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.

Very good

We had a late breakfast here today. Plenty of well prepared food, although the eggs looked to have been there a few minutes. Excellent value for money, but the approach road is a bit rough. We would visit again.

Meat is usually rather dry. Service poor. All sauces were empty and waited 10 minutes to get them filled by which time my food was cold. Staff not always fully engaged about requests. However, for a cheap filling meal, it's good value. Don't go for a healthy meal but go if you are hungry.

We visited this pub as a party of four, just as a family get together on a Wednesday evening. We got there around 630pm and it seemed fairly busy. We waited five minutes for a greeter who eventually arrived and offered us as a table at the rear of the restaurant. I noticed as I walked through that there was... More

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
