It was my unfortunate pleasure to eat at this establishment on Friday 14/4/17. The food was over done , The service was the crappiest I have experienced for a long time. Even over charged at the end, The assistant manager who served us ,informed us he had five tables to attend to, and this was the reason it was so... More

We have been to this restaurant fairly regularly, like the free bowl of salad before the meal, food is quite good, lovely helpful staff, reasonable prices.

Afternoon Kate, Sorry that you were not happy with your table when you visited us, we had no intention of making you feel uncomfortable and squashed in with other guests. Did you speak to a member of the team to perhaps be reseated? The bench seating area is a key feature to the bottom floor of the dinning area so... More

Having booked a table for seven people I was disappointed to find we had been given a table tucked away right by the kitchen doors and under the stairs. We were meeting up with family though so were determined to not let it spoil things. We had to ask for the glasses for our drinks and the Pepsi machine could... More

Good afternoon Anya, Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback, sorry to hear that you were not happy with your allocated table. Regrettably, we do only have a certain amount of tables which can accommodate parties over 5 in the restaurant, add to this the increased number of guests coming to us during the Easter holidays....

Went for a family lunch with the kids at the weekend, and was impressed. The new management team (Steven, Paul, and Team leader Natalie) have really turned things around. We'd been in for Mother's Day too and was equally impressed. We used to be regulars, and we've been back a few times recently. Natalie's looked after us on a few... More

Having moved out of the area two years ago, we made a return visit to High Wycombe and had lunch at the Harvester. You can rely on receiving the same quality of food at every Harvester but the value for money has gone downhill over the last few years. For about the same price we used to have a Chicken... More
