I go to harvesters quite often and its good to see them all being refurbished as before they were a little tired. The team have done fantastically with this one as the place looks great! Food was as expected - hot and prepared quickly- never have a problem here and cant understand how its number 39 of 51 restaurants in... More

I really like this place, the service is always good, the salad bar is always stocked and although it gets very busy on weekends, the staff know what they are doing. Plus whoever writes their TripAdvisor responses is doing a great job as they are bang on point shooting down these ridiculous complaints. Keep up the good work!

We have not been to The Oakmere in a couple of years as service was always bad and food not great. Well we were in the area so decided to give it a chance.........we have not been missing much. Although decor is lovely the service and food let this lovely place down. Our waitress was not the slightest bit interested... More

Recently refurbished and looking good. We went earlyish and had great food and service. The salad was fresh and the meat dishes were really tasty. Nothing fancy but good affordable food.

I have been a loyal customer of this Harvester for a very long time but in the last year the standards started dropping big time. I visited the restaurant in late January with my 3 kids and it was so poor that I emailed them to let them know, their response was that a major re-furb was happening in February... More

Oakmere house's new refurbishment is fantastic, staff were polite, food was fantastic, very accommodating to my gluten allergy. Waitress knew what meals I could eat without having to get the allergy book. Will definitely be back.
