Visited for an evening meal with the family recently - it was fairly busy but we'd pre-booked so no issues in getting a table.

The lady serving us was a little grumpy at first as she asked for our drinks order and we hadn't seen the drinks menu so didn't know what to order so she stomped off. I remember visiting here a few years ago and had an issue with the same lady which led me to complain to the manager at the time. Disappointing that she still finds the time to be rude / moody.

On to the meals - we ordered a rack of ribs, burger, fish and chips and a steak. The food took a while to be delivered but when it arrived was quite good. I enjoyed my ribs and the portion size on the fish was good as well.

The lady serving us had now cheered up and checked if our meal was ok and asked if wanted deserts which we opted against.

Food was good, service was ok and price wasn't bad.

Visited here last weekend for a family breakfast. It was Father’s Day and we hadn’t booked so we were told it wasn’t busy and they might not have a table. Luckily they found one and we could enjoy our breakfast. We had cooked breakfasts and I had the pancakes with fruit which were nice. Good selection of juices and breakfast bar available. Friendly service, would come again.

We dined here earlier today. Booked a table online which was already made up for us on arrival. Our waitress was speedy, got everything right and was lovely.
All our food was delicious and hot and the salad bar well stocked. Everywhere was beautifully clean and tidy.
I’ve not visited since the refit and new menu but we will be visiting more often.
5 stars all round.

We all know the harvester isnt a michelin star restaurant but it does exactly what its suppose to. It delivers consistant nice food and nice service. Its a great family restaurant and as for the breakfast they are brilliant. Yeah sometimes you wait a little longer than normal sometimes your servers are busy but what do you expect for a fair priced restaurant. Relax and enjoy your food and drinks.
