You normally know what to expect when you go to a chain, such as a Harvester, Beefeater etc. but i am afraid to say we did not get that here. It was a Sunday evening and I was told that they were busier than usual and that we would need to wait about half an hour, which was just as... More

The meal order was taken and the wait acceptable. The food today was quite bland, a shame because normally it's quite good. The bill came to... More

Have visited this harvester many times and each time it gets slowly worse.Evening meals are not to bad but the breakfast is a let down,you either wait to long for your breakfast to arrive and when it gets there it's cold,or it arrives in a reasonable time and it's still cold.This has happened too often won't have a breakfast again.

We came here for breakfast as we had visited a Harvester for breakfast before. What I like about a Harvester breakfast is that the hot food is cooked fresh and to your liking. There was lots of choice on the continental section, the fruit was very fresh and tasty, the juice was cold and plenty of choice for toasting. (A... More

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 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
