Stopped by here on my way back from 'The Ice cream farm'. Staff were very friendly and food presentation was very good . Our grandchildren eat from the children's menu and the food was presented in a very professional way, making the children feel important (which they are).

We visited The Old Trooper tonight and were very impressed with the friendly service, quality and presentation of our meals. Our waitress was fab, we'll definitely be visiting again and would recommend to others :) So much better than the Stanney Oaks Harvester!!!

Excellent! Visited last night for a family tea. The service was superb, from arrival onwards. Such a truly brilliant waiter ( Dan) combination of efficiency but also very warm and friendly - he is a real gem for Harvester. The food was tasty and hearty. Rump Steaks were cooked as requested as a perfect medium and amazing sticky chicken wings.... More

It definitely exceeded our expectations. The only criticism we had was the salad bar. Not sure if it was because it was around 9pm that... More
