We arrived in Chichester late in the afternoon and as we were staying at the Park Hotel thought we grab the pile 'em high salads at the Harvester next door. They had obviously been busy all day as the floor was covered in food. No one had bothered to clean up the mess. It was disgusting. The food served was OK though and the service pleasant enough. Seems like a bad manager can't get their staff to realise that cleaning up the mess customers make is EVERYBODY's job!

Once again the food was terrific. We went with my daughter and her husband and her mother in law. The waiting system is better - they give you a bleeper!. The food is great and plentiful and we all had a good time. It is always busy so that says something. The staff have always been friendly too.

Went to the festival of speed and popped in to the barn for a bite to eat, Food was cold when it arrived, asked if it could be warmed up, Joel the manager eventually turned up and was so condescending and the most unhelpful guy I have ever come across, really should not be in this role, what a complete idiot, will never EVER return to this branch

Yeah, so its good value. But it's too much like being on a conveyor belt. They want you in and out as quickly as possible. Staff are unsmiling and monotone. Used to be really good but haven't been for a while and even tho manager was miserable and its gone downhill since. Too much local competition for them to be like this.

Visited the Harvester for breakfast, have to say it was nice..the only thing that put us off was having to listen to them hoovering around the restaurant...not particularly what I wanted to listen to at breakfast time...maybe they could do the hoovering before the place opens for breakfast apart from that no complaints.
