Although I arrived for an 8 PM sitting, on a Monday night, the restaurant was still very busy. The Harvester is a chain restaurant, with a standard menu. I opted for one of the dinner specials, because I think it offers good value for money. You get a choice of main course, plus unlimited salad bar, a drink, and dessert,... More

Waiter couldn't fine the chorizo burger on his handheld ordering device and went for help. After 10mins waiting around he came back and just wrote our order on a table napkin. My... More

Food was cold, due to waiting on side to be picked up. Fries under cooked. Did get free deserts because we complained. Went to another Harvester near Ponders End on Saturday, same complaints. Will never eat at a Harvesters again.

Took ages for someone to notice us waiting to be seated, then sat us at a table surrounded by rubbish on the floor and filthy cutlery, had to ask for clean sets, staff looked puzzled with request! Mega ribs were supposed to come with grilled pineapple - came with a spoonful of tinned pineapple bits! Ribs weren't mega just normal... More

Stood at the door for a while even though it was empty and several waiting staff saw us. once we were seated our orders were quickly taken. However the chicken 'wrap' that I got was mostly onions and was half wrapped and my... More

I don't know why they didn't just put all the food in a trough and let the customers help themselves. Not somewhere I would go back to

Visited on a Wednesday evening. We were seated by the entrance on the last available table at that time. Have eaten in this Harvester on more than one occasion but not recently. On this experience none of us would return, and as it was my friend's first visit to a Harvester I was embarrassed we had suggested it... We waited... More
