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.

Very busy but we enjoyed the food

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... read 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

Staying in the area for just one night. Needed quick and simple meal Saturday evening. Had used other Toby carveries before so knew what to expect. Staff were friendly and efficient. Meal was typical roast carvery. Adequate cuts of meat. Pork especially tasty .

Fantastic value for money. Great tasting food. Good choice of joints of meat and a wide selection of vegetables. The dessert I had was unimpressive. Rolo sundae. My wife enjoyed her Apple crumble though. London pride ale on tap. The decor is a let down. It`s not a dining experience. just good value food.

Had a 10 minute wait which was good for a Sunday. However service could've been more attentive as both me and my partner were over halfway through our main before the drinks were brought to the table. (Having been forgotten by the waitress). The food was nice but could've carved more meat than the measly portion we were served. Yorkshires... More

It's nice atmosphere for family roast Dinner, very good value. The breakfast is so much more choice since it's open for breakfast last year, and it's very good value for money as well.

Have been to the Carvery many times as the food is very good, Service is excellent and staff always pleasant and friendly. The prices are extremely good, hence value for money. I would recommend it to anybody.
