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.

Nice food, obviously it is all you can eat so you get plenty. Nothing special but it never disappoints and I would recommend it for a quick meal.

Only criticism was the Yorkshire... More

Food was well cooked and there was plenty of it but the whole thing seemed a bit rushed and I felt like I was back at school queuing for my lunch.

I have eaten here several times since 2008. The meat is always cooked to perfection, but some of the veg is a tad crunchy, which I understand is how the chefs are taught at catering college these days. My personal preference is for them to be softer, I've seen a lot of veg wasted over the years for the want... More

First time for this Toby carvery.Been to others. Same as all the rest. Nice place, good bar area good eating area with loads of different size tables. Service was very good, explained all about the carvery and portions, prices etc. Food as usual, excellent, although a little on the cool side, could have been hotter, meat carved off the joint,...

On our second visit to Toby Carlisle we chose the cavery option. We were provided with half the carvery meat than our first visit which was slightly disappointing however a very good selection of vegetables and three of the huge yorkshire puddings soon made up for it! Overall 3xcarvery & 3xlimitless cola drinks came to £27 which represents very good... More
