Allergies not taken seriously :(

Stopped for a quick meal and checked with member of staff for allergy info, then checked with the veg and was told was ok, then saw staff putting butter on veg and was told it did contain dairy! This shouldn't be happening - staff need to be trained to either give a correct info or ask someone who... read more

We have used this pub as a stop off on long distance car journeys. The food is good value and you get lots of it. The service is mixed though. On one occasion a staff member went out of his way to find my missing watch to which I was very grateful- thank you! On the other hand we have... More

There's something satisfying when you take a chance and find brilliant. Carvery's can be a bit pot luck but this is a gem. Great service, amazing food and great prices. £40 for two adults, two kids - including drinks and dessert. This is definitely on our next time we are travelling south food stop list... And only 5 minutes from... More

Popped in for a cheap feed as place is close to my brother's home. Not my first visit, but usual issue with queue to check table availability. Advised of 15-20 min wait so decided to book and have a beer while waiting for our buzzer to ring. Maybe this is a deliberate ploy to get punters to spend a bit... More

It's a shame. We used to look forward to Sunday lunch here, but today's experience was poor. We arrived early, thinking we could eat fresh food, but were then told to wait, as staff not ready. Carvery supposed to open at 12 noon. Eventually opened at 12.30, by which time the food was getting cold, and long line had developed.... More

First visit back since the voluntary closure of this Toby Carvery in August 2013 (google it) because I couldn't face it - but since then they've had a refit, new staff, and the food isn't bad - so thought I'd give Toby another chance. After this visit they don't get another. Seriously, go to Frankie and Benny's next door. I... More

Met here as about midway between us in the south and our friends from the midlands area, so very convenient positioned just off the M40. The meals were all very good and served by friendly staff. We will return.

I had arranged to meet 10 members of my family for a Sunday lunch at the pub, as this is what I thought Toby Carvery was good at. We congregated outside as it was a lovely day and bought drinks at the bar until all had arrived. I entered the pub at 1240 and went to the desk where 2... More
