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.

Toby Carvery! Toby Carvery is to food what Superman is to DC Comics! Toby Carvery is iconic;symbolistic and substantial. The quality of the food defines the experience,and you will not leave disappointed! I can recommend Toby Carvery for its gratifying;non pretentious and wholesome experience.

Their carveries have always been excellent value, and the refurbished Toby in Carlisle is no exception to their high standards. More seating has been added, but a magician must have done it, because there seems to be more space between tables than before. Great new design. The food, and let's face it, that is what we go to a Toby... More

This was our third choice eatery on our journey back home to Scotland. The place was very busy on an early Saturday evening( a good sign)...10 min wait for a table and then got stuck into our delicious meat and veg meal. Great value for money and friendly staff serving in all departments. Would pop in again if in the... More

We attended yesterday after going to the races and then visiting our mothers. We eventually arrived at 7.30pm. Firstly we stood around waiting for a member of staff to come up to us and offer us a table. Secondly there are 3 real ale pumps, but none were working. We were offered the 3 different sizes of plate but prior... More

Didn't get chance to try out the newly refurbished setting as we were ignored for most of our brief stay.. if they insist you wait to be seated by staff then get more staff.. we did as requested & waited to be seated.. Then others just walked in & sat at un set tables & when staff went to put... More

There was no wait for a table, very friendly considerate service, and it was clean, smart, and felt fresh. The condiments table etc. was clean and presentable. And to have your tap water served with ice and lemon makes all the difference, 'costs little, worth a lot'. These details make the difference. Very good value, does the job, and satisfies.
