Return visit. Even more of a delight. Service excellent as was attention to detail. Little things i.e. a photo of the special oven and showing us how it works, checking out which musicician was playing a particular track.
The meal was outstanding Definitely michelin star quality without the hefty price tag. Tastes were sublime. Highly recommend and will be back.

I really enjoyed our lunch yesterday. I ordered the Freedom Pork Ribeye with beans and spring onion on Polenta. The meal was well presented and the Pork was tender. A beautiful meal. The only small remark I had was the amount of the bean and spring onion on top of the polenta. The bean was cut into 4 pieces and a very thin small charred green onio. Being February, there are plentiful vegetables at this time of the year and wondered why there was minimal bean and spring onion and thought even 2-3 beans and small spring onion would have been sufficient without being too frugal.
Perhaps a side of vegetable would have been an option too.
Tobby the chef popped out and chatted to us at the table and was charming to talk with and shared the experiences of Covid19, the changes and the history of The Convent. A lovely day out to be on such a beautiful property. Thankyou for opening up to the people of Blenheim to be with family and friends.
I will definately come back.

A lovely setting for an outstanding meal! The staff were delightful and the attention to dietary restrictions was much appreciated. My wife has some food allergies and had no problems with the carefully thought out menu. One of our most enjoyable dining experiences in ages. Looking forward to a return visit!

My partner and I had our 1st anniversary dinner at Harvest and we really enjoyed it. The entrance needs work as it doesn't flow very well, and the steak wasn't as tender as we thought it would be. Setting is amazing, its just a shame that the carpark is not next to the restaurant. Great staff though!

Dear 281heatherg

Thank you for dining with us and we hope that your 1st anniversary was memorable

Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the walk from the carpark to the restaurant as majority of our guests say that the ability to walk through the gardens is a highlight on arrival and departure and by locating the car park (approx 4 min walk) away it has ensured that the gardens remain the focus when dining rather than looking out to a carpark.

In future you can always be dropped at the entrance and then one person can then park the car.

Thanks for dining with us and hope to see you again

From the moment you are greeted in the glorious grounds to the friendly wave good bye you are made to feel like the most special guests !
The food does not disappoint. We came to experience the full menu , each morsel a taste sensation.
We had recently been disappointed with the cuisine on offer in Blenheim in this Covid time. A couple of trips out to wineries that had previously put on excellent food and wine were nothing short of a disaster since the overseas tourists had stopped visiting so to find this gem on Rapaura rd was a miracle. You would be forgiven for feeling the Covid world didn’t exist and you had walked into a memorable world class experience. Thank you Harvest for whisking us away for a few heavenly hours!

Dear Freefletch

Isnt it great to get away from the COVID world, where you can pretend that it doesnt exist, even if it is for just a short time. Certainly nice to let yourself exhale and just enjoy the moment and our gardens do let you do that.

Glad that you found us and that that we could help you relax and enjoy your visit to magical Marlborough.

Hope to see you back and thanks for taking the time to review
