As described below, a fair-sized Harvester constructed out of bits of old barn. The bar, which is to the left on the way in, is pleasant enough but the place is really only geared to diners. The Atlantic was off but the Doom Bar was in reasonable form.

This Harvester was opposite the hotel in which we were staying, so made it the obvious place for a bit of nosh on the Friday evening. The layout of the place is described by the previous reviewer - the only thing I would add is that it has a large large car park. The food was the same as every other Harvester.

I think the staff performance has gone up a few notches since ETA's visit. The young lady who served us in the restaurant was as efficient as one could expect in a Harvester. There were a couple of ales on; Sharp's Doom Bar and Atlantic. The Atlantic was brought to our table, and came just about in the undrinkable category. Returning it to the bar, the barman drew a small taster and then admitting he had no idea what it should taste like summoned a more experienced colleague to make the judgement. Said colleague agreed that it wasn't up to par, and replaced it with a pint of Doom Bar, which by Doom Bar standards was very good.

It's a Harvester so you wouldn't consider visiting if you're seeking a genuine pub experience, or even some good real ale, but it was handily placed opposite the Holiday Inn in which I was staying.

A Harvester built on what appear to be old barn foundations consisting of brick and oak. There are two main areas, a front bar with lots of bench seats and tables, and a table-and-chair style dining area at the back. The front bar is further sub-divided by a bank of gaming machines. There is lots of exposed oak on display to give it a rustic feel. The staff are highly inefficient and amateurish, the barman knowing very little about beer. The only thing resembling ale on was Speckled Hen which was much too cold, well and truly over-gassed and tasted like dishwater. The free wifi did not work. This was disappointing even by Harvester standards and I really don't see my going back.
