Restaurant description

A charming pub with exposed brick walls and cosy nooks throughout, Harvester Five Bells is a popular spot for honest home-style dining. As well as signature grill delicacies, there are plenty of sharing-style recipes and an indulgent dessert list that's hugely popular.

From its succulent grill selection to the celebrated unlimited salad bar, the Harvester menu is packed full of wholesome flavours for the whole family. Rotisserie chicken cooked in a secret blend of spices is available alongside tender smoked ribs marinated in signature BBQ sauce, while smaller tapas-style dishes are perfect for sharing, with options like spicy crackerjack prawns, and smoked pork and cheddar and jalapeno sausage. There are generous combo platters, juicy steaks, well-stacked burgers, and a great salad selection with premium additions.

All kinds of sweet treats are served on the dessert menu at this Harvester in the Basildon. The Sundae selection loads real dairy ice cream with toppings like warm chocolate fudge brownie, Oreo® biscuit crumb, raspberries and marshmallows, while classic options like Cherry Pie accompany fantastic vegan options like our tangy blackcurrant mousse on a light biscuit base. From the bar, there are world beers, spirits, and speciality soft drinks for the kids.

Serving up honest, wholesome recipes for reasonable prices, Harvester Five Bells is 5 minutes' drive from Basildon Rail Station.

    Had a lovely meal with my mother. Everything was nice, and we got served very quickly.

    Lovely staff and good the only thing the last 2 times we have been there is it’s very cold . We were told the first time the heating had broken down . But it was still cold and we asked to be moved away from the aircon but we still had to keep our coats on . I’m saying no to the next question only because it’s not very comfortable eating a meal with your coats on.

    Disappointed with the venue, our first choice on the menu was not available, an extra portion of chicken did not arrive with the meal and turned up when half way through eating which was subsequently sent back. The pasta meal was not hot and had to be sent back. All in all not a very satisfactory experience.

    I must say that our meals were of the highest quality, I had the sea bass, and my wife went for the spicy chicken and prawns, our compliments to the chef. The reason that I will not be awarding 5 stars is that, firstly the bar did not have any bitter beer, and secondly I was served my wine in a dirty glass, this was changed straight away.
