Meals lovely. Friendly staff. Louise lovely waitress. Looking closly at decor. Walls and curtains dirty, reception booking in desk very dirty round bottom. This was only noticable as we were sat there. Needs a clean.

Came here for a few drinks with friends, it wasnt particulary busy but took ages to be served with approx 5 staffmembers repeatedly walking in and around the bar and ignoring waiting customers. One of the male staff that eventually served was particulary miserable and could hardly hear him speak, cheer up son you are in a job!! Tables were... More

Have eaten at many different Harvesters and have always been pleased with the quality of food and portion sizes. We visited the Honey Pot after returning home from a traffic jam ridden journey from the Lake District and looked forward to a hearty meal before taking the final 5 minute journey home (couldn't be bothered to cook!). They weren't exceptionally... More

The staff were friendly and attentive however unfortunately the food was very poor - probably the worst chicken wings I have ever had in my life! We were also sat next to a draft window and were freezing. There's a lot of other restaurants nearby and we left wishing we had chosen somewhere else.

I recently visited with 2 other friends. Found service fast but not always correct. They seemed like they maybe short on staff. So maybe we arrived on the night one called in sick who knows. But we wasnt in a rush and the waitress read this well. We enjoyed our slow dinner and drink. The chick stack was very good... More

Most of the Harvester's have had a referb and better salad bars with help yourself to different sauces. This one dosen't yet you pay the same so i would recommend 5 bells Harvester instead. Food was nice but i would rather go to the more modern one.

Never disappointed here. The food isn't great but it is so affordable for families and the staff are always happy to go the extra mile. Perfect for kids and a friendly family atmosphere every time. Not all harvesters are the same. This is a good one.
