Well, most people who frequently use Harvester restaurants know what to expect from them. But this was definitely more than the usual the meals we had was the belly pork with Mash potato and vegetables I had the Gammon and doubled up for the price difference so glad I did. The meals were beautiful and the staff so pleasant and helpful absolutely faultless in these days of covid suggest you book online. The usual restrictions still apply but no issue with this at all.

First time eating at harvesters this year, and would definitely recommend! Booking in was simple, booked a table online, at the desk they ask you to scan track and trace bar code, and take you to your table. Staff member was very informative and made it super easy to understand how they were going to serve you, mask wearing ect. Service was fast and efficient, and there was always a member on hand for questions, drinks, more salad ect. Food was served quickly and was hot, perfectly cooked and plentiful. I will definitely eat here again.

Really good experience in general, lovely waiter, but front of house well versed in impolite covid confrontation, never mind. Love the fact you've continued to do the full salad bar and bottomless drinks where others, such as pizza hut, use covid as an excuse to take the proverbial out of their customers and charge the same. Lovely food, it is what it is, but certainly no issues. Clean and safe environment, adherence to covid guidelines etc, but please explain this one: despite all that, and the less than pleasant experience upon entry fussing over covid, you sit customers next to - as in less than 2 metres from - the open salad bar? Utterly ridiculous.

We visited this "restaurant" last night after 6pm and after having previously eaten at a number of other Harvester Restaurants so we were expecting the same standard of menu choice and quality of food in addition to the "unlimited salad" bar. However, we were greatly disappointed, firstly with the menu and the fact that some of the options on the Main Menu were only available for Lunch or up until 5pm. In addition to this, the "unlimited salad" bar again was very limited in the choices available especially for those who can't eat beetroot, tomato or sweet-corn. When we then asked for the cucumber to be replenished, we were informed that it had "run out" and that they didn't have anymore - it was only 6.15pm !!!! So I think that the Manager should consider changing the wording to "Limited Salad" as this would give a better and more reflective description ??? We then tried to order our starters and main meals, only to find out that the 2 and 3 Course offer was from a different menu, again with very limited choices. When our food did arrive, the portion sizes and the quality of the food again left a lot to be desired, but when the waitresses collected the plates, not one of them asked whether everything was ok with the food especially bearing in mind that some of our plates were still quite full with food. The only redeeming part of our experience were the desserts, but then again you can't really spoil ice cream and sponge pudding. I think that you can tell from the content of this review that we won't be re-visiting this venue and certainly won't be recommending it to any of our family and friends.

The actual breakfast tasted great. However the service was appalling! The restaurant was very quiet with plenty of staff and yet we still sat over 30 minutes waiting for someone to come and take our breakfast order. This was only achieved by myself flagging down the waiter as he walked past us once again without any acknowledgement. While taking our order we queried if the fruit juice and hot drinks where refillable and if the unlimited continental was still running as the menu was a bit unclear - we never got an answer about the continental. Once the waiter brought our drinks there was no stirrer or spoon available to stir the milk into our hot drinks so we had to flag someone down yet again. Upon drinking my tea, as i got closer to the bottom i realised that the bottom of the inside of my cup was filthy with what appeared to be old thick coffee. I pointed this out to the waiter and he stated that ‘that looks disgusting’ and he offered to make me another. When our breakfast was delivered we once again had to request cutlery and we also had one of our items missing off the plate which was corrected once pointed out. All in all the breakfast tasted lovely however the service was by far the worst i have ever received. We didn't have any continental breakfast as we are still left unsure if this was in with the price so we have ended up spending £21.94 on two breakfast's that we could of got for under half that price from most other places. I have been a regular customer to Harvester for many years, I will now think twice about ever going again due to the appalling service.

So started off strange, but OK, lovely girl asked for our booking and to scan qr code which she got confused about because there was 2,but figured its new system was confusing so it was acceptable, after we were seated in a both we waited 20 minutes for our drinks order to be taken, bearing in mind I work in a restaurant bigger, with a lot less employees and there was literally 10 tables at most there and 6 waitresses/waiters serving, which is a lot for that size of resturant, after 20 minutes the waiter asked for our drinks order then proceeded to take another 20 minutes making them, which is OK because I asked for a cocktail which had just been put onto the new menu, however what proceeded after was absolutely unexceptable, and as I said I work in the same industry,.... so the waiter asked what salad we wanted then took our order which included starters, which came with in minutes of him finishing dishing our salad, however we didn't mind apart from the flies buzzing around us constantly, the really bad part was we got serves our mains before our salads or starters were finished or cleared, still with multiple flies buzzing around us and even when they served the mains they did not take the salad or starter plates form the table after we also clarified that there were multiple flies, to which they just chuckled, finally after another half hour and our waiter had vanished I asked a lovely young waitress if she would clearer the table before any more flies decended, she was most abliging and even commented how lovely the new cocktail smelled that I decided to order more than I would of at one point, as if by chance the magician waiter reappeared and told him he was not needed, just to look up and see the manager sitting on the computer... I work for the same company and that was totally the most horrific experience I have ever had, however I will be back after lockdown to see the improvements they have talked about as a team and will be eager to see their implementation.

