A mixed age group; all of whom found a meal from the menu that they enjoyed. The service was attentive, pleasant and punctual throughout. The children were well-catered for.

Decided to go to this harvester as we had been given a free voucher after having a bad experience at the stevenage harvester and was definitely worth the drive. Staff were all friendly, service was good and food was yummy. The refill drinks machine wasn't that great tho, seems it would need more syrup added as drinks were tastless.

After visiting the Ancient Briton for a family meal on Saturday 22nd April, I feel I must make some observations, firstly we were waiting for what seemed an age before being shown to our seats, it wasn't that busy, the staff were friendly and helpful enough and we eventually landed at our table, I believe new cleaners may be needed...

8 of us visited for a 90th birthday. The staff were really helpful in giving us a table which was easy for older people to access and sit at. Our waiter, Liam, could not do enough for us. He impressed us that he did not write the order down and yet everything came out correctly. He was happy to take... More

A very surprising pleasant tasty lunch. Having the early bird menu consisting of Grilled chicken and scampi with chips was served hot and with plenty of accompaniments including the famous salad bar.

Great value. Our deal included a free voucher for Mother's Day Main Meal. They were rushed off their feet but service with some smile We were half an hour late getting to table having booked on line.

Oh dear. We wanted a reasonably priced, non Christmassy meal and popped in here. Clearly it was busy, and we had to wait for table for about 20 mins. That was fine, it was in the run up to Christmas.
