“Good service second visit”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Went here with my partner a couple of weeks ago. Meal was good and the service also, I had my first burger in 28 years and I must say it was outstanding. Cooked to perfection no fat a pure steak burger flame grilled as described.

My parnters meal was also very good.

My only criticism is the place is very noisy the staff are first rate and nothing was too much trouble.

“Such a change from our last visit!”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Two grandchildren were staying with us just for the night and we had something to celebrate so we let them chose a restaurant. To our consternation they opted for the Harvester. We had had a bad experience last time we went and it was with some trepidation we agreed to go how pleased we were that we went and what a difference a change of staff makes. Our server was full of life and did everything he could to make our visit special for us. The manager also took time to see us and make us feel welcome. Even though the restaurant was busy we were soon served and the food was very good and served hot by our very friendly server. My wife and I opted for the Christmas meal, it was good but like most restaurants of this type the sprouts were not very good. The only downside really. We will be back despite our earlier bad experience.

“Poor”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

The service was good but we were the only customers in. Considering there was no rush they managed to over cook the salmon and the carrots and sprouts were mushy. We asked if the veg was frozen but no it's fresh so how they managed to make it taste so bad I don't know. We pointed out the over cooked salmon and veg and were offered no recompense.

“Atmosphere good food very poor”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Our food was on the serving counter for at least 20 minutes before we finally asked another waiter when we would be served. It was cold and my wife couldn't cut her cod it was so tough.
They were sent back, they came back re-heated with another cod.
The cod was the worst we have ever had it was about as thick as a rasher of gammon, there was 4 times more batter than fish. The macaroni cheese appeared to have been cooked in water not sauce with a little cheese sprinkled in the centre only. The chips were poor and only warm.

“Meh... Slow service and attitude!”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Well firstly, we asked if we could have a booth and were told that we couldn't... So we went to walk out and were then given a booth... Now the place was not full at all so don't know why they were being so precious over them!

There was a burger on the pass for at least twenty mins. It took a while to get the mains and they were out of bread rolls.

We has a bad experience here before but believe it is three strikes and you are out so they have one more chance with us... I wasn't impressed though!
