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.

It's ok.

Food is what it says, a carvery. You can get other food but not many healthy options on offer. The restaurant gets very busy so service can be a bit chaotic and you find yourself doing a lot of waiting either to be served or to pay. The food is ok and a lot of people seem to like going... read more

Best carvery around. Found the beef is so tender here. Only sad thing is the waiting time on a sunday is over hour wait. Shame there is no booking, so do not intend to go sundays now as the kids get irritable waiting.

The Toby Carvery have a lot to say about their roast potatoes. They're awful, hard barely warm and certainly not ruffled. Not sure if the Harlow outlet even provides them although they're advertised.

I've been to this Toby Carvery several times and have walked away more than satisfied with the service, food and value for money provided by the restaurant. I'd recommend this restaurant to couples, families and friends as I've visited when in all three categories. Please note that my experiences happened whilst in the restaurant during the off peak hours. I... More

Went there spare of the min with my family. Walked in and up to the bar where 2 members of staff stood talking, 1 glanced over blankly not even acknowledging our existence. We waited, ignored for 5mins and left. Joke of a restaurant.

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
