Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Food was lovely, the wait time for food was good. But the thing that made our visit worthwhile was our waitress zoe, she was so friendly and nothing was too much hard work she went above and beyond for us and all surrounding tables even...at a busy time. She’s a great assets to your team.More

We have visited this restaurant many times over the years and have always found the food lovely and good service. A big bonus with Harvester in general is that they give you a bowl for the all-you-can-eat salad bar while waiting for food. With 3...impatient children, telling them they can have all the salad they like to keep them occupied is great!More

Visited harvester tonight with family, so disappointed, my partner had the gammon and chips. The gammon was so small you had to move the fried egg on top to find it! Mine and my daughters 8oz rump steaks where so dry and over done, could...taste nothing but a strong charcoal taste, accompanied by a handful of Shrivelled up peas and the smallest onion rings, tomato and a single mushroom I’ve ever seen. The only thing really edible was the chips. It all just tasted really odd. We had a 9 year old with us who ordered the pizza and chips and it was so hard we couldn’t even slice it for him. A £63 bill and All we got offered was a refund on the kids meal. Actually disgusting, won’t be returning.More

We have in the past visited the Harvester on the Eastern Road, but after a bad experience last time, I looked at reviews for The Mermaid. They were really good so decided to give it a go! It was very busy. 4pm on a Sunday....However, although the service was a little slow at first, this dramatically improved. The food was lovely, with the exception of the rump steak which should have been ‘medium’ but was very well done. This made it very dry. The food was piping hot which is very important to me. 2 desserts were ordered, 1 adult and 1 child. The child dessert was served in a white ceramic bowl whilst the adult dessert was served in a lovely glass dish. The child was upset so a glass dish was requested, which was very quickly provided. Thanks for our server. Only issue was that the table was in the beautiful sunshine for the entire visit, which made it very warm. It would have been nice if there were blinds. We will definitely return. With the 25% discount off the food bill, it was very reasonable.More

Let’s be honest, fabulous food and super staff? Now that’s a recipe for success as Port Solent Harvester has it all. The salad bar is always stocked, the food is always on time and the staff are always available to lend a friendly hand. We’ve...been visiting for years now and NEVER ran into an issue. Whether you have dietary requirements or accessibility difficulties, there is no job too difficult. Despite all members being on perfect form, some honourable mentions go to Kay and Niamh which always manage to excel beyond helpful and welcoming.More
