Restaurant description

Moments from the tranquil open spaces of Priory Country Park, and with a huge lawn for al fresco dining, Harvester Orchard is a popular pub restaurant for lovers of the great outdoors. The menu is packed with home-style British flavours, with ales and international wines served up at the bar.

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 Bedford. 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.

Offering something for everyone thanks to its versatile menu and reasonable prices, Harvester Orchard is 9 minutes' drive from Bedford St John's Rail Station.
