Very slow getting served

Called 3pm on a Thursday and was seated very quickly however had to wait a good 15 mins before being attended to. Had much better service at other Harvester Restaurants. Food good and arrived as salad finished. Always enjoy a Harvester salad! Good value 2 courses.

We arrived at 1020 an were own to a table immediately. The menu and protocol were explained by friendly staff. As a couple with a 5yr old grandson, we were delighted with choice, value and quality. Yes, they gave me mushrooms when I had asked for none. But do you know what? I forgive them. The sausage, bacon, beans, toast,... More

We stopped here for a meal and had to wait 25 minutes for a table, which is fine, we waited in the bar. It was busy and i did feel sorry for the staff, they didnt stop running from table to table. With that in mind we were served within a reasonable time. The salmon was a little dry and... More

Although the food side of the place is pretty standard for a harvester and (fine) ...the bar side is tatty and uninviting. I like food but I also like to enjoy a drink in the (crap) bar after. The garden is crap with no ashtrays. These places must make a lot of money on the food yet invest no money... More

Called in here at lunchtime today. Salad bar looked really old, browning lettuce and most sections nearly empty. Looked around and all around the salad bar where staff store cutlery etc, was really messy and dirty. Didn't give a very good impression. Service wasn't great. Waitress delivered main courses before collecting starter plates and then only partially cleared them, as... More

Visited The Arden Oak for breakfast whilst travelling back from a family holiday, we often visit harvesters in our local areas and the breakfasts are amazing and great value for money..however this one was not. The pub seemed relatively busy and there was only one member of staff to be seen. She seemed very busy and took a while to... More
