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 arrived at 9:10 on Sunday morning (10 mins after it opened) for a family breakfast - 4 adults 2 children. There were colouring pages for the children but no crayons. The baked beans container was empty and there were no hash browns or potatoe rostie available. I asked a staff member if they could get these for me and... More

We normally frequent another Toby Carvery but was passing this today after a 2 hour drive and was disappointed. Although we were seated quickly the wait at the carvery was excessive due to the carver just disappearing for sausages apparently ! He was gone for a good 10 mins and a long queue developed ! Then disappeared again for a... More

This is a good place to go if you fancy a roast dinner and can't be bothered cooking. It is reasonably priced and the food is good. There is a great selection of potatoes and veg. I also found that the meat is never dry- which is something i notice at a carvery (probably something to do with the lights).... More

We visited on the Sunday after Christmas as we were treating our family, who actually live in Farnworth to a meal before we departed back to our home in Cyprus. We have eaten here on many occasions and have previously been totally satisfied with both food and service. The Carvery at 1230 was not overly busy and five out of... More

I visited the place at about noon, and was surprised by how quickly it filled up. The staff appeared pleasant, and treated regular customers well. The Carvery was good if a little pricey, but having paid £1.50 for an extra large, I'm not sure what was additional to the normal. Finally, the lager was not available. Something to do with... More
