    It is a family restaurant and so you know you expect to have families however there was a table of really noisy ill behave children although I understand that there’s really nothing you can do about that but it did spoil the ambience a little bit for us They were obviously finding it difficult to keep up with the speed that the solid bar was being visited as a number of the selections were not available having been emptied.

    Our server Martissa was top-notch. She was polite, attentive, efficient, and very pleasant to deal with.. Food was as good as you would expect from here, but prices have been noticeably hiked up since the refurb with no real improvement to the food quality.

    Didn't take our request into consideration. Food on floor . Empty salad bar. Got served straight away but then felt rushed . Wasn't too busy. .

    This Harvester is really pleasant, ambience was lovely and service by Martessa was attentive and very pleasant. Food was lovely and arrived very quickly, we were able to enjoy our meal without any sense of hurry. Would highly recommend this particular Harvester

    Two of the items on the menu we wanted to order were unavailable.. Service was slower than usual. One of the salad bowls we were given had dried food stuck to it.... But apart from that, the food we did order was ok.

    The fork booking service didn't work despite email confirmation. Stress as booked because half term and I knew it would be busy. Great meal and service and kids enjoyed it too

    Our server was outstanding. Kind and attentive. The food is really nice for the price - it isn't top quality but the price does reflect this. The ambience is okay..very much a louder restaurant for families

    Typical Harvester Restaurant although tonight it was very quiet,YET, we were being continually rushed to order our meal. Once we had finished the main course asked if we wanted a desert and having said NO, asked if we wanted the bill. We still had wine in the bottle we bought and in our glasses. We eventually asked for the bill and went at our leisure. There was plenty of tables empty so why the rush ???

    We would recommend this restaurant as an experience in delicious food, superb and special care from the staff (especially Aimee), and the joyful atmosphere. The food was beautifully presented, the salad bar had excellent choice, and the desserts were tasty. What a lovely place to spend an evening with such care.

    We dined on a very busy Saturday evening but were served pretty quickly and in a friendly way. Drinks came quickly and the starter quite soon after. Main was a bit slow and not entirely hot but acceptable. Overall not bad and service was fine

    We were lucky enough to have the same lovely waitress we had on our last visit. Lovely meal with excellent service. Our whole experience of our lunch today was perfect

    We opted for the festive menu. The mushrooms in cheese sauce were horrible, sauce was overpowering, dry the sauce had a film over top. My main was cold, o asked for extra gravy, never came,. 2nd visit here this month poor experience both times, won't be back!

    The food was really prepared very well and had a nice presentation. The beef dripping gravy really complemented the chips for example. Zoe our waitress for the evening was very helpful and although fairly new, was still efficient. Wait time for the food was very acceptable. I would recommend.

    Not a bad restaurant, our waitress Tess was absolutely wonderful, so friendly and welcoming, she's a credit to the Harvester. The food was presented well, and pleasant, we were not rushed, had plenty of time to enjoy.

    Great venue, a very warm welcome from friendly helpful staff . Excellent food range delivered to the table quickly and still hot. I particularly liked the Chicken combo with extra chips. A great place to take the family or a friend.

    As expected, wait time was fairly long due to the current restrictions, the poor waitress got in a muddle having to write down all the salad options people wanted and who wanted it, food was nice and tasty as usual but what you get for the cost now makes sense as they have to put prices up to cover so much loss, but on a good note our waitress was very chatty and attentive, she deserved the tip I gave her ...

    Very familiar with this restaurant and it’s good food and services. The front of house were efficient and quick to check us in on arrival. Our waiter was very good and his service was reflected that.
