    The staff member who served us was very polite, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and a great improvement from the last time we visited. We were unsure whether to book again but we’re pleased we did.

    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

    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!

    Our waiter was very good, we found out it was his first day, but he engaged with us and everything arrived at just the right time. The food was well cooked and very enjoyable.

    The staff were lovely and very welcoming. The service was 100%. I was disappointed with the choice of menu, I don’t feel the menu was as good as it used to be.

    9.5/10

    Staff were great and the food was brilliant. The only slight critism( which I know can't be helped currently) was that the building wasn't big enough to have people queuing up between tables for the salad bar and blocking the pathway to the toilets but in time I suppose this won't be an issue as it will go back to self service. Can't really fault anything apart from what was mentioned above which really can't be helped in this current climate. Definitely recommend.
