Bit disapointing

Visited with my family including two children for an early dinner. Waited ages for our order to be taken and when it did arrive it wasn't very hot. Not the most expensive meal admittedly but not sure I would wish to return. The restaurant was busy and understaffed and had a general feel of... read more

We hesitated when told on arrival that there was a 40 minute wait for a table but thought that, if it was that full, it must be good. In fact the wait was much less than 40 minutes and would have been even less but great care was taken to position us as closely as possible to the salad bar... More

Not the most expensive meal admittedly but not sure I would wish to return. The restaurant was busy and understaffed and had a general feel of shabbiness especially in the ladies toilets.

As a vegan I am often let down by chains but this place takes the crown for lack of imagination. I asked about the vegan options and was told that I could 'have the pasta with no cheese and have a portion of chicken on top'. Clearly staff have no idea. Was told that the fries and other potato based... More

Such a shame as when Harvester's get it right they are fab, but I am yet to have that 'fab' experience in this one... I still keep trying them out in here now and again, but it seems that everytime I do there is something that lets the visit down. The service was slow but the waitress was pleasant. The... More

Went late Friday afternoon, staff seemed interested in customer service, starter was good main course was poor fries tasted like they had been cooked hours ago and kept warm, staff not interested in checking food is ok. Good for a salad cart but hot food at 15:00 hrs on a Friday was very poor

We went to this place on a whim one day as the american diner was out destination opposite but they sometimes take their time with the food. We found the place to be quaint. The food was decent also. You also have the option of going for a salad which is very nice. I think we liked the free salad... More

I have been to the Harvester alot of times. I started going again in the past two years and it's gotten worse. Service is slow, we got seated and it took the server 20 minutes to come over and offer us drinks. Had the drinks and a further 15 minutes to order food. The food came and I asked for... More
