We should have realised when we walked in and found it less than a quarter full: everyone was eating elsewhere. It's quite a while since we've been to the Harvester. Too often it had been grubby, with grease ingrained into the table tops, and that turned us off. This time it was cleaned, and the staff were welcoming. The trouble... More

This was the first time I have been here and first impressions were good. The place is clean and the staff are friendly. The food no sooner ordered came out and tasted really good. Will come back again.

We use this Harvester every week and e we always have an excellent meal. The only issue is that it need refurbishment badly but the excellent staff more than make up for the decor.

Poor greeting on arrival, slow service, and poor timing of delivery of main course. Food cold by the time we finished our salad. When compared to our previous visit to the Gravesend Harvester - overall poor !!

This is by far the best harvester I have been to. I will always go here even if I am in Maidstone. The service is always consistantly good. The gentleman that shows you in and the girls that work there are lovely. The food always comes out quick and the salad bar is always fresh. I go every week. Great... More

Mini rolls were hard as stones. Salad bar was very poor indeed and there was a clear problem with quality too. Triple chicken ALL over cooked and dried out, with tepid chips. Haloumi was under cooked and not drained on paper so the plate was swimming in awful oil plus it was served with a BURNT jacket potato. We tried... More
