Arrived about 5 pm, seated promptly and drinks came quickly. Salad bar fully stocked as fresh Main courses were prepared quickly, but sat on the counter for a good ten minutes before being served cold. Waited ages for sweet menu and ended up having to ask for bill in a hurry as 2 hour parking ticked was about to expire.... More

Average restaurant its a harvester so what you would expect apart from if you visit this restaurant you will quite likely end up with a £85 parking ticket even if you pay to park in the car park, they will claim ticket not displayed or some other poor excuse. Shame as the restaurant is ok and the park outside is... More

Hi BatesNigel Thanks for reviewing the car park at the Oakmere House. The car park uses a number plate recognition system and when you enter your details at the ticket machine it prevents any untoward charges. This is clearly displayed throughout the area. More

We went here with my daughter and her 4 children after popping in for a lunch one day. I hadn't been for a while and was pleasantly surprised at how it had improved! Looked so much nicer. Food so much nicer, even the salad cart was better! Definitely will be going back.

This was the first time we've been to this harvester since the refurb. WOW! The place looks amazing and everything about our visit was perfect. We were sat down by a lovely guy called Matt, he was friendly and welcoming. Made us feel at home the second we walked through the door. When we sat down he took a drink... More

Had an evening meal here and it was amazing. My Mum has a small appetite so the salad and tapas style starters were brilliant for her! I had a fillet steak which was cooked to perfection! The service was also spot on. The restaurant & bar both look completely different to before and what they have done to the garden... More

Hi Thanks for the fab review and for concentrating on the experience rather than the car park. Unfortunately the management of the car park has been taken over by a separate company and it is taking time for us all to get used to it. Let us know you are in on your third visit so that we can thank... More

So I was in traffic on the m25 and turned off ended up near this big mansion house and a beautiful park, turns out to be a harvester and it's beautiful. Spent a lot longer there than planned as the garden was so peaceful with a coffee which was delivered to me in the garden. Fantastic place to go. Thank... More
