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.

Excellent carvery dinner!

Visited with my girlfriend on a Sunday evening. Had a 30 minute wait for a table, so not too bad wait. The dinner was lovely - we had beef, turkey and gammon. The meat was great, the Yorkshire Pud huge and very crispy roast potatoes. The veg is also varied and good quality. We finished it off... read more

Stayed in the Travelodge next door this weekend so it was inevitable we would end up in here at some point! Nice decor. Good selection on menu. Great selection of beers and drinks. Staff were efficient and fun. We only had drinks and a Honeycomb Sundae so can't really comment on food. Place was nice and clean and the loos... More

Went here for lunch. No waiting on a Monday lunchtime. Quick attentive waitress. One had salmon and salad and two had carvery. Excellent meat and vegetables just right. Puddings good as usual.

This is my first ever 1* review - I prefer to give positive reviews but I've had to give it a week or so to cool down enough to write this review! I've been to other Tobys before and they were fine, but not this one I'm afraid. From the minute I walked in I was made to feel like... More

This carvery is my absolute fave! The meat is always so tender, you can choose whatever you want to have (a bit of everything if you can't choose) and you can even go big with an XXL plate (if you're brave!!) which gives you an extra Yorkshire pud and a couple of chipolatas. The gammon and beef are by far... More

It was a nice place to come after travelling all day. The staff were very attentive apart from one who couldn't muster a smile! The food was average and felt like it was taken from a microwave. My favourite part was the roasties they were fantastic and so was the turkey, very moist, the gravy was also very good, had... More

There is nowhere better than a Toby Carvery for value for money. Living in France, we are used to plates of food that are all presentation and no substance. Toby Carveries all over the country have the same quality of food. Breakfast is amazing value.

Went here for a quick bite to eat after a long day at work. We were seated quickly and out drink orders were taken by a very friendly waitress who was very busy but seem to be in control. We went up for the carvery which was as usual piping hot with a good variety. We finished our meal with... More

Been to several Toby's before and I always get a slow service. Not the case in Harlow - 5 starts. Both the chef and the waitress were fast and very kind. The meal was ok as usual for a cheap price.
