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.

Not so good this time round.

Recently dined here with the boyfriend and his family, overall I've dined here three times now. The first time the food was lovely, exactly what you would expect at a carvery, there was plenty of meat and veg and it was piping not. The last two times I've dined here it seems that the standard of... read more

Toby Carvery has always been my main place to visit for dinner when dining out with the family, afterall how can anyone turn down a roast dinner? The last few times we've visited including today the service has started degrading over the months. The times we've been they would appear to have sold out of the majority of the meat... More

We booked a table for 9 people and on arrival we were seated at a table set to 8 so had to add another place setting. We then went to get the food from the carvery and they had run out of mashed potatoes and the guy who was sorting out the vegetables just turned round and said that it... More

Went for breakfast on sunday 10th march at 9.15am. On ordering we were offered juice for £1. But no orange juice only apple or cranberry. Went to get breakfast and stood waiting for 10 mins for mushrooms sausages and eggs. Disappointed that there were no breakfast yorkshires despite being widely advertised in the pub and online. Undecided whether we will... More

Terrible Service from kitchen had to wait at least 10 mins for eggs & mushrooms to arrive on the pass. Went for Breakfast Yorkshire puds which they didn't have contrary to a big sign on the wall saying try them. By the time I got my breakfast my partner had finished hers almost. No problem with table staff very smart... More

oh where do we beginning! Firstly the table we had booked for nine people was only set for eight and another chair had to be plonked onto the end of a small square table so it was very cramped up. We had never been before so was unsure where to go and had to ask the person carving the meat... More

My wife and I have just returned from having our tea here. We have had quite a few carverys over the years, and I have to be honest, this was the nicest one we have had in a while. £6.99 seemed a bit dear for a standard carvery, but the selection of four meats, and the overall quality, made the...
