    The waitress was very friendly, chatty and has a sense of humour. That made the meal experience very enjoyable. The food was good especially the salad bar. The corn on the cob was fresh which i did enjoyed, usually I leave it .

    MIxed feelings about this booking. Was really looking forward to returning to this Harvester. Fairly long wait to be seated, even though we had a booking. Probably due to not enough staff being available Unfortunately the salad bar was quite sparse, as were the bread roll trays. Service was good but there was no pineapple rings left as an option with the Gammon Steaks. The replacement fried eggs were overcooked and solid. and the fires were inedible due to them tasting of onions !!! Decided not to stay for any further courses, paid the bill and left.

    We had booked for my birthday we arrived and were taken to our table given menus and ordered drinks the drinks arrived we continued to choose our meals. When we were asked what we would like we ordered Salmon and cod n Chips to then be told they had run out of both. We felt compelled to stay as we were drinking our bottle of wine and other drinks had we have been told this at the start we would have gone. One of our party is a vegetarian and so was very limited. All the meals were over cooked and not presented very well. A lot of the salad bar options were empty and took a long time to be refiled after asking. Ruined Birthday meal.

    The food was good but the service was very slow. We had two toddlers with us who got bored having to wait so long. We realised it was busy but they needed more staff, table booked for 5pm we couldn't sit down as it wasn't ready for us until 5:20. Then we were waiting to order for ages after our meal, and we were again waiting ages to order desserts and it was 7:00pm the children were tired and grumpy. The waitress was in a mood with no people skills and spent ages talking to a couple of ladies on and other table and we were waiting for our table to be cleared and order deserts, then it took ages for deserts to arrive, we all enjoyed the food but the delays were just too long.
