Have been here quite a few times in the week and never had any problems, so thought we'd try it on a Sunday, upon arriving was told it would be a 30 minute wait for a table, which is understandable, turned out to only be 20 minutes so that was a bonus. At least when it's busy you know the... More

I have only been to this place once before, several years ago, ended up not paying as the food was awful, so my expectation was low when told by my wife we were going. The area where the " chef" (well, he had a big white hat on, so I presume that's what he was) was covered in food debris,... More

I reviewed the Toby Carvery last year over their roast and gave it a positive score because i could see how far the place had gone. Their breakfast is just as good, if not better. Very cheap yet unlimited full English. How can you turn away at that. Refillable tea and coffee with all the condiments you need. Relaxed atmosphere... More

My son and I arrived just before Midday which is when the carvery actually opens. We weren't greeted at all and as we hadn't been before we headed into the restaurant to find a table. A surly older waitress asked us if she could help and in response to my question do we just sit anywhere? We were told NO... More

Arrived Saturday morning for breakfast to a very rude manager. Having been in the past for dinner with my partner weve had the brunt of her rudeness before. You won't be able to miss her if you decide to face the food, she has the face of a bulldog chewing a wasp. She has no people skills and needs to... More
