Well - what a lovely place! The old "Harvester" is no more and the pub has been fully refurbished and re-designed internally by the new owners. It re-opened on the 10/12/09.
More of a modern country Inn style now with a menu to match. Sharing plates, salads, pasta, spit roast chicken plus steaks too. Prices from £1.95 for side dishes to £19.95 for a fillet steak (bit pricey for me!).
Will certainly pop in again.
We went here for lunch on a Sunday, but we were disappointed for a number of reasons:
a) On arrival, the protocol for being seated wasn't obvious. It seems there isn't one. We waited around for several minutes until we were seen to.
b) They had no record of our booking. Luckily they had a free table.
c) We were seated, but although it was obvious we had a baby with us I still had to ask for a high chair.
d) The waitress who seated us didn't offer to take drinks orders.
e) Fifteen minutes later she came back to take our orders. I had to prompt her to ask us whether we would like some drinks.
f) Another twenty minutes passed. I could see our drinks order waiting on the bar. It had been there for ten minutes. I had to ask another waitress to go and fetch it.
g) We finally got our food an hour after arriving. My burger was quite average, unlike the price (£12). It was also well done, despite me asking for medium. The chips (or "frites", according to the menu) were standard average pub chips.
h) We were given two dessert menus. One was for the Sunday roast, the other for the standard menu. The pudding I wanted was on both; on the Sunday roast menu it was £3 and on the other menu was £5.45. I was charged £5.45. The difference was taken away again when I pointed out that you can't charge almost double simply because an item is printed on a different piece of paper.
I get the feeling that somebody has put a lot of money into this place, but they've ignored the basics, i.e. good, honest food and well trained staff. The chaos between the kitchen and front of house was obvious. All style and little substance, as another reviewer said.
During our time there we noticed two other people making complaints. We didn't leave a tip and we won't be going back.
A very lively pub restaurant on the edge of Wolverhampton, we visited it for the first time this evening. The first things that struck us were the two enormous bouncers and the dense crowd milling around the bar. Having found our table, the service was swift and efficient and drinks were served and orders sought.
Rustic bread, balsamic vinegar and oil with roast garlic and olives for starters all round was fine. The mains included burger (average) and chips (undercooked), and lambs liver and mash (like a scene out of "Silent Witness" said one of my companions).
The low ceiling ensured that the place seemed lively, but also made it very noisy. The bill for four, including three bottles of wine, a spritzer and two Peronis - starters and mains only - totalled £132. I won't be rushing back - I may be too old...!
Staff work very hard, decor is beautiful. Food is really yummy- especially the Steak Night steaks- Cote du Beouf and T-Bones. Really excellent.
Yes it gets busy. Yes its quite loud and bustly-- but its the best place for miles.
