O dear poor old HARVESTER , it used to be good, the main menu has gone down, with the prices going up, and the selection on the menu is restricted. But the salary bar is good, not the selection there use to be.

Went here with my boyfriend and once arrived we waited for about 20mins to be seated, food was over cooked, chicken was really dry and hard, no knives on tables and took ages for someone to bring us some. I could understand if it was busy but there were 2 other tables thats it. My first time at a harvester... More

Without the service received from the amazing waitress MARINA this resturants wouldn't even get a rating from me! Shoddy reception from one member of staff whose meant to great and seat people couldn't take a second to explain that pretty much 3 quarters of the menu wasn't available! Barely a selection in the salad bar and overall under average food!... More

I had a lovely breakfast today. This was my first visit to a Harvester breakfast and chose the ''all in''. I had pretty much everything on the menu, little realising that portions came in two's - tomatoes, hash browns, mushrooms (large)....... and not wanting to waste anything I was full to bursting. Really well cooked food, very pleasant server and... More

Nice big platefuls of food, tasty but in my opinion the menu needs to be bigger, more choice required. My main problem is that they had run out of a few things, also had the same problem with another harvester before, it's really bad. And the salad bar isn't all that, not very fresh.
