    The table was booked for 10 people two weeks ago!.However we were squashed on to a table for 8 people, not only that 1 of those seats was right up against a beam therefor no-one could fit there comfortably to eat. Resulting in us having to request an additional table to be added, resulting in another table then being squashed. We often eat here as a large party of between 6 and 10, and feel that the restaurant struggles to cater for this size party as we are very often packed in like sardines, thus resulting in us considering another venue that can cater for us. However we can not fault the food or the service.

    Had to wait 5 minutes to be shown to our seats even though no one waiting. Very disappointed with the salad bar. Most dishes were empty and no plates for rolls. Otherwise typical Harvester and good service by our waitress.

    We've not been to a Harvester restaurant for a few years due to bad experiences & decided to give it another go having heard that there had been lots of improvements. To be honest I wish we hadn't bothered, disappointing is an understatement! The area in which we sat contained 2 tables & narrow & cramped & not easy to get in & out of with my disabled mother & a young child. It was also very noisy as a member of staff was having lunch with her family at the table next to us & they kept shouting over each other. Also her clothing didn't appear to fit her properly as trousers were half way down her back & we got repeated views of her butt crack - very off putting when you are trying to eat!!! The food wasn't great either, my husband's steak was under cooked, he asked for medium-well done, but it was more like medium-rare. In fairness they did take this off the bill but it was his birthday and he didn't get a decent meal! My original combo was mediocre to say the least, the chicken was greasy & it wasn't very hot & my daughter's ribs weren't very nice either, she said they were fatty! No one came to ask us how the meal was until we were practically finished, so it was too late for the issues, with the steak in particular, to be addressed. The salad cart looked grubby & the items looked like they had been there for some time & we had to ask them to replace the lettuce & croutons as they were empty when we got there. I don't think I will ever go back to a Harvster again!!!

    Booked table , was ready when we arrived. Bit of a wait to get drinks but good when arrived. Food was delivered quickly and of good value. Very pleasant young lady server. Nice to see that money has been spent on the pub/restaurant as it was in much need of refurbishment and result is very pleasant.

    Very disappointed in salad bar I found it did not look appetising and there was only 4 items that I was prepared to try. Potato salad and coleslaw which are my favourite just did not look nice, also I found the menu has changed and their is not a great choice I struggled to find something and opted for bbq chicken stack only to leave most of the meal as I did not enjoy. My friends and myself was all disappointed in something and it's a great shame as we are quite regular to this restaurant but have decided to try either the one in Mk centre or the one at Fox Milne in the future.

    Seats were squashed and uncomfortable. Message outside said some offers were not available because of new menu, but apparently no harvester offers were available anyway.
