Description: Welcome to the Old Forge Toby Carvery. 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 Stevenage’s favourite carvery restaurant. Drop by and you'll find lots more on offer, including cooked breakfasts and tasty specials.

During a long business trip and fed up with local hotel choices (often expensive, or anything cheaper deep fried) I stumbled on this carvery. A superb selection of good quality perfectly cooked veggies AND a good selection on meats cooked just right. I have to say the service is first class, and the establishment is well worth a visit for... More

We regularly pop in for a cheap bit of dinner as and when we fancy it. We have always had a decent carvery from here and service has always been very good.

This is a chain carvery. Food is always plentiful so has to be value for your money. A lot of people take advantage of that. Staff always polite and friendly. We have booked the back room twice. Last time with 10 crazy rugby under 10's. They coped well as they were wild. Great breakfasts.

We visited at lunchtime. The service started well, and drinks arrived promptly. The carvery was easy to access, and it was great for my sister-in-law needed a low carbohydrate meal, which was easy to organise with the self service. The meat was tasty, but not huge portion(the Yorkshire puddings were massive). The vegetables were very varied, and changed quickly as... More

Brilliant service from one particular chef, Tarren mcqueeney, had a good chat and satisfied with the meats! This is were I regularly go, most of chefs hardly speak if at all, also they look very grumpy, also had one waitess who stuck us in the corner and totally ignored us the whole time.

Popped into the Toby Cavery in Stevenage. Nice place, although the tables were abit sticky. Food was not bad, usual Toby Cavery standard, albeit at a higher 30p price than the one in Watford I've also been to. Service was actually pretty good. All in all my visit was up to the standard I would expect. Good value and relaxed... More

The second time i was here (About 3 weeks ago) I went to get my food and the plates were disgusting, looked like they'd been washed in grease... More

My wife and I visited for lunch on 18.03.14 and had a perfect meal at very reasonable prices. Our waitress was extremely pleasant and looked after us as she did with other diners. The premises were very clean although a little TLC with decor but that not deter from our experience. Will definitely return

We have been here twice since my initial review and, I regret to say, that each time the experience was worse than the one before, resulting in last time feeling that that may well be the last. Went about 7pm on Sunday, advised that there was no turkey.. and it transpired that there was not much of anything else either.... More
