'Refurb' seems to be my favourite word on here. Anyway, nicely done up and pleasant staff. Food was very nice, only downside was that the venue was absolutely freezing.

We've eaten at the 5 Bells Harvester a few times now and have always been impressed, not only with the building itself but the quality of the food and portion sizes. We visited there last night after spending a horrendous journey back from North Wales as neither of us wanted to cook when we got home. It was practically deserted... More

What a disappointment, nothing like previous visits, sold out of Merlot, lack lustre salad cart , tried three lots of salt and pepper from adjacent tables, all empty. my meal would have been more enjoyable served on a plate and not on a bent Paella pan that needed a serviette underneath to keep on the table. Lack of any pasta... More
