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.

A few of us completed in the Blenheim triathlon for charity. We stopped by here on the way home as we had a long day full of activity and wanted to refuel. I would say for a carvery on Sunday The waiting time wasn't too long. The food was very tasty. I think that they could have improved their service... More

The only good thing about Toby Brentwood is the amount of meat they give you. The atmosphere is very old school and not very clean. The service is slow and always seems to not have enough staff.. If you want better service and a better atmosphere (More like a restaurant) I would aim to go to Basildon retail park Toby.

This carvery is such good value £6.99 and better still with a voucher you get 2 courses for £6.50. A choice of 4 different joints and a good selection of vegetables. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the staff are friendly and helpful. Children are welcome. Well worth a visit .

We went here on bank holiday monday, at 7.15pm, and was told because they had a "rush on", there was no meat left, and there would be at least a TWO hour wait. Not acceptable for a restaurant.

This is the restaurant we go to when we just fancy a meal out, when we go out with family or when I organise a meal out for a group of friends. The staff are always pleasant, the service is is nicely paced and you are never rushed. The carvery is fantastic value and there are always deals. The carved... More

Beat this for parsimony - I fancied the gammon (which was actually very tasty) and when the "chef" had finished carving what must be a very carefully metered our ration I asked if I could also have some turkey he proceeded to remove two slices of gammon from my plate and replace them with. Yep you guessed it, two slices... More

Basic but well cooked and for the price excellent value. Ideal for family or friends. The location is OK but not a romantic restaurant.

We have been coming here for years but it has slowly been going down hill. We got seated at table and had to wipe the seats before we could sit on them and the floor under the table was disgusting, so we moved to another table which wasn't much better. The selection at the carvery was very poor. The floors... More

All you can eat breakfast, and they mean it. If you leave here hungry, it's your own fault. £4 for food, plus £2 for "bottomless" coffee & tea, then there's unlimited toast, butter, jams, the works. The cheese & bacon potatoes were very good, but I'm not sure yorkshire pudding works with a cooked breakfast though! Can't fault it, great... More

Value for money is the key at this restaurant. Despite being a bank holiday at lunchtime (there were more people queueing at 3pm when we left!) we were seated quickly and attended to by helpful and friendly staff who served us bottomless drinks very quickly. The carvery looked fresh and inviting with good meat portions and help yourself to limitless... More
