We visited this restaurant in the evening, Only gammon and Beef left which was a shame. Vegetables a bit dried out and to be honest it didn't look great, i would like to think it was because we were a bit later than usual, however if you are paying full price until it closes then what is on offer should...

Surprise visit to Toby Cavery for a meal ended in a unpleasant experience . I like writing reviews of places I have visited . I feel we have a right to either complain or rave about the service you have received . On this occasion this was one of those hmmmm not a good voice of food or venue,maybe after... More

Have been several times, but the last time we went it was really exceptional. Lovely thin slices of roast beef and beautiful gammon with amazing roast potatoes. Also pork and turkey which my husband had. An excellent choice of vegetables to choose from, but on this occasion I only wanted a small meal so just had the cauliflower and a... More

Visited a number of times now and it has been great every time. We were worried that the food would be dry or not great quality but we needn't of worried. The food was excellent in portion size and quality, in fact the best roast we've had in any establishment. The staff were friendly and attentive - well done!

We were staying at the hotel next door for 3 nights so this became the go to place for most of our party (I only ate there 1 night). The weather was lovely whilst we were away so, using it as a pub, we had drinks outside most nights and that was great. The food was very adequate for the... More

The food quality was good and the bar staff and people serving food and cleaning up after were all great. Our waitress and the hostess were very rude. They made it out that because two of our party were vegetarians and we all wanted to eat outside any of the problems we encountered were our fault, not theirs. We have... More

Having moved to Banbury not to long ago, and with having a young family, we popped in for a quick lunch as toby's are known for being family friendly, food was to a good standard and well portioned, was not hungry when we left, and the staff were polite and helpful. We will be back soon.

Arrived about 930am enroute to a spa hotel for our wedding anniversary. Normal protocol is to wait by restaurant door and await service. One waitress visible serving customers and was behind bar. After 5 minutes she looked at us and asked in a quizzical manner "yes!?" She made no effort to move or make us feel welcome. I guessed at... More

A distinctly mediocre experience. Me and my partner visited today. The place was very busy and granted we did get a seat after a short wait but to be sat on a tiny table beside the till proved to be a very distracting experience. We went for our carvery meal but to our dismay we were given mere slivers of... More
