I can't review the food because it was so cold that we didn't stay long enough to order anyway. It is always cold in this Harvester for some reason but on Friday night the temperature was actually unbearable so we went home. I see from the previous review that we are not the only ones who have noticed. Turn the... More

Much smarter and cleaner inside, food was excellent as was the service. However the restaurant was freezing, our legs and feet were like ice when we left. The toilets were nice and warm but the seating area was cold. When we left we noticed all the upstairs windows were wide open as was one of the front doors. Shame, it... More

The 50% offer on the launch of the new menu was the attraction. Had given this place a miss for the past year or so as the food had gone downhill and refused to bottom out. The service is still slow and a another server or two would help. That said the staff work hard and are pleasant. Nice to... More
