We went to this harvester today as we regularly go to harvesters where we live. On our way home from a day out we stopped. Lovely inside as all others are. Food..... My sons kids meal fish goujons were rock hard. Chips were pre cooked, cold and hard. My husband got southern fried chicken it was ok. Nothing special. Best... More

I visited with my partner not so long ago and all in all the food and the service was lovely, couldn't fault the food and our waiter Matt was great without being too intrusive. One thing I did notice was one of the managers who seated us was a little rude, I noticed on more than one occasion that he... More

Had a lovely meal sat out side right next to the canal. Staff were friendly and chatty and the food was good. There was a part of the restaurant that we sat in that we were then informed that area was closed, although there was nothing to indicate this. Otherwise all good.

We used to regularly visit the Old Trooper and always thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service. We visited mid week, early evening the place itself was fairly quiet but we still had to wait for an hour for a table which in itself was frustrating but we hadn't booked so we had to wait patiently. The salad bar was... More

We visited The Old Trooper Harvester for breakfast. We've never been for breakfast and was very impressed generally with it all. There was so much choice and astounded by how much you had for value for money. The service was faultless! A highly recommended place!

This restaurant used to be one of our favourites when it was a Beefeater.... well it certainly isn't anymore. The young lad who was our waiter was very polite and took our order and told us to help ourselves to the salad bar which was okay, but we waited and waited... and waited and waited... for the meal to be...

I do apologise for the poor food quality, we were a chef down that evening which threw the entire restaurant out; meaning that unfortunately some of our guests were waiting too long for their meals. I was in the kitchen myself that evening; myself and the other chef were doing our best to keep up but we fell behind. Usually... More

The food was really good, really tasty and plenty of it. The service was a little slow but it was a friday evening and the starters are a little small but the mains more than made up for it. As much as you want salad bar is good, but with the size of the main meals you don't really need... More

As we hadn't booked a table, my son and I were advised we would have to wait about 40 minutes for one, but in the end we only waited about ten minutes before being shown to a table. Our drink order was taken quickly, and we ordered food at the same time. There was a good range of attractively presented... More
