Lunch at The Havester

We visited The Harvester yesterday (A Monday) at around 1PM for a quick lunch time snack. We was shown to our table promptly, but this to be expected as the Resturant wasn't busy. Our waitress was very nice and took our drinks orders straight away and was very quick to bring us our drinks and to... read more

The best thing they can do is close it down. Staff awful and look shabby, tables filthy, had to get drinks from bar ourselves after ordering and waiting over 15 minutes, salad bar got the one star. Bread rolls rock hard. Floor filthy, the best thing for us was walking out the door never to return. Avoid avoid !

So.....alarm bells were ringing when we were initially seated at the table..... We were by passing clean and tidy tables, and were shown to a table that had a smattering of coleslaw on the floor under the chair. Straight away i refused to sit there. We were moved, but we still has to kick stray chips away from our seating... More

After writing a review that gave 1 star and quite frankly "slated" the restaurant I thought it only fair to write an up to date one some 6/7 weeks later. After making contact with their CEO I was forwarded a gift card to use some 6-8 weeks later as they were going to put a new chef in there to... More

We dropped in here for a late lunch, on arrival there was nobody to seat us. We then had an awkward encounter with our waitress who had no customer service at all. She didnt mention the salad bar. We noticed food on the floor and the table next to us had at least 7 ants crawling around! After eating we... More

Went for a late lunch on Wednesday at about 2pm. There was only one waitress, but there was only a few occupied tables so she wasn't overworked. Seated promptly and drinks came quickly. Starting with the salad bar, this was well stocked and clean, but I would expect that given the few customers. I had the 16 oz Rump steak,... More

It's a harvester, so you cannot expect the Ritz, but the food was tasty, quick and the service was friendly.
