Nothing special

Called in late evening midweek on way to Gatwick airport. Our first ever visit to a Toby and it will be our last. The piece of equipment used to make the yorkshire puds was out of order!!!! Turkey was fine but that was best part. Everything unappetising. My husband had 4 meats and given a... read more

The food was good and the service was okay. Most of the vegetables on the carvery looked very sad though, especially the broccoli! Overall it was good value for money. The waitresses were friendly however it was a bit odd that they didn't let us sit outside for the meal and the waitress had to ask her manager if it... More

I visited today and was extremely disappointed to learn that I was unable to order a pudding to sit outside in the garden, despite being able to do so before. Recently I was served by a young friendly customer focused team who said that if I wanted to spend money, they were happy to take it off me. Unfortunately today... More

Food was traditional Carvery, gammon, beef etc. Meat was tough and veg had been under the lights too long. But you kind of expect that. What really annoyed me was the cleanliness of the toilets, the gents was disgusting and my wife tells me the ladies was the same. I would be surprised if any member of staff had checked... More

Staff have a great hart, but do not have enough training. New bar staff did not know what to do, the Chap carving was lovely but had been told off 8 times for cutting the meat too thick ! - There is no attention to detail, no Yorkshire puds, we were told they had forgotten to order them !

Rather than eat at the bowling where we had been we decided, perhaps unwisely, to visit the Toby Carvery. It was as though we entered a TV comedy sketch. On arrival we were told that the didn't use cards. When I replied "What credit cards?" the answer was no they did not give you a card ticket for your meal.... More

Very Disappointing! Is only the start of it! Went for a long awaited Family Brunch Yesterday and came away still hungry! Told that some of the staff had left and they were left with not so great staff to train new staff, big problem where shall I start.
