My family and i visited this restaurant over the weekend for both tea and breakfast. We found that both times the staff were lovely and we were seated very quickly, to say it was mothers day and we hadnt booked! We loved the fact the salad bar was free and our tea arrived promptly and tasted lovely! Again at breakfast... More

Visited last minute for Mother's Day the food was much as expected, while well cooked and tasty not well presented it always looks like the have simply 'dumped' it on the plate. The salad was a little on the poor side full of cheap stuff (pasta, carrot, onion etc) and the chips were cardboardy. Service was good and our server... More

Popping out for the day to celebrate Mother's Day so booked a table for breakfast before we left. Firstly we waited almost 10mins before anyone acknowledged we were waiting. We were then seated and waited a further 20mins for our hot breakfast order to be taken. Went up for the continental breakfast and: •Toaster only toasting one side and burning... More

The food was pleasant but the surroundings were not. It was messy. Every chair on our table had food crumbs at... More

Very very slow service tonight! And it's a Monday night and the place is not packed. Their drinks machine broken and all the tables around us also waiting for service. It's unusual but still frustrating. The main meal took almost 35 minutes to arrive.

We booked a table on line for 3.30 and was seated at that time. However we were informed that most of the desserts had ingredients missing from them and was told 'it was just one of those things'. We then ordered drinks and my sons was the incorrect drink when it turned up. We were seated in an area near... More

The food has massively improved at this Harvester. There is a good selection of good when meeting up with friends. The salad cart was well stocked and there were fresh rolls available. The unlimited drinks has improved as there are drinks with a dash of flavour such as strawberry, vanilla, lemon and cherry. Makes Pepsi more interesting!! I did have... More

We arrived and waited sometime to be acknowledged and seated. Once seated the waitress was quite friendly and attentive. My husband ordered the Cornish-kiln-smoked St. Louis ribs but was very disappointed as the ribs were mostly fat and gristle which turned his stomach preventing him from eating his meal. I ordered sirloin steak med/well but was more med/rare and also... More

Very good meal with tasty food. Service was good and attentive but not over the top. Use of the tastecard made it more affordable. The surroundings were comfortable and we would be happy to return for a midweek meal.
