We booked a table to visit as a family to celebrate my daughter's 3rd birthday. We were seated and waited ages to order drinks and food. We finally did when my sister in law went and found a staff member. We had each collected some salad and were eating when we were informed they were not serving food. At this... More

Went tonight, the place was a real mess, food all over the tables and the floor. No staff to be seen when we eventually found someone we were told that it would be approx one hour before we could have some food! As you can imagine we walked out, we will never go there again.

We've been here before. It used to be a pretty good place to go. So we decided to take the family for my brothers birthday. They've had a refit changed all the lovely wooden tables to tacky marble effect ones. For some reason the refit also brings a very poor service. The chap serving us was doing half a job.... More

We visited here for the second time in a few months and the place had changed considerably. The staff actually cared this time. We were seated quickly and ordered within a reasonable time. The food came quickly and was all very tasty. Sam, our waitress, came over and checked everything was ok and was genuinely interested to hear our comments... More

The restaurant was not busy. Very slow service, food took ages to arrive. Ordered Apple and cherry crumble. It was not a crumble. Jam, custard and a sprinkle of crumble topping. It was cold. I have been To lots of other Harvesters and have enjoyed the experience. Will not go back to this one.

Sorry but not my bag. My fears were confirmed by the disappointing portion with very little taste of an expensive main course which to be honest did not touch the sides. Very disappointing

Visited here at lunch time today and waited for about ten minutes to be acknowledged and seated. There were two busy waitresses who obviously couldn't stop what they were doing to seat us but there was a woman (Steph?) behind the counter by the till who just completely ignored us and two other sets of diners behind us. Several times... More

The restaurant appeared to be very busy when we arrived but we didn't have to wait long to be seated which was good. The staff were polite but seemed to be overstretched with the volume of diners. We were handed menus but like most large chain eateries locally were sticky and greasy. Why they can't be wiped down quickly never... More
