“Great value and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Situated right opposite the Old Sarum site, the Old Castle looks pleasant from the outside and is deceptively spacious within. I was impressed both with the friendliness of the staff and the quality and value of the food. I had as well cooked and presented a mixed grill as I have had in ages. The remarkably reasonable price (£12.79) included the Harvester's excellent unlimited salad bar, a choice of potatoes and sauces.
Well done all round. A chain that puts high emphasis on high standards of service, quality food and value for money.

“Always Fab!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Have visited The Harvester many times and there has been consistently great service, the staff are always friendly and welcoming. I work in hospitality also and it is so hard when out, not to notice what people are doing well and not so well, but I have no criticisms. The salad is freshly prepared and the whole of the restaurant is clean and tidy. We have tried many items on the menu and have thoroughly enjoyed the meals and will definitely visit again! Keep working well!

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Went with friends one evening and had a nice meal with good service. The only drawback is you can't book a table.

“Good service, nice food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Great service as always from this Harvester, staff all friendly and appear interested in you.
The menu choice is more varied than previously and the salad bar area was kept clean and well stocked throughout our visit.Can't think of anywhere better to take the kids for a family meal without the stress.
