If you want a cheapish meal and can't be bothered to cook yourself then this is perfectly ok. But I would say it is one of the poorest harvesters around. Dirty throughout from the seats to the loos!

Great friendly service, and tasty uncomplicated food. The dining costs are not going to break the bank here, and there are good choices for everyone.

When we arrived at The Harvester, we were asked to wait for 15 minutes. I assumed this was a good sign - that they were clearly popular and of good quality; unfortunately, I was wrong. Firstly, the salad bar was almost empty. We pointed this out to the staff - and yet, by the time we left (at least an... More

Nice food, efficient service. Good value except for extras which are really expensive so stick to ordering as it is shown on the menu. I would certainly go again, the food is very good.

Having visited this venue a few times now, I can honestly say that it is one of the best Harvesters we have been to and although the meal selection is pretty much as expected, they always appear to have everything available, which is not always the case in some others. The service is always good and the staff always seem... More
