Many British families love popping to Harvester on the weekend.
The restaurant chain serves a mean roast dinner – and many love dipping into its famous free salad bar too.
But have you ever wondered what employees think when you’re scoffing down your Sunday lunch?
Daily Star Online caught up with staff members to find out what the job is really like.
The insiders revealed handy money saving and menu hacks – and also lifted the lid on customers who get on their nerves.
Here are nine secrets Harvester workers want to tell customers, but can’t.
1. You can get your fill for less money
All customers get access to the salad bar – and you can go up as many times as you want.
Money saving diners have been known to order the cheapest item on the menu, before filling up on the leafy extras.
2. Yes, we get free food
Trust and believe we’ll be hitting up the salad bar everyday for lunch.
3. Leftovers are all ours too
When we’re not scoffing at work, we’re taking leftovers home with us.
Our fridges are packed full of Harvester food – from roast chicken to potatoes.
4. Swerve the salad bar sauces if you’re slimming
Take it from us, it’s all too easy to get a gut when you spend a lot of time at Harvester.
Even if you only eat from the salad bar, you can unwittingly guzzle hundreds of calories.
The sauces tend to be the biggest culprit, so many of us swerve the thousand island dressing if we’re trying to lose weight.
5. We love when new menu items are rolled out
While you may think we dread learning about new dishes that get put on the menu, it actually has its perks.
We get to try all the new food before you do – including Christmas treats and limited edition items.
6. Spare a thought for our feet
Our feet are in bits after a day at work
It’s not easy to stand up all day – and we often go home with sore soles.
Those who wear new shoes while they’re serving tables are also in for hell.
7. The staff discount is banging
When we’re not working at Harvester, you’ll probably find us dining there.
We get a 50% off food discount – but wish we could get money off booze too.
8. Stop dawdling when you’re getting your salad and drinks
When we’re carrying hot plates, it’s a nightmare when customers get in our way.
Kindly move when your server comes through – we’ll definitely thank you for it.
9. Don’t forget to tip
We know you have to get drinks and salad yourself, but we still take your orders and bring your food over.
