Salad bar was well stocked and tidy, but the quality of my piece steak was not good for the cost - expected better for the price. Service not great as had to go to find someone to ask for things.

I ordered the 8oz steak with sweet potatoe fries. it was cooked to perfection, the sweet-potato fries were delicious. There was copious amounts of salad (as much as you can eat). Our waitress, Kati was very attentive. Good all round family experience.

Went here today for breakfast or should I say tried to, arrived at 10:20 to find an almost empty restaurant and waited for someone to come and take us to a table for about 5 minutes. On being taken to a table we were given some menus with not even a word from the waitress, we decided what we wanted... More

My wife and I went the harvester for a cheap meal. We arrived at 4:15 and stood in the entrance for a good 5 minutes the pub was pretty empty so thought this was poor. When we did eventually get shown to a seat we both commented on how rundown it was, the floor was filthy and there was holes... More

Very poor last experience. Many food items not available as 'run out'. Place is generally grubby, food on the floor, waited ages for some food. Got fed up and spoke to the manager and left. Needs serious refurbishment. Not intending to visit again TBH.

Stopped on way home given its location just off main road. A ten minute wait for someone to even acknowledge we were waiting for a table should have been warning as the service was very poor, and very slow. Menu was normal harvester so ok ish but we literally had a long wait for everything. Little or no engagement from... More

The worst breakfast I have ever had. I have never ever left a review on trip advisor before. Unfortunately due to our terrible experience this morning, I feel compelled to leave this report in the hope that the management will read it and not subject any more unsuspecting customers to the same. We arrived at 10.30 am, knowing that breakfast... More

Awful experience. The restaurant was dirty and overdue a renovation. The food was average during our experience. But we were later to find out we had been both been given food poisoning.

Worst meal I have ever had there ordered mixed grill not much of it only a small piece of chicken breast and then had to send the chips back as they were undercooked and cold, staff took my plate away and when it came back it looked like the meal had been thrown onto the plate. When mentioned to the... More
