The Harvester self-serve salad bar has returned following a customer outcry.

The restaurant chain had planned to make changes meaning customers would have to be served by a member of staff, instead of filling their own bowls.

The announcement caused a backlash with customers threatening to boycott the eaterie if they could no longer help themselves to the side dish..

However, from today, the self-serve salad is back with t he website confirming it will is "still free" and "still unlimited" with every meal.

David Hoyland, operations director at Harvester, told The Sun newspaper: "The salad bar is what we're famous for and all of us at Harvester know how much our guests have missed being able to serve themselves, so it gives us great joy to bring back this summer."

Their ‘salad promise’ is to keep the salad bar always fresh and fully stocked, with ingredients prepared every day, including all the toppings and dressings.
