Food came quick, I mean within 15 mins. Food was hot and not completely tasteless. Corn on the cob was rubbish. Was my the best but it was ok-ish.

Reluctantly went to the harvester for a second time after a very bland first visit. It wasn’t any better. Chips were hard on the outside abs chewy in the inside, obviously re-heated. Boring menu. Slow service.

The quality of food provided at Harvester restaurants can vary quite considerably and this branch is one of the better ones which provides a very good selection of well cooked food.

Ordered half a rotisserie chicken, bland food, not good quality. Rolls were a bit stale, but the staff were nice enough. No wonder it was empty.
