First table and chairs were dirty, second table had crumbs and dirty tissues on the floor and crumbs all over the chairs. The floor was swept after we mentioned it but they failed to notice the crumbs over the chairs. Not wishing to sit among the previous visitors' mess we promptly left!

I've eaten in some bad places over the years but this gets close to being up there! The only good bit was the food came quite quickly and the two girls serving were trying to sort things. The manager was rude, arrogant and looked totally out of control. We tried to complain but he'd disappeared when we ask for the... More

After a couple of bad experiences at The Priory, we avoided the placec for a very long time. As we wanted a quick (and local) lunch last week, we decided to try this place again in the hope that it had drastically improved - that was our first mistake! When we were shown to a table at the back I... More

Took my partner, son and his girlfriend there on a Saturday Night. My partner warned that we could expect a long wait-She was wrong. We walked in and was given a table straight away. The food was served quickly and was fantastic. The thing that impressed us from the beginning was how welcoming and friendly the staff were. They visited... More

Used this Harvester many times but on this occasion it couldn't be further away from our previous experiences!! We had a wait of 30 minutes which was not an issue for us but we observed many empty tables with dirty dishes on. The matrade explained that he could not let his waitresses to have more than six tables to serve... More

Decided on a spontaneous visit to this branch with my own family and my parents. I wish we hadn't. Upon arrival at the table, my father had to ask for a replacement fork as the one provided was filthy. Our drinks order was taken - my father's drink wasn't available so he had to select something else. When the drinks... More

Lack of staff, the 2 they had were a waste of oxygen. Whole Floor area filthy and covered in food. None of the drinks we wanted were available from the menu after several attempts. When the food was brought out it was incorrect and cold and excuses for not having enough of the ingredients. Watched as two other couples complained... More
