No and pointed to the steak that was left and advised it was chewy and full of fat, yes received an apology but no reduction even an offer of a free desert may have gone down well. But... More

As pensioners we try to get out and about every week for a meal. We always enjoy our visit to the Harvester primarily because you get an unlimited salad bar - we think this is important when eating a balanced diet. Our last visit was particularly pleasing because we had a 33% off discount voucher. Never get anything off so... More

Have been going here for years and although there have been times where's it been a little bit average, it's never been terrible. Since they updated the menu a couple of years ago the foods been even better and staff very attentive. If I had to make one comment I'd say they could do with expanding the car park as... More

Had to wait a little while to be shown a table in an near empty Restuarant (Wednesday lunch). Pleasant staff served us throughout the meal. The salad bar which is usually a favourite for me was a little sad with near depleted bowls, it didn't look appertising or attractive. The steak was excellent and well worth the money as with...

We haven't been to this restaurant for a very long time. We decided the pay a visit due to the fact they had 33% off main meals. The restaurant was freezing cold, we had to keep our coats on. The out side area was filthy strewn with rubbish. Whe the meal arrived it was ok. We ordered extra mushrooms, nasty,greasy... More

I was here with my family and we ordered my 16 year old brother a beer (law states 16-17 year olds can drink beer, wine or cider with a meal if it is purchased by and adult over the age of 18) and the waitress ignorantly refused to serve him saying that he had to be over 18 to drink... More
