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.

Been a few times for the Sunday Carvery. I live in hopes that it will improve as time goes on but it has not. Although there are a selection of meats, the portions are extremely small, maybe sufficient for a child. Obviously the idea is for the Customer to fill up on the giant Yorkshire Puds and the veg, which... More

I have eaten here many times and it is very much hit and miss. Sometimes it is lovely and sometimes it is bland, veg over/under cooked and there was a time there was no Yorkshire puddings but everyone was still expected to pay full price, a disvount would have been appreciated as yorkshire puddings are a main part of a...

All you can eat breakfast for just £3.99 is definitely value for money but the quality let it down. Maybe because we visited towards end of service but a lot of the items had dried up or were overcooked and butter was melted in the packs. Service was not as good as it is for the cavery and looked understaffed... More

After sleeping in the car all night en route to Scotland we were on the lookout for a nicer breakfast & surroundings than Motorway cafes. We went off the motorway in search of cheaper petrol, found Tesco and spotted the board outside Toby Carvery virtually next door advertising a very reasonable priced cooked breakfast. We went in at 8.am ish,... More

What a shame, we've been coming here since it first opened, a few years ago, when the food and the service were fantastic, really excellent, BUT, for the last three visits, over three months, it really seems to have got rather poor, in both the service and more especially the food. To my mind, Toby Carverys are all about excellently... More

Is this a business or a family home? On a number of occasions visiting here there have been staff kids running around doing what they want, I have seen then running behind the bar helping themselves to crisps and drinks, the bar staff are incapable of stopping them. They run around to find staff that are working disturbing other peoples... More

I ate here with my family although you can help yourself (except the meats) I found it very ordinary. The chef asks which meats you would like and gives you 3 very small cuts of either pork, beef or something else. Then you fill your your plate with what can only be described as soggy flavourless vegetables. Even tho its... More

This is a standard carvery but it's very nice. The staff are really friendly and the food is good. Rather too much of it, though! Service is very quick. There are some very quirky photos and pictures on the walls-worth a look.

Fantastic value for money. Service is great to.. Have a fussy daughter who wanted plain ice cream but was served it with a chocolate flake and sprinkles, no complaints from the staff when asked to change.
