The new-look eaterie is due to open at the beginning of June following an extensive refurbishment – and all the 25 staff who were employed at the Harvester are being kept on by owners Mitchells and Butlers, while the 20 new posts are created.

The new posts will include chefs, waiting team and bartenders and recruitment days are being held locally later this week.
