17 things only die-hard Harvester fans will understand

This one goes out to everyone who knows the true elation of paying less than £10 for steak, chips and a sundae.

If you've just been to Harvester once or twice and think it's alright, this list is not for you.

This list is for the REAL Harvester fans: the people who know the true elation of paying less than £10 for steak, chips, and a sundae. The families that have got their Diet Pespi refill routine down. The ones whose relationship with the salad bar runs much deeper than just a drizzle of thousand island and a half-hearted crouton.

From the epic menu to the importance of a printable voucher, these are things that only die-hard Harvester fans will understand.

We'll see you at the bread roll basket, you bargain-hunting troopers.

You have no patience for people who complain about waiting for a table

Chicken with peppercorn sauce and a jacket potato? Whatever you want, madam.

They really should've asked your permission first.

But then you discover something even BETTER

When they introduced the premium sides it was a total game changer. Just 50p extra for those sweet potato fries?! You've got yourself a deal.

As soon as you're seated, it's straight up to the (free, unlimited) salad bar

There's a serious lack of green, but you make up for it in that delicious pasta, bacon bits and crispy onions.

Their potato salad is without doubt the best you've ever tasted

WHAT is in that magical sauce?!

Three words: Warm. Bread. Rolls.

You'll pounce as soon as the fresh ones are brought out. Eyes always on the prize (the prize being the wicker baskets).

By the time your meal arrives you're not even hungry, but you know you're gonna clear that plate regardless

Yep, even the pointless peas.

But you're still in awe of anyone who can finish a full mixed grill
