Harvester fans threaten to boycott restaurant as salad bar rule is axed

06/22/2022

Harvester has revealed it will be removing its famous self-service salad bar.

The restaurant will still offer the fresh food with meals but customers won't be allowed to load up the bowls themselves.

Instead diners will have to wait in a queue to be served by a member of staff.

And some long-standing favourites, like bacon bits, also appear to be phased out by the chain, reports the Sun.

Customer Naomi Johnston, 41, said: "We've always loved going to Harvester as a family, but this made us think again.

"The salad bar is one of the best parts.

"I don't like having to point and ask for my scoops of coleslaw, sweetcorn and thousand island sauce."

She said when her family complained they were told it was a company-wide measure caused by rising costs.

Meanwhile other Harvester fans took to social media to complain about the changes.

One online user said: "I'm boycotting Harvester until I can serve my own salad.

"Far too much for my anxiety having to ask someone to do it for me!"

Another claimed the best thing about Harvester has been ruined.

The popular chain has offered the "nation's favourite salad bar" for nearly 40 years.

It initially removed its self-service salad tongs due to coronavirus.

Harvester said: "We're currently researching how to give our guests the best version of the unlimited salad bar in 2022 and beyond.

"We're looking at consumer feedback and hope to update Harvester's salad bar fans with any changes in the coming weeks."
