    Lovely salad bar. Appalling service. Booked for 5pm. Starter came out at 6.20pm. Medium steak was black. Fish was raw. Wrong drinks brought out. Ran out if time for dads birthday desserts, coffees etc as had children with us. Asked for their meals early but still nearly 1.5hrs after booking time.

    The food was okay but the dining experience itself was ruined by loud music playing in the background which inevitably nobody listens too anyway but for some reason restaurants think they need to play. As my father is 90 and fairly hard of hearing we spent most of the meal in silence as he could not hear a word I was saying and I could not hear him. The music plus the noise of other customers and the kitchen was too much and you should consider dispensing with the music. There must be other older visitors who find this an issue. I am realising how much hearing loss is a hidden disability and how this is not considered by retailers. Take a leaf out of Wetherspoons book.

    Service very slow and when the steak arrived it was well cooked but luke warm to the point where the parsley butter on top didn't melt.

    Booking a table was easy staff very good but computer went wrong so had to be reasked what we had ordered. Complained about the cappuccino I ordered was like warm and tasteless and although they removed it from the bill and was told it was because the machine was broken and they had done filter coffee and hot milk. If I had been told I would of had a filter black coffee. Long wait for staff to take desert order lucky I was meeting a friend for a catch up

    There was nobody at the reception bit when we got into restaurant for what seemed like ages. There were a few tables not cleared away. The restaurant was half empty, but a chap outside in the car park told us that we would have to wait an hour. We told him that we had booked so that was fine. The girl that served us was nice, but when we were ready to pay she was nowhere to be seen. We waited for a while, then got another girl's attention. She took our money. We usually leave a tip, but not this time.

    Awful! Took 15 minutes for a waitress to come a see us and take our drinks order. Another 45 minutes for the food to arrive, Luke warm at best. The waitress was very pleasant and apologetic to the extent we git 20% off the bill, but to be honest there is something fauna mentally wrong when a brand like Harvester cannot serve food and drink promptly, when that's is your primary role. I fear we will not be returning especially as there are now do many alternatives close by.

    What can I say! We arrived at 7pm and had to wait 45mins for our food and we weren't the only ones,the excuse was that we had changed our choice from chips to jacket potoato, well I don't know what the chef was doing but apart from being microwaved mine and my sister is laws were only partially cooked. Our waitress tried her best and got us a complementary drink and because she knew we weren't happy with the whole experience we received 20% off the bill. I have to say I would rather have paid the full price and had a decent meal as none of our meals were really up to standard which was embarrassing as we had taken my brother and his wife there for a treat as we had been to a Harvester in York with them and had a good meal. This was an experience I doubt we will be repeating!!!