Disappointing visit again today. Food was ok but overall service not good. The jewel in the crown has always been the salad bar, but no longer. Strangely you can do self service on the unlimited drinks but not self service on unlimited salad which makes no sense at all. Servers are too busy to do everything they have to plus serve salad. There should be one person serving at the salad bar, not having people standing at the salad bar waiting until their particular server becomes free. This was clearly a bone of contention with a number of people dining there. Our poor server was clearly extremely busy as were other servers. I felt really sorry for her. The manager was in the vacinity but made no effort to physically help her staff. She could have been more supportive and helped out more rather than standing at the bar area. She ignored the chef who came out with the dishes of salad when he asked her to serve salad. He was approached to serve it by people who had been standing there for some time wait for help. In the end he did serve them himself. We won’t be returning to this particular Harvester sadly and it would be nice to see all staff participating in the service of customers remembering as the customer you see everything going on around you.Maybe all staff should be reminded of that.

Hi Honeypiegirl, we can assure you that we do not find this type of behavior acceptable, and we would like to address the situation you have described. Unfortunately it’s a company decision for the salad bar to remain non selfserve as the feedback received on cleanliness has improved massively. There is no plans to change this in the near further.

Me & my partner went for food I don’t even know where to begin with the poor service we experienced we were seated in a corner perfect we then waited what felt like forever for a drinks order and a food menu we wanted a lunch menu the waitress shouting to another member “is lunch menu even on today” we were seated at 12 our food order hadn’t been taken till 20 past that was because my partner had to call we were ready to order the delays in food were ridiculous, we can’t fault the food itself the kitchen staff are doing a great job the staff out the front were miserable & had terrible attitude we were served by carmen. After waiting for our mains for 50 mins she come to the table asked “oh you haven’t had your mains” we were left with our bowls and menus still on our small table. Staff were appalling!!! & we will not be returning to harvester Talbot green.. also the sauces we had were all split from sitting in a sunny window

Few issues with our trip here. Waiters did their best but were rushed off their feet. Not sure if short staffed or people just called in sick. Food took about 40-50 minutes to arrive, plus the 10 mins we waited for our order to be taken. When food arrived 2 steaks were overdone (they were medium instead of rare). One of our party kept his steak (but it didn’t come with the mushrooms he asked for) The other sent his back, but when he got it back it was pretty blue and didn’t come with the gravy he originally asked for. By this point he just wanted to eat so didn’t ask for more gravy or another minute on the grill. The other 4 meals were fine however.

Arrived for our booked table and left standing for a good 10 mins was just about to leave when someone eventually acknowledge us. Seated at a sticky table with dirty cutlery we asked to be replaced. Service was very slow and food was not that warm and the soda machine was giving out flat sodas. The chips were cold in the middle and hard on the out side, Some of out meal was missing which we brought to the attention of a server never to be seen again. We ordered coffee which we never received and still got charged for. Instead of having a few drinks and enjoying a Birthday meal we left. We contacted the restaurant to complain and today had a stock reply saying they were very busy (no you were not) and they were short of staff well their were plenty standing around by the grill talking and to we made our complaint to that we had not received our full order on which we gave up on as obviously it was not forth coming as that server was not to be seen again. I have left leaving a review until we had heard off you but your reply beggars believe that you were very busy their were more empty tables than occupied and the food and service was sub par at best

I visited harvester Talbot green today as I have for many years. The lady at door was very friendly and waiter and waitresses . So ordered starters it came with missing stuff on there got the be fair waiter corrected problem straight away . Here comes my main meal were plate was full of water and blood cut into steak that I ordered med was oussing out with blood and red that looked rare not medium I don't know what is going on in this restaurant as I have said I visited this place for number of years and I have never had my food like this before I won't be returning . After this visit Again the lady at door did everything she could but I don't no if they got new chefs or something but my advise would be that they need to be retrained or learn the correct cooking times and listen to customers requests

I booked a table online, it was a last minute thing on the way back from my son's football game. We turned up and the lady looked like she didn't want us coming in......as she said "did you book a table last minute" and I just said "yes I booked it online'. The options online was 8:45pm or 9:00pm, so I booked for the 8:45 table for four people. We got seated and she just left our menues on the table and walked off without saying anything. The whole time we were sat there it felt like a rush to get us out and to be honest I couldn't wait to get out of there. The salad cart looked a bit of a mess and when asking for certain items, they said they didn't have any left which is fine..... but the lovely young lady who was the only helpful one there said to use "we close at nine so we tend not to top things up". We were okay with that because I understand that they would have to throw things out at the end of the night. If the place stops serving at 9:00, then the online booking system should have last booking for 8:30 not 9:00. I will not be returning to this harvester, instead we will be going to our local one in sarn where we have always had lovely service.

Booked a table for 2. When we arrived we waited approximately 10 minutes to be seated. We then waited a further 10 minutes until asked what drinks we would like. Once ordered we waited and waited. We saw our waitress then help a queue of people to their salad ( still waiting for our drinks ). We waited a further 5 minutes and still no service. We spoke to a waitress and asked to cancel our table. No apology at all.

Having just left Harvester Sarn (which we had pre-booked) due to them being out of stock of various items on the menu, we arrived at Talbot Green and really enjoyed our visit. We were accommodated even though we had not booked and all three staff we encountered were really personable and attentive. The food was deliciously cooked and piping hot. We'll come here in future and give Sarn a miss!
