I’ll start with a positive, our waitress was very helpful and attentive, the two beers that we had were also equally nice. The salad bar, don’t see the point of the waitress carrying my bowl back to our table rather than us carrying our own,...however, I totally understand the difficult times that we live in so no downgrading of our review for this. The food, wow, what can I say, I had chicken with buttered sweet corn and the ‘famous’ chicken gravy, I can only say that it was vile, it was out within ten minutes of ordering so obviously not cooked fresh, my wife had the pork belly, no better I’m afraid, we ate about ten percent of it, rearrange these words, wave, micro! To end on a positive, they reduced our bill accordingly however we were left feeling very let down after a rare afternoon of eating out. We won’t be returning.More

The staff did not seem to care. Had to ask for everything many times, including cutlery and drinks. Very disorganised and badly run. It was our first time out in 15 months very disappointed.

Haven’t been back to the harvester since lockdown and really pleased with what we got. Our waiter luke was really really helpful and friendly. Always there offering help and ensuring that we all was happy with our food. Food itself was lovely and definitely worth...the price we paid. Recommend highly.More

Arrived for breakfast with my pal & the server came to take our order, my pal asked for Eggs benedict & was told ‘sorry no hollandiase sauce’ so she said it’s fine she’d have it without, then to be told ‘sorry no muffins’ , whilst...she was trying to decide what to have I asked for the breakfast buffet, the server said ‘yes that’s fine, but there’s no toast as we have no bread & no fruit, I asked what they did have he said ‘ yogurt & cereal’!!!! Absolutely terrible, why are they open if can’t provide what you want, there’s a Tesco’s up the road selling muffins, bread, fruit & Hallandale sauce!!! we left went to Wetherspoons across the way where we had what we’d wanted at the Harvester for half the costMore
