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.

Unlimited (£4.99) is the key word! DO not go if you are not really that hungry, although there is a continental breakfast option (£2.99p) but if your like me and smell that bacon that's it diet gone out of the window! Unlimited drinks (£2.25p) is help yourself to Tea,coffee and juices form the table This reminds me of a holiday... More

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

After we couldn't decided on what we wanted for dinner, we decided to go to Harvester. Always plenty of salad at the salad bar, always nice warm rolls. We had the Sticky Tennessee Whiskey Combo can't beat the food or the price. The bottomless fizzy drinks is good value as well. You won't break the bank which is a good... More

Turned up and waited ten minutes before we were acknowledged by a waitress . Her English was poor and the menu was limited as the grill was broken. Really cheesed off and left

Three of us visited earlier this evening. Food, drink etc to the usual Harvester standards, but the waitress' demeanour began to annoy us. Checking up on us, making remarks about our son taking "so long" to eat his macaroni cheese (he's 3 years old), then still commenting as she walked away. She actually did similar to other diners, on looking... More
