I know it's a harvester.. but it's pretty rubbish. We came for breakfast at 11ish and ordered the all you can eat menu after we ate they told us that they were then packing it up so.... we didn't get all you can eat. Couldn't even get another cup of tea.

Anneka S, we regret that you had a negative experience with us, but are glad you brought this to our attention. We strive to have a smooth changeover as we finish serving breakfast at 11.30 and start serving lunch at 11.30. So unfortunately we have to bring everything in promptly to enable the salad bar to be set up for... More

Teresa our waitress was friendly smiley and so helpful. ....I think a mother of six herself she understood how difficult it is to please my God children who were with us. She helped us choose and we all ate a lovely meal. The place had a good salad bar. We were served quickly and efficiently

Generally good for a chain restaraunt. We had a problem with no lettuce on the salad bar and cold chips with one meal. Both problems were rectified straight away

I had a birthday breakfast here with family. You order the cooked breakfast and can order as much as you want, also the ask you later if you would like to order more. You can also help yourself to continental breakfast all for £7.49 in teas, coffee and fruit juice.

We went in for a meal before going to see a film. There is a great choice of meals, something for everyone. Not the most amazing food in the world you get what you pay for and this is a chain restaurant. Perfect to take kids too and for a quick and easy lunch! Staff were polite and attentive!

Hello, We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us. Just to put your mind at rest, our ribs are not microwaved, they are slow cooked and then finished on our grill. We have passed your feedback on to the team and will make improvements where necessary. More

Absolutely adored the Vegetarian tagine which I was told is made Vegan by the simple swap of sour cream for guacamole. Service was super-friendly and accommodating and the decor was great, they've changed a LOT from being a greasy steak-house where all you got was a slab of meat and some fries to a real range of gorgeous and fresh...

Came back from a trip from London and was looking for a quickish meal before we went home. Couldn't fault the food was decent value for money. Only couple of issues were they advertised a chicken triple but could only provide two types of chicken so not ideal. Service was also slightly erratic but the place was busy so can't... More
