Description: Welcome to the Toby Carvery Watergate Toll. When it comes to roast dinners, we really know our stuff. Every day our chefs lay on a feast of tender, hand-carved meats with all the trimmings – including towering Yorkshire puds, golden roasties with all those lovely little crunchy bits, and plenty of freshly prepared veg, all crowned with proper gravy. So it's no wonder we're Bolton’s favourite carvery restaurant. Drop by and you'll find lots more on offer, including cooked breakfasts and tasty specials.

We had the Sunday Carvery this evening and it was absolutely vile. The staff were so rude and arrogant, the beef was not fit for consumption you could not cut or eat it, it was so fatty. The men carving the meats were dripping with sweat wiping their heads with their hands then handling plates. Disgusting! Avoid like the plague!!

Visited here as a party of 4 one evening at 7pm. Got our table and when we went for food were informed there was no turkey. The server suggested to avoid the beef as it was fatty and we ended up with a slice of ham and pork only. Yorkshire puddings that were dried brittle, vegetables dried hard and watery... More

We have visited various Toby Carvery's around the area and none can match the quality of the restaurant. The food is always hot and the personalities of the staff cannot be matched. Hope they keep up the good work.

Been going here for years but must say things have changed. Very sparing with the meat and although the atmosphere is good and the service is of high standard the food seems bit tasteless. No roasts ready ,although they didn't take long . Hope its not a sign of things to come

I handed it back to the chef/carver (who called every lady sweetheart!) and was told it was clean just scratched (luckily scratches don't hold germs!!) given another... More

Called in here yesterday around 5pm. There was no queue and so we were politely asked to find our own table, which suited us. Drinks order taken without any delay. The meat was nicely cooked, very tender, also a decent portion. All of the vegetables were good, especially the roast parsnips. So, another enjoyable meal at this Toby Carvery. By... More

We went to the Watergate Toll for a carvery meal at around 8.45 pm on a Saturday night. On entering the restaurant we wandered round looking for a member of staff to greet us & seat us but there was no one there. We chose our own table & then went to the pay point to see if we needed... More
