We called in on the spur of the moment and were pleasantly surprised. The 1130-1700 menu was great value and we had a starter and main course. Additionally we had a free salad from the counter. The food was lovely and the service from the waiting staff was superb.

(which made much of a difference, she ordered from the adult menu, but initially wanted the children's menu. Choice is key at their age and I appreciated the waiter giving us/her... More

Using a Groupon ticket we booked table at The Harvester, St Oswalds Gloucester. Staff were very friendly and attentive even though they were busy. The meal was gorgeous so we will definitely be going there again and recommending to our family & friends.

There were not a lot of people dining but sufficient to keep the staff on their toes. The menu was varied enough to offer everyone what they liked. The service was quick,... More
