Popped in a few times over the last few months and had no probs. Landlord/landlady and the locals seem friendly. Seems to have settled in and attracts an older local crowd.

What a shambles. Will never go back. This is the sort of bar you go to until your Giro runs out. If you don't get hammered on the beer, you will when you leave once its dark.

god awful but popular with the underclasses, just looking/walking past it is bad enough, cant see why anyone with sense would visit. 0/10.

Harvest Home? More commonly known to locals as the Harvest Hole! Several broken windows, teenagers sitting outside on the wall which has been re-inforced with metal owing to it being damaged so many times.

Doesn't look particularly inviting a place to go drinking in!

What can one say......The Harvest Home. Built in the 50's to serve a London Overspill estate of Tithe Farm and Hillbrough. There are hundreds of these pubs across the country. Opposite a parade of shops, the external fabric gives the impression of nothing but another estate pub. Decorations that are put up on the pub to celebrate various football events are still displayed many months after the final whistle is blown. The bedraggled Cross of St George flag being displayed from an upstairs window gives this pub the impression that it is run by a very patriotic landlord. My last visit to the pub was a few years ago now. A dark and dinghy saloon bar, complete with ripped crimson draylong seats, whilst the juke box played a range of late 70's and 80's classics, such as the Police and Rolling Stones, gave this pub the feeling that it had been more successful in that era.
The public bar, with it's tiled floor and pool table, certainly resembled a spit and sawdust bar. The toilets were smelly and were painted with that purple paint which seemed to be so popular in the 80's.The typical customers being legendry. During the day a few die hard’s along with the usual pissed woman, who by 2 o’clock in the afternoon had managed to upset every man and caused several arguments. This was these people’s lives. Rough and ready. If you were a stranger visiting the pub, be prepared to starred at. If you could stay, feeling uncomfortable, for any period of time, it would not be long before one of the local roughs would accuse you of some thing and attempt to start a fight. Small mindedness, I guess with the customers continues, but I cant speak about the pub itself, as it stands today. There are occasional disco nights and the usual big screen football matches.
Maybe if they were giving free beer away, I maybe tempted in, but my first impressions were very lasting ones. Much of Houghton Regis pub's have very little to offer, so for good beer, food and company, you will be having to travel a little further out of the BIG HR.

Dont be fooled by the typical 60's built estate pub look. Locals local, friendly, down to earth boozer with a caring landlord.
