Service from the staff was not an issue but fries were undercooked. Meal was advertised as having mushrooms but we're missing from the meal. Surroundings looking rather tired. Walls splattered with food marks. Salad bar requires a good clean. Light shades need a good clean and bulbs replacing..

We visited this pub for the first time for an evening meal. After ordering our food it took some 30 mins to be delivered. Whilst we were waiting the waitress gave us a bowl in order to help ourselves to the salad bar. This was the only good part of the meal. The salad bar had a wide selection of... More

Took ages for anyone to acknowledge us. Table was sticky to the touch. Service quite slow and had to remind them about one drink. Having said that the food was pretty good and well presented. My husband said his boneless beef brisket was tender and tasty, but not hot enough. My gammon steak and pineapple was nice and hot enough.... More

We enjoyed our meals & puddings here. Staff are very friendly & pleasant,cheerfully making sure we were happy & our food was good. A nice venue with all the usual extras associated with a Harvester pub:unlimited salad,refillable soft drinks & a varied menu. It has a prominent corner position with a large attached car park.

Sat near the kitchen, an extractor fan was very loud! The salad bar was 'old' and not very fresh (bread rolls were rock hard too). We felt like a bit of an inconvenience to some of the staff! This was my first visit to a harvester and I'm not sure I want to visit one again! For the price, I... More

I have visited Harvester in Castleford a number of times and each time it has been 'okay'. The service is always very slow, from being seated to ordering and receiving the food, so best not to go here if you're in a rush! Although slow, the staff are always lovely which is a plus. I have also been a few... More

The two course lunch menu is great value at 7.99. Plus free salad bar. Top this with unlimited soft drinks with a huge choice of flavours at a great price and you can't go wrong. Worth a visit.
