Rated 1 out of 5 by Nikkibee Very disappointing
I chose this highchair because I wanted durable wood and to avoid the plastic high chairs. I really wanted to love it. Undoubtedly it looks great, is easy to clean and folds well for storage. I have been using it for almost three months and sadly must write a negative review. I also bought the East Coast chair cushion and have been using it with the straps correctly fitted. My son is now 8.5 months old.
I have since used a number of other highchairs, either at friends' houses, holiday cottages, or cafes and found that this highchair is the worst option! First, the harness is unacceptably fiddly because it is attached at the seat base level and so trying to get it done up with an even slightly wriggly baby is a nightmare. My son invariably ends up sitting on the harness and I have to move it from under him. The only way I can get the harness on is to bend down in front of the tray and try to reach up from underneath while holding him to make sure he doesn't slide out. I need a third hand, and I don't have one. Secondly, the lack of a central leg post means that until the harness is done up, stopping him sliding out the bottom is very difficult. Thirdly, the tray does not detach or adjust. You fold up the whole tray mechanism, arms included. This would be fine except that the tray doesn't clear my son's head on the way back. He is not especially tall and I seriously doubt it would clear any baby's head. So you have to get the baby in the seat with the tray in place, which means squeezing them into a small space with a really fiddly harness trapped underneath them, while trying to stop them sliding out the bottom. Fourthly, if anything the straps are too long: the shoulder straps fall off his shoulders on the shortest setting while the plastic adjusters dig into his back.
At best it's uncomfortable and difficult to use, at worst it's dangerous. It's beautiful, but as a functioning highchair it is a really bad buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cassie77 A good quality chair
This is a sturdy high chair with a lovely, tactile tray. Smooth and durable it suits the rest of my furniture and I know it will last for years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kforte Clean, simple and practical!
This product is brilliant and reasonably priced. A durable and stable piece of apparatus that is easy to clean allowing your little one to make as much mess as they want without worrying about staining or mucking up upholstery etc. Can be folded away so can be hidden from view when not in use or transported around.
All in all a nice product. It's neutral/natural colouring and simple design allows it to adapt to it's surroundings without imposing itself or becoming an eyesore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Driftmonkey Attractive and hard wearing
We've used this high chair for over 5 years with 2 children. Agree with other comments that it's not brilliant with young babies but once they can sit well we found the straps adequate, certainly not any worse than other high chairs. Annoying that the straps can't be removed for cleaning but they can be easily sponge cleaned. Like the fact that the tray can be folded back so once a toddler, they can sit at the table. Hard wearing and easy to clean surfaces.

We are extremely disappointed with this purchase. Having bought all our nursery and baby things from john lewis we expected more,
The chair itself is a good style and build and we wanted wooden.
However our baby slips through and hangs in the poor fitting harness, even with an insert it is still not easy to feed in it and we have to keep pulling him up and sitting him straight to feed him, it is becoming a chore and he is not liking going in it any more. I wish we had chosen different :(

Very much what you'd expect of a wooden high chair. The design is good but you do need a bit of space. The wood is very attractive and so smooth that it wipes clean easily. My seven month old grandson did slide forward on the seat as I found using the entire harness a bit of a chore but a little seat cushion with Velcro tabs has solved that. Good value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Suse53 Very useful
I needed a high chair which would also allow a child to sit at the table as it gets older and this works perfectly and my grandson thinks it's wonderful. Previous reviews mentioned the harness being awkward but this has obviously been resolved because all worked beautifully. I like the wood rather than plastic.
