“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Visited here for lunch after looking for somewhere to stop whilst passing through. The restaurant is a purpose built building on a retail park. It's modern and spotless with a nice decor and the staff were welcoming and friendly throughout. The place was nicely full but not overcrowded.
The menu is obviously the usual Harvester fare, but there is a good choice and its fresh and reliable. The salad bar was well stocked and had plenty of variation.
You would be pretty hard pressed to get the same quality and quantity for this sort of price anywhere.
Highly recommended all round.

“Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

I rang to inquire about advance booking and the manager answered the phone, he was very helpful and informative. The service when we arrived was fast and friendly, our server, Perry seemed to really enjoy his job and made sure our drinks were topped up and we had everything we needed.
Good choice of food and value for money.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Good food, but the restaurant reminds me of an american diner, and appears cold and lacks character. Not your normal Harvester interior.

The food is good, and reasonanly priced. The service was v.good and the restaurant was clean.

The toilets here however on all 3 occasions that I've been here have not been to the highest standard, and in fact on one occasion were quite dirty.

“Like a canteen”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We had to wait 20 minutes in the bar which is ok if it´s nice food and service but it was not what we expected.
The waiters were very stressed and when we complained about the lambburger the waitress said "that´s how they are done. You can have another one but it will look the same."
Burnt in other Words!
The dining hall wasn´t very nice either, so altogether not such a nice experience if you wanted a nice night out.
