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

We eat at the Toby on a fairly regular basis because it is so good. Great atmosphere, very friendly staff and tasty food. If we had any problem with the Toby, we wouldn't go back. Good value. Highly recommended.

We eat here quite regularly and have even had two Christmas dinners here. The carver offers great value for money, I don't think you can beat it. However, the vegetarian daughter puts up with it but doesn't think it's that great. The member of the family who was most unimpressed was our three year old who had the pasta with... More

We've dined here about 6 times since it opened. The carvery is good value but it depends very much when you go as to the quality. Meat portions are a bit on the mean side, probably so that you'll buy up to a large portion. The veg can be superb on occasions but on others either under or over cooked... More

Its a shame, the selection and quantity was good, the meat cooked lovely, but the veggies were all rock hard, couldn't even cut my Brussels. All this being said, everyone else enjoyed their meal and it was really good value for money

one of our favourite places when we visit mother in law in carlisle, will always try and get a table when we are up that way, staff are superb, very polite, friendly and efficient, a cosy atmosphere and love the decor, only issue we had this time, was they really held back on the meat, have they been told to...

This just works... Traditional English food served in a cosy atmosphere at a great price! No wonder people return so regularly, it is almost impossible to find such value for money these days. As on all previous visits we left full to the gunnels! Well worth a visit... Best price is Monday thru Saturday as there is a premium for... More

Visited on 26th November as a treat and I was not disappointed. Good choice of meats at carvery and huge Yorkshire puddings. You could help yourself as many times as you wanted to potatoes, Yorkshires and veg. Puddings were yummy too and difficult to decide on which one to try out. Nothing was a problem. Service was excellent and as... More

We visited on 27th November, prior to going into Carlisle shopping. At least this time they were serving food, as last time they were cleaning the ovens and not open for breakfast. The breakfast was very good, well worth the money, and it's nice to see them serving mushrooms, i would say the scrambled egg, is not how i would... More

The food was fantastic, and meal seemed fairly priced. Drinks were a little expensive in comparison, and not obviously priced on the menu, so quickly bumped up the overall price of the meal.

We often go to eat at Toby restaurants when we visit family in Manchester. The Carlisle one is the nearest to us. So while shopping on Sunday afternoon we decided to treat ourselves and have a meal out. We chose the Toby carvery because they are usually good value for money. I was very disappointed with my meal. I chose... More
