I rang very last minute on a Saturday night, hoping to get a table for 2 and although they were extremely busy, they did everything they could to fit me in - thank you so much. They were welcoming on arrival and sat us right in front of the salad bar (I felt very special indeed). Our waitress was fabulous... More

We come here every time we come to London. Always consistently good food and friendly staff. Happy relaxed place for us as a couple or when we bring the family. We look forward to our next visit.

It really annoys me when bar staff carry on a conversation amongst themselves whilst serving a customer. In this case it was a loud conversation - held over a distance - which needed to be interrupted in order to communicate with them. It's just plain rude - as though the customer is an irrelevance. The guy serving me was a... More

We were seated promptly and received courteous service from our waitress. Our food arrived within 10 minutes of ordering. With our order we were also allowed to use the salad bar. There were lots of choices at the salad bar, all the ingredients looked very fresh. I ordered the grilled chicken which was cooked well and tasted great. The portion... More

Having visited the old Harvester a few times but found the decor dark and unappealing we noticed that the outside looked different and decided to try it last night. Loved the new interior. Very warm and comfortable and spacious. We arrived at 9.30pm so we're very late but the woman who served us was smiley and pleasant. Salad bar had... More

It's a shame that Mitchell and Butler have changed the menu by such a degree. The old menu's gave customers a choice of sauces which seem to have disappeared. It's SMOKED or BARBECUE or PIRI PIRI or Ketchup or HP or bring your own now. I'm not Texan and prefer that my food is grilled the English way, not over... More

The last time I ate in this Harvester restaurant was over 10 years ago, and not a good experience. This time I was very impressed. The food was good. Service and atmosphere excellent as was the value. Definitely worth a try.

Thank you for your kind comments, Harvester has evolved in the last 10 years and it is always great when I hear we have turned around a poor experience fro previous visits, even if it was 10 years prior. We hope to look after you for many years to come. Paul&TeamRoyal More
