This was a spur of the moment decision to visit this local harvester, as we hadn't been here for a very long time. Although the staff were very friendly and the main courses were well presented and cooked to our liking, we were let down by the poor offering on the salad bar and what seemed to be a restaurant...

Visited harvester Sheldon for a family meal whilst our usual harvester monks path is under refurbishment. We was taken to our table after a 30 minute wait in the bar for a vacant by table witch is normal with the havester reastraunts . We was given menus and was left waiting to order food for 30 minutes.

Visited late Saturday afternoon .staff very good and friendly, tables not wiped properly food on floor, salad cart filthy and everywhere else thick of dust lampshades blinds etc. Felt like no care went into anything Inc food presentation and cleanliness. Really disappointed will not be going back here in a rush, will go to their other restaurant next time

Had a ten minute wait for a table, server was friendly and the food you get what you pay for. Done the set £9.99 main meal with sundae ice cream desert and unlimited salad. Found nothing wrong with the salad bar and the main was hot and quite tasty (Cauliflower cheese tart and Gammon). Yes it could have been cleaner... More

I've eaten here quite often with the family over the years. However, I'd say over the last six months the food has become average to bland and the cleanliness is non existent. Often I find that the tables appear to be 'sticky' and the toilets are horrid. Not bad in terms of price as you get a free salad cart... More

We tried the breakfast for the first time at the weekend and was very disappointed. Firstly the coffee is absolutely disgusting! There were no mushrooms available. A couple came in after us, and the young girl obviously worked there and was in on her day off. They received their food before us, this really annoys me. We were waiting for... More
