I pulled in here for lunch when leaving Brighton after a meeting. I've always known Harvesters can be dodgy - sometimes you might be lucky and get a good one but most of the time they're a bit like an up market Weatherspoons! The waitress offered my the Special Lunch menu - drink, meal and dessert for £9.99. I ordered a drink (a pint - just the one!) and then ordered a main meal - chicken burger and fries. The bread roll for the burger was a soft roll, the fries were verging on the 'cool' rather than hot. The burger was simply a piece of burger and a piece of lettuce!! No garnish. The 'eat as much as you like' salad from the salad bar - I know salad should be cold but it was freezing, and bland. I was handed the bill £11.48. What about the £9.99 I asked? "Well that includes a dessert and you didn't have a dessert" was her immediate response. "OK" I said, "I'll have a dessert". Then she pointed out that the drink I'd had wasn't included in the deal - always convenient! I suggested that after handing me the "special" menu when i arrived she might have wanted to let me know that the drink I then ordered wasn't included in that particular deal/offer. I could only smile at her response "Mmm, is that alright?" It's not even a couple of quid I know but the service was poor and the quality of food was poor. I will not visit again.
