Didn't fancy cooking so decided to go out for a change, oh how I wished we had stayed at home. Whilst the meat was fine the vegetables looked like they had been cooked hours before. It was dried up and virtually impossible to cut. I had to pick up the Yorkshire pudding to eat as if like rubber. The potatoes... More

A normal Toby. Good standard food, short waiting time on a busy Sunday. Hot food and generous portions if wanted. Clean and comfortable. Excellent value for money as long as you don't want fancy food.

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
