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 Brentwood's favourite carvery restaurant.

My husband and I took my mother out for Sunday lunch to The Artichoke at Brentwood, which is a Toby Carvery. The staff were very helpful, we were told there would be 20/30 minutes for a table and given a block of plastic, which apparently would `bleep' when the table was ready! It did just that. We were then shown... More

I have been to many carvery places and other Toby's but this is far the best one. The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Can't wait until my next visit.

I absolutely love the food here. Been here many times and never been disappointed. The plate is usually piled high and its all at a very reasonable price. Making me hungry just thinking about it!

Eat all you can breakfast £3.99 with unlimited tea and coffee for £1.50! I think that's a great price! Good selection of breakfast food like bacon hash, sausages, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, bread jams, etc. Everything is served hot, buffet style. Very filling!

A group of us spread about the county have met at the Toby Carvery – still known as 'The Artichoke' to some of us – for lunch at fairly regular for several years. It is centrally located, has a large car park and has always served us well. Today, the restaurant lost a lot of our goodwill. The car park... More

I have recently had the breakfast for £3.99 which is a buffet style all you can eat. Great value but teas and coffees a little too pricey.

All the meat is very tasty and tender. Fresh joints appear regularly. Enormous choice of veggies - great for those people who are fussy and only like certain ones. Delicious roast potatoes, always cooked very well. The gravy is very nice too - not too thin. We went over Christmas but felt £1.50 for one sausage in blanket was far... More
