Waited 20 minutes to get a drink after finding a server. Spent one hour before food arrived and the second course arrived whilst still eating the first course.
The place as no heating it’s freezing and I felt sorry for the staff having to work in those conditions.
Had to ask for cutlery,, salt etc .
The bill we where overcharged by £20 , which was rectified.
The food was fine. Not blaming the staff .. they where very understaffed working in unacceptable conditions.
But will not be going again .

I came into the Harvester with my daughter & grandson on Thursday 3rd June 2021. The staff are fabulous but my 2 star rating is on account of one of the worst ever steaks I have ever had. It was gristly, I took it home for my dogs & they even had problems chewing it. Never again will I allow my daughter to waste nearly £14.00 on an inedible piece of meat.

Not happy today. As regular customers we do appreciate these difficult times for everyone. But the food was not good. The burgers were really dry as were the buns. We were given a discount but that did not make up for the disappointment on this occasion

First visit in a long time this evening! And it was great! I had the rack of ribs (as always!) this time with spicy fries which I’d never tried before! I really enjoyed the meal. All the staff were friendly but a special mention to ‘Annabelle’ who looked after myself and my friends at our table. Her service was friendly and efficient which certainly added positively to the visit. Will certainly return.

revisited since the new lift of rules has been applied but the Harvester is still operating a well managed and safe business in line with restrictions. Food as always was really good and the service was excellent.

Friendly and helpful staff. Nice food but had ran out of what we wanted as we went later on. So will go earlier next time and will the hopefully be a 5* :-)

Good food , good service, but they've done away with the "buffet style" help yourself salad bar, I'm sure I won't be the only person feeding back negatively on this point. That said ,it's still a good place to eat.

What a lovely meal we had. My daughter and I had the 2 course lunch. We had the same starters but different mains. It was all cooked beautifully and hot when it arrived. The salad bar was well stocked and staff who served it were lovely. All the staff were great. Very welcoming as we haven't been for a long time. Service excellent. Thanks for a lovely time.

It has been years since my wife & I last visited Harvester, but this time will be certainly be much much sooner to be back again.
Like the title says expected nothing but came away very pleased, the service was excellent, very friendly and helpful staff, always smiling and very polite. The meal was very fresh and cooked excellently, and for the pricing very good. 3 course meal for £12 you can't fault that at all. We really couldn't fault anything. If Harvester could do anything to improve it would be maybe to redecorate the restaurant looks a little worn, but nevertheless the staff and meal was a lot more than expected and would fully recommend.

Terrible food but excellent staff.
Mixed grill was 22£ and it was shockingly bad. Asked for steak well done and it was tht black it could have been served in urn.
Kids ice cream was warm milk.
Also short staffed and the place was filthy.

Lovely place, staff are so helpful, nothing too much trouble, we'll done, my granddaughter has coeliac disease, and they were brilliant in telling us what she could have, (instead of jacket potato and chicken) food is cooked separately so no cross contamination., she was over the moon she could have something different, food is lovely 🙂🙂🙂

Food was lovely 2 of the extra large mix grills, for big eaters very tasty but they struggled. Turf, surf and bird decent size portion but chicken was a bit too spicy for me. Salad bar was served to you
but as always nice and fresh. Drinks 2 double gin and tonics and a pint of carling just over £18.00.
Lovely meal, staff very helpful, but restaurant was cold.
Would go back but taking a jacket next time.

We came for breakfast with 3 children. The kids loved their pancakes and they let us exchange chocolate for syrup on one. We ordered the steak and hash browns, which was good but the steak a little tough in parts. The server Elle, was lovely and friendly and service was quick. Overall we had a nice brunch!

Been here a number of times and always enjoyed it nice food,nice atmosphere but today disappointed us. Staff were lovely, helpful but short staffed left us waiting and went looking for staff and heard other customers say where are the staff. I hope this improves. I'm sure it will.

It's been a while since I visited The Harvester as I was really put off the last time.
I have to say that this time it was much improved... The food was delicious, the server was fabulous, (thank you Jess) and the environment was very pleasant. The toilets were very clean too, a transformation from my visits previously, when I had repeatedly complained about them not being clean.
I will definitely be coming back, especially since there is a choice of vegan options on the menu and the salad bar was very good. 😋

Nice place for lunch, very good deal with set menu (2 or 3 courses). We chose the set menu and there were enough options to choose from, also a few vegetarian dishes. A nice bonus was a free salad bar. Food was tasty and arrived quite quickly. Our waitress was very nice. I also really liked the decorations, felt very cosy and comfortable. Outside there's a big parking lot. I can recommend this place for a quick lunch at a good price.

We haven't been to this Harvester for at least 5 years and the previous experience was not good,
However after a check of the reviews, all good, we booked and the four of us went for lunch.
The food and service is superb, the salad bar was very good and every one loved their meals
The server Jess was superb, great service with a smile, happy to talk through the menu when a choice wasn't available.
Will definitely be back

We were sat for slightly longer than we expected before our drinks order was taken due to it being a Monday and not overly busy but our waitress Elle or Ella sorry I can't remember 100% was incredible, she was attentive and had a great personality and had a giggle and was very accommodating when it came to our needs.

Harvester is always a go to if we are ever unsure what to get. From breakfast, dinner or tea they always have a great selection. The salad bar is always stocked full of great items. The bottomless soft drink station is always good and great for the kids even if they do mix all the different flavours together.
Thomas Harrison2 months ago
It good place and you can help yourself to salad and they do refill soft drinks and friendly Staff.
The chicken was a bit dry and the gravy was a bit watery and ribs was good but not as much taste but corn the cob was delicious.
