My Harvester addiction...

I seem to be slightly addicted to eating at the Harvester. I wrote a restaurant review on the Harvester back in June 2013, and I must have been about twenty times since then. That is not an exaggeration.

We had yet another busy weekend last weekend... I hope our lives are a bit calmer after we get married! We had lots of wedding matters to sort out and were also busy with the new house, so we thought we'd reward ourselves on Saturday afternoon with a meal at the Harvester. After staring at the menu for much longer than was necessary, we both decided to choose items from their £9.99 meal deal. Unlimited salad, main meal (with sauce and side), refillable drink and dessert. Who on earth would say no to that?

I filled my salad bowl with pasta, pineapple, onions, crispy onion and bacon bits, potato salad, coleslaw, carrots, thousand island dressing, a white bread roll... don't judge me, I hadn't eaten for six hours!

I chose the gourmet bacon and cheese burger for my main course, with chips and chilli, ginger and spring onion sauce. I have never ever had a bad burger in the Harvester and I was absolutely ravenous, so I thought it was an apt choice. Chilli, ginger and spring onion sauce might seem like a strange choice to accompany a burger, but it's just so good. It's also a good sauce to dip your chips into... please take my word for it, you won't regret it.

It's safe to say that I was very full after polishing off my massive burger and chips, but I still had to fit in my dessert. I say that as if it was a chore... it definitely wasn't. You can have a Sundae Best with the £9.99 meal deal, or you can pay £1 extra for one of the gigantic sundaes. I decided to be greedy and go for the Chocolate Supreme Sundae with Munchies. I'd already blown my calorie allowance for the day so I thought I might as well go all out! It's not as if I need to stay slim for a wedding dress or anything... ahem. 

This massive sundae was made up of whipped cream, ice cream, warm chocolate fudge brownie, Munchies, crushed Munchie pieces, Belgian chocolate sauce, fudge pieces and a wafer. The chocolate fudge brownie was very rich so I couldn't quite finish it off, but that wasn't for want of trying! Possibly the best sundae I've ever had at the Harvester, closely followed by the Lemon Blizzard. 

Needless to say, I didn't eat another thing for the rest of the day. Yet another successful visit to the Harvester!

Have you been to the Harvester lately? What's your favourite meal there?


  1. I haven't been lately as there aren't many near me but it's such good value for money!
