A lovely night out.

My husband and I were given a voucher for Harvest from his family, and used this as our first date night since the arrival of our second child. We had booked, and arrived on time to be seated straight away. The food was gorgeous, although quite pricy (we couldn't afford it without the voicher). As... read more

Been twice, concept and environment great, food was good, but the service is average...not a good look when the staff think they're more special than the guests, all extremely busy doing what?? Not serving customers. Harvest Deli next door, lovely and great service.

We have eaten here many times over the past few years and the restaurant has enjoyed some well deserved acclaim. However, the last couple of times we have been a little disappointed with the menu choices and horrified by the prices, particularly the drinks. The ambience is great, the food is delicious, the service a bit ordinary. Would still eat... More

I went here with a bunch of my nearest and dearest as part of my hens celebrations. What an experience! We found Harvest to be such a wonderful setting for a leisurely girls lunch. The service was fantastic, the wine list was pleasing and the food was exceptional! I can't wait to go back!

From arrival we felt welcomed and relaxed, we were invited to have a drink by the fire, had a beautiful cocktail and the bartender was able to magic up my partners favourite beer even though it wasn't on the menu. The food was amazing and the service impeccable ( Thankyou Sean) Yes it's pricey but we had a perfect evening... More

Based on friends and colleagues recommendations and also reviews that we had read, we travelled 3 hours to dine at Harvest last Saturday evening and what a disappointment! Upon our arrival (exactly 5 minutes before our booking), we were left hanging at the counter for app. 10 minutes, after being told that "Claire" would soon be with us. With nothing... More

We have visited this Harvest bakery on a number of occaions but the last couple of times have found the pastries not as fresh as they used to be and the coffee slightly bitter. It is pretty pricey to visit so quality needs to be of the highest standard.

What a wonderful find. On high recommendation we made our way here and we weren't disappointed. Local produce shines, portions are generous and service friendly. Well worth the drive.

Everyone has different tastes, but Harvest seemed to appeal to ours.Hidden on the old road but only 30 metres off the current one, in the 'forgotten' village of Newrybar. Old verandahed cottage, with clever décor, old world/new world seamlessly and smartly presented. Only had coffee and cake, both very nice. Had read some reviews mentioning arrogance and attitude, and no... More
