We thought we would have breakfast at the Harvester in Meadowhall as we had a lovely meal at the Harvester at Valley Centretainment the night before. Big mistake! The service was slow even though it wasn't busy, we waited 10 minutes for our drinks to arrive and another 20 minutes for the breakfast to arrive and when it did it was lukewarm. We didn't bother sending it back as we had waited to long for it to arrive in the first place so we ate it anyway. The food was tasty but as it was only lukewarm it spoiled it really. I did complain a few times during the meal but the staff weren't too interested. I wouldn't go back to this particular Harvester, although if I hadn't had such good service and food in the previous Harvester this experience may have lost them custom for ever.

Was taken here tonight by my parents whilst visiting in Sheffield and I was VERY disappointed! Firstly, the menu outside said the garlic mushrooms and chicken stack was veggie friendly. This made me quite excited as it sounded like a good veggie meal, nopes.....when I went in and asked the waiter he told me there was a miss print on the menu and it wasn't veggie chicken! He did however recommend the butter nut squash! I thought all was going to be fine and went to order this, only to be told they had actually ran out of it (this was about 6pm on a Friday night?). Failing the first 2 options I went for the veggie burger, asking for it without tomato salsa.....I waited.....Hurray! That was available..... With excitement on it arriving at the table the horror hit, it had came with tomato salsa on.....even though the waiter had wrote down on my order it was to be served without it! So....another 4 minutes later my 3rd choice twice cooked meal arrived :(

I wouldn't have minded so much if it had of being worth the wait but really it was nothing more than less than average. My jacket potato was hard and just not nice at all, my burger was just the average burger I could have got cheaper in Spoons! Thinking back, I should have complained about the meal, but I was fed up and pretty much past caring!

All in all the only good thing about my trip there was the free salad! It's pretty safe to say I most definitely won't be eating there again! :(

I wanted a simple and uncomplicated meal with plenty of salad.
After looking at all the very unhealthy options available in Meadowhall and the ridiculous prices being charged, I stumbled upon the Harvester.
We were seated quickly and looked after by our waitress called Beth. The service was attentive because it was a quieter time (4pm) and the food arrived quickly too. The Halloumi and tomato dish was superb especially with the unlimited salad bar.

Other public areas were nice and clean too which is one of the best ways to tell how much care they put into cleanliness.
