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.

Good value

A good value for money meal. The food is of ok quality, £6.79 for a roast dinner with 4 different meats. Service was quick. Well worth the money... Not worth slaving over a hot stove for this price. Would recommend.

This was a spur f the moment visit - we were coming to Harlow anyway so went early to grab dinner. Very busy for a Monday night, however we only waited 10 minutes for a table which I felt was reasonable. The person managing the seating plan gave us a device which lit up when our table was ready.

Booked table on-line: 5 of us (all over 60yr) went lunchtime on Thursday 19th Aug . Paid £6.99 for main carvery and puddings. Great food and excellent service from the waitress with drinks and puddings.

Restaurant area is clean and tidy. Service is pretty good too. Roast beef and Yorkshire puddings are absolutely gorgeous, however the rest of the food is mediocre at best. The worrying thing for me was the state of the toilets, absolutely filthy and rundown, which makes me wonder what the state behind the scenes is like. I wouldn't eat here... More

Child portion and price agreed 😀 with no arguement and no embaressing fuss. The young lady serving the meats was polite, helpful and very cheerful. Very pleasant experience. Food was well prepared. Restaurant was busy but then it was a Sunday.

Like many carvery restaurants the Toby Carvery at Harlow majors on uncomplicated roasts and generous portion size. We've found it a good place to meet a friend for a mid-week catch up rather than a grand occasion. Friendly service and good value. Unprepossessing surroundings but convenient for parking.

"8 plates Russell" our server, was far too cheerful and over-attentive. It felt like a chore ordering our food and drinks. There was a huge, badly managed, queue for the carvery. When I did finally get to order, the meat was luke warm and potatoes under cooked. The only redeeming feature of this experience was the refillable drinks and the... More
