surprise

    Poor - service was slow. Waitress was rude and spoke with an aggressive tone. Food was its upside, as was for the most part enjoyable. Though not worth the wait.

    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.
