Always enjoy the salad bar especially the blue cheese dressing and the bread rolls! The staff are always friendly and the ribs and chicken I have everytime. Company do good discounts on the app too.

We visited the Bell and Barge on the 4th February for a family meal (7 adults, of which 4 are vegetarian). We had booked in advance so when we arrived we were seated quite quickly. The waitress then passed us a typed note apologising for certain items not being on the menu and a list of the items, bad news... More

Visited with wife and family over from Ireland. Pleasant waitress showed us to our table. Not busy so we did not expect any problems. Meals arrived at a sensible pace and were OK with some reservations. Chips were of dubious quality and quantity and not very warm!! One of the three simply chicken was VERY OVERDONE. In fact if it...

I've been to this harvester for more than two years, I came on a Saturday night, so it was very busy. My mum booked us a table so we didn't have to wait. When we arrived, the table was almost ready. So we had to wait around two minutes for them to finish getting it ready. We then got taken... More

OMG don't do it this place sucks. Poor service food is terrible and to add insult to injury you have to wait nearly an hour before you get any. The beer is flat. I'm not a fan of harvester but this one is the worst one ever
