Afternoon Tea | York, North Yorkshire

Everything about this experience was first class. The service, the food and the attention to detail was superb. The only thing that could improve it would be to stop people walking in and staring at you whilst you are eating because they seemed to think it was part of the museum! More

We booked a table here solely because the location was convenient - but what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be! Delicious, beautifully presented, wonderfully-conceived food that you can tell a lot of thought and love went into. The staff were attentive without being overbearing and every dish was delicious and gorgeously executed. I plan to start coming here all the time. More

We were greeted with a warm welcome as soon as we arrived, and swiftly taken to our table. I had a ‘retro’ prawn cocktail (very nice with plenty of prawns) and my wife had the pate, with glorious home made chutney. Our mains were equally delicious - I had pork with tarragon &walnuts (yum!) whilst Nick had the duck confit and was not disappointed! Portion size was so generous we couldn’t manage a dessert. All washed down with a bottle of very quaffable house white wine. We heartily recommend this place! Our only slight issue is it’s very warm. I guess air con is difficult in an old building. Can’t wait to return More

We go to the Harvester every time we travel into the "big city" to enjoy an evening at the cinema in Clifton Moor. Eating out is part of the family treat. The Harvester never disappoints. The staff are stars - always smiling, friendly and helpful without exception - the food is simple/wholesome and the facility clean and cared for. It is a good experience and value for money. More

The food was excellent quality although they had run out of a special offer meal, but offered an alternative. Good value for money. I would highly recommend and wouldn’t hesitate to use again. More
