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.

Ok Breakfast

Visited at 9am as it's usually busy. Restaurant only had a couple of people in so found a seat easily. Food was self service but unfortunately due to not being busy had been sitting under heat lamps so Bacon was very crispy and fried eggs were hard in the middle. On the plus side they do serve a... read more

Visited here a couple of Saturdays ago and the service was dreadful. The waitress was a pleasant enough girl but, apart from dumping our drinks on the table, that was virtually the last we saw of her until we asked (someone else) for the bill. My wife is a vegetarian so needed to know the veggie choices and order from... More

Yeah great prices. Ok food. Nice venue. Very popular. But the state of the place. It's totally not cleaned to a decent standard. Sure portly people can't get that close to the floor to see. But every surface not dusted right... That's not on.

We visit this Toby carvery quite often, the food is very good, the price is very reasonable as during the week you can get two courses for £7.99! However it does get extremely busy at peak times between 5pm - 7pm, after that it quietens down nicely and you don't have to queue for very long. The only thing that... More

I and my family have been coming here for years. It is not 5 star luxury food but then you wouldn't expect that for the price you pay which is less than a tenner each and that includes pudding and a drink. They also regularly have discount coupons which you can find on line and that makes the meal even... More

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 not a great visit for a half empty restaurant!

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.
