Visited here whilst staying at the local hotel, the food was ok but chicken a little dry,
however an original combo meal with a large glass of wine for £16 was good value.
the service was good and nice atmosphere

Hello,
Thank you for the feedback on your visit with us. we are sad that the food was only ok for you in this instance and that our chicken was a little dry. We show all comments with all the team and the kitchen guys apologise that they have let you down a little bit. The front of house guys are pleased that you said that their service was good. We now have an incentive in place for comments, (positive & negative) kitchen Vs Front of house.
Thank you again

I found the Harvester to be very clean with friendly staff, the only issue I had was I ordered the Cheese and Bacon potato skins and found they had been microwaved to the point the cheese was like rubber, apart from that everything else was more than adequate.

Hi,
Thank you for the review and rating and am pleased you found us friendly. I was disappointed that the food quality on the potato skins didn't meet your expectations. Normally we would grill the cheese in the skins under our grill and a microwave is not used, we are checking to see who is the culprit in using the microwave and they will be advised of the correct way to melt the cheese.
Thank you again for bringing this to our attention.
Cheers

Peter

I will start off by saying I have been here many times. The kids like it.
However since we last went it looks like harvester have changed the menu. There was nothing that resembled chicken nuggets on the kids menu.
The adult menu whilst okay did not seem to have anything quite as appealing as the last few times.
However food was still cooked to a good standard and service was as always in this branch spot on.
Tables are cleared quickly and it is clean looking.
I will be going again but hope they change the menu back to more like it used to be.

Hi James,
Thank you for your feedback following your visit to us.
We change our menus twice a year and, generally, until we do the training we do not know what the changes are, we are in the hands of the food development team although we have had a say for the next change on some 'lighter' dishes we would like to see on the menu and the trials of these are having positive feedback.
As for the Children's menu we haven't had a Chicken Nugget type meal for quite some time. We use our grilled Chicken Breast on the smaller bites and there is a Buttermilk Fried Chicken on the bigger appetite section of the Children's menu, this is a piece of Chicken Breast in a buttermilk batter.
I will pass all comments on and share them with the team here at Grange Park.

Thank you again for your comments.
Peter

What a shame, many Harvesters that I've visited lately seem to be taking a nose dive! Seems they're buying in the cheapest ingredients and charging as much as possible for them. We order the slow cooked rib which was full of gristle, sent that back and it was replaced with sirloin steak that wasn't really a lot better! My partner ordered sirloin to be cooked medium, this arrived well done or more! The table next to us didn't get on much better as one of their meals was raw and others were inedible too! The waitress handled the situations very well and tried her best to resolve things but the quality of the ingredients and cooking of them was out of her hands!

Visited today with the family for the first time in a while. I must admit we only chose to go here as it has 'air conditioning' (which wasn't working very well). Staff were pleasant food was fairly quick and ok. Salad bar was a bit warm and limp. Overall, not great, but not bad.
