Firstly greeted by the dirtiest carpets ever, do they ever get cleaned? Which then leaves to question the cleanliness of the kitchen and rest of the restaurant. Absolutely appauling! Food has gone downhill, had rump steak cooked medium rare - very tough could tell it was a cheap bit of meat. Side of chips although cooked were definitely not cooked... More

It was strange to see the car park half empty on a Friday night as whenever I've driven by before, it has always looked packed. Word must have got round that this Harvester has problems in the kitchen. I chose to take my daughter there as it is close to where we live and she wanted a steak. Our greeting... More

All you can eat breakfast is a definite winner. Not greasy and with ample choice for everyone, great value for money. Ours was table of 3 and bill was just £21.00 including unlimited drinks too.

our first visit to this Harvester was as expected, good value and the usual quality food and service however our visit was slightly spoilt by the cleanliness of the carpets around us which were to say the least grubby and had what looked like a days-worth of food remnants on them from previous customers. In addition whilst we were still... More

Had a meal the other day, brilliant service, but it was understaffed and the manager was putting the least effort in. Food is pretty good, especially for the price, the car park is a bit of a nightmare and the pub looks like a dump from the outside, inside is mismatching in places and the carpet is disgusting, but there...
