“Evening meal with work associates”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Group of 7 went for an evening meal aprox 1930, the initial service was quite quick but slowed down once the orders were taken. Ran out of gammon, dropped on meal on the floor and had no chicken to replace it with. Price was reasonable and could be we went on an off day, Saying that other Harvesters I have been too are on a similar par with this one. Food is OK but nothing to shout about get what you pay for

“Poor Menu”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Called in for a quick snack, however there were none - no sandwiches which is all myself and three friends required - only 'main meals' served. We left.

“dissapointing and terrible service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

I went to this resturant with my friends hoping to have a nice meal. We saw the menu and thought it had a great range of meals at a great price .We chose our meals and then a waitress took our orders but her computer she used for orders was not working so she said she would remember all our orders. After listing our orders she asked if there was anything else we would like ,we said no and she replied saying good which was rude. While waiting for our orders we had the unlimited salad and it was ok but felt uncomfortable as a man on the table next to ours would not stop looking at us and talking to us. Our orders came quite quickly but items on the plates were mixed up and one of us never received our order. After waiting a few more minutes we asked the waitress that served us where the salad was my friend had ordered for £3.99 and she told us it was the salad bar you got the salad from. I thought it was terrible as there is not much selection at the salad bar and could hardly call it a salad when there was no lettuce left. The meal was ok but I was just put off by the service and atmosphere,I had ordered the £9.99 Meal deal but was so dissapointed with our experience we searched for a waiter so we could pay and go. This was my first trip to harvester and I will not be going again the service was terrible.

“Probably the worst Harvester in the world !!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

As a regular visitor to Harvester and accepting they are not 100% on the ball as all there restaurants always have a problem with one thing or another, But this vist has to be the worst visit ever but having said that it was Friday 13th !!!
We arrived at about 5pm, the girl quickly took our order and told us to help our selves to the salad, which we were sure had been vastly reduced in selection with both sides of it been identical ?? but perhaps im wrong on just that 1 thing. We ate our salad and still waited for our drinks, eventually we had to flag someone doen to chase them up, a short while later they came in Hot Glasses...................................................................................
After a considerable wait our food finally arrived and was plonked on the table by a member of management i presume due to the lack of uniform, our party all looked at the food and said together this is cold ! that was before we even touched it.
I had to go and find a member of staff to tell about the problem, she came straight away and took them away, within minutes the same member of management brought back the dishes again plonked them on the table muttering "De-Ja-Vu" and walked off.
The food was the exact same as what was taken away, not even moved on the plate, One of the party had the Harvester Fish n Chips which was served with mushy peas these were so cold that they were set in a lump, Another member had the chicken combo, both the chicken and the ribs were cold, The corn was still raw. The 3rd member of the party had cheese + bacon chicken burger. The bun was so dry it was crisp, the burger had a cold cooked slice of bacon layed on a piece of unmelted cheese. We picked and poked at the food for over half an hoiur. No one came to check if everything was alright dispite our previous complaint. We waited ages and ages and no one came to the table to either see what was wrong or to clear the food away. Eventually we had to flag down another member of management and tell him of the problem. He didnt grasp the situation very well He tried to say the food would have been freshly cooked again for us but we arged No. He said would we accept some desserts as an apology.
Even these wernt straight forward, we ordered 3 sundeas, 1 which was supposed to be raspberry and coconut, one supposed to be rhubarb and custard. The raspberry one had rhubard in it but most importantly, the rhubarb one had coconut in it !! just as well i didnt have a nut allergy, cause god knows how they would have coped in an emergancy.
This was just the most appalling visit i have ever had in a restaurant, and it has certainly put us off visiting Harvester again.
So much to them sending people free gift cards by email !!!!!
