Service was good, however the food was pretty bland and poorly cooked. I had the combo and the ribs lacked flavour, the sweet corn was over cooked and watery. It isn't even that good value.

My husband and I were just going into Sainsbury's to do a bit of shopping just before early closing on a Sunday, we decided on the spur of the moment to fill ourselves up here instead of cooking when we got home. What a pleasant surprise we had! We ordered 2 beers (Doombar) and I had the Half Rotisserie chicken... More

A family get together in a very friendly atmosphere, with all the choices of main course, that we required, available. The salad bar was particularly excellent with many items that we had not seen in other Harvesters....Very Good. Well worth a return visit when we are next in the area, and did much to re-instate our faith in Harvester, after... More

Good value food. Waiting staff friendly and efficient. Salad bar always welcome. Popular with families and children. Early afternoon seems to be a good time for a late lunch when it's quieter.

As the title suggests we went for breakfast. The restaurant opened a few minutes late but wasn't an issue. Waiter friendly but went through the cooked breakfast options in a sort of military style Q&A session, whereby if he had listened instead of "grilling" (pardon the pun) he'd have got the order sooner. Breakfast toast/muffin/crumpet selection almost tucked away but... More

The food was very hot, and tasty. We had a party of 9 and our food arrived together, whereas sometimes when we have gone out together some have had to wait.
