    Our table was ready when we arrived and there was a warm and friendly welcome. The restaurant was extremely busy and they had sold out of the chicken which was disappointing but suitable substitutes were offered. Our meals were all excellent and our waitress looked after us well. Will definitely return.

    The waitress had no idea how to serve. She came up with our main coursewhilst two of us were still eating starters. She wanted to leave it on the table but we insisted she return it to the Kitchen until we were ready. Never had such bad service. We were seated to the left as you enter the restaurant, haven't day there before. The staff on the other side are excellent, can't speak have they enough!!

    Very easy to book on line and the staff worked brilliant. A very special mention to our waitress Claire who made us feel special throughout our dining experience. She worked tirelessly and fully deserved this high recognition of acknowledgement. The food was second to none and everything was fresh and balanced with great presentation

    It’s a reasonable price menu and two of my children had steak and it was beautiful, my steak was over cooked , fatty and horrible. The lovely waitress got me some chicken so I could still eat with everyone else it was nice. I hate to complain but I had to. Everyone else had a lovely meal.

    Service was very good, only complaint was that the chips were cold on one order but when we told the waitress she was very apologetic and soon had a fresh bowl as a replacement, so we have been to the harvester many times before and see no reason to not go again

    Great main course. Disappointing salad bar a number of standard items missing

    No faults with the staff or place itself, but the food was terrible! The chicken combo was dry and as thin as the sole of a shoe. The children's chicken strips had been grilled so much my grandson could not chew them. I haven't been to The Harvester Stanway in a long time and I won't be going back in a hurry. Please sort out your chef!

    The place is amazing. The food outstanding and the waiter we had was the friendliest and most helpful person. It was my birthday and he made it a special night.
