We visited this restaurant at roughly 8pm on Thurs 16/7. When queueing for the meat there was no turkey, yorkshire puddings and sausages. When we asked the female member of staff carving the meat if there was more meat available she replied in a curt manner that this was all there was. The beef and pork on the serving board... More

We ate the all you can eat breakfast. The bacon and sausages were burnt, the scrambled egg had the consistency of set custard. The beans and tomatoes were cold. I suppose its what you expect for £3.99. However the place was clean, the staff were friendly and polite. Not sure I'd have the breakfast again would possible try the roast... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful however, the food left a lot to be desired. When you're only paying £20 per couple, I'm not sure if much else can be expected. The meat we had was acceptable, but the roast potatoes were burnt beyond recognition We won't be visiting again

We stayed at the Travelodge next door, so this was an ideal place to go after a very long journey. We each had the carvery and ate everything on our plates. Everything in the food trays was fresh and quickly replenished on the evening we were there. There weren't many staff on; but boy did they work hard. I think... More

You either like a Toby roast or you don't. No great surprises, nice food, good value. I've knocked a star off because they clearly didn't have enough staff on this Saturday evening, a big queue at the bar and the waitresses were rushing around so much they couldn't give much service. Ok though

Went for meal here at 6pm, the vegetables looked like they were left over from lunch time, dried up and not a good impression, same for the mash potato. Meat was ok. Had to go and find a waitress to clear our table and order dessert, considering they weren't busy this is not acceptable. Also no ice for the drinks!!!... More

Went for breakfast today 26th April, what a dissapointment, waited ages in the queue and when we got to the front virtually everything had gone only to be told they wasn't going to be topping the bins up because it was 10.30. Really hacked off that the coffee pots were removed at 10.50 even tho breakfast was served till 11.00.... More

Great value food. Lovely roast all u can eat except on meats which you only get one serving of. Apart from that you can go up and get more and more. Yorkshire puddings are my favourite they are massive. Can't go wrong for the price.
