Welcome to the Toby Carvery Harlow. 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 Essex’s favourite carvery restaurant. Drop by and you'll find lots more on offer, including cooked breakfasts and tasty specials.

Still the best Value!

Nice comfortable decor and seating. Always busy but even on this Sunday only had to wait about ten minutes for a table. Meat was excellent, vegetable selection is good and tasty. Wine by the glass is very reasonably priced. You cannot beat this place for value and quality.

Range of choice of vegetables, a lot of meat if u pay a pound fifty extra. Very often, busy restaurant, but can manage to have great atmosphere. Nicely clean restaurant, friendly staff, really good carvery place.

Breakfast, great value, very tasty. Carvery meal, ruined by the screaming kids running riot whilst their Adidas clad parents poke at their food with a fork whilst on their smart phone with the other hand. Food was ok, waiting staff were really excellent whilst I was there. Friendly and attentive

Maybe they didn't have enough staff but nobody the person who greeted us came from the bar. Not sure if this person was a bartender. But we were given a table and our drinks order was taken by the same person. There was no line for the Carvery. The Yorkshire puddings wa lovely but some of the side dishes were... More

While visiting family, we decided to go for a carvery, as we all do enjoy a good carvery :) On entering, we were given a not particularly warm welcome and after a 10 wait for a table, we were shown through. The queue for the carvery never seemed to go below about a dozen people, but given that the place... More

Toby seems to be very hit and miss lately. Staff were slow, it was busy but there was enough staff there. We were shown to our table and waited for the waitress to ask if we wanted to drinks,and waited some more nobody came so we helped ourselves to the carvery. Food was nice that was the only saving grace.... More
