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.

Tuesday Lunch Time 13:00pm Table for 8!

We arrived and a table for 8 was available - surprisingly! We come for some lunch but yet again extremely disappointed with the vegetables. Sweetcorn & courgettes as an option?! The wait for desserts and drink top ups was disappointing also! It's a shame as staff are always lovely! Yet again... read more

I know that a carvery is a carvery and not a Gastro pub so I wasn't expecting much, but unfortunately this place let down even my blow expectations! The meat was dry and the veg were soggy. That's all I have to say.

Just returned from having a breakfast at The Artichoke which is a Toby restaurant. Granted it is only £3.99 for a breakfast but that doesn't excuse the dirty plates that were put out by the buffet breakfast, or the overcooked dry breakfast that was in offer. The eggs were so hard not a runny yolk in sight & the bacon... More

Went in The Artichoke 21/07/15 and was impressed with the carvery food. Vegetables were all cooked how I like them, I had all 4 meats and they was very good. With a voucher, a meal and dessert only £6.50 (extra £1.50) if you want the big plate. Good value.

We were heading to an event in Brentwood. Allowing for the M25, we had arrived early and decided that we should eat. Sometimes you don't want anything too fancy, just good, honest grub. The Toby Carvery in Brentwood filled the bill. A good choice of four roasts and a large selection of vegetables - all perfectly acceptable. It may not... More

Visited on a Thursday night with my family. It was pretty busy and a bit too warm in there but food and service was fantastic. Main and desert for under £7 was a bargain. I would certainly come back but it would have to be midweek again as it can get so busy at peak times.

Reasonably priced food. Quality and quantity does vary. You can have as many vegetables as you like but the meat is purely down to the carver and the amount can vary a lot.

A group of us went for a birthday meal to this carvery. Some of those attending have been many times before and knew the waitress by name. Even though there was a group and we hadn't booked we were quickly shown to a table. It was a hot day but the restaurant benefitted from air conditioning and there was a... More

Description

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.
