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

Have been to Toby carvery many times, mostly the Thomas Kemble at Wickford, and we have never been disappointed. This was our second visit to the Artichoke and what a disappointment. Our first time there it was ok and I thought perhaps it was just a one off but after yesterday's visit we won't be going back. We arrived with... More

As carveries go this was not special but as the only one in the area it is very busy. If another opened I think people would go there! The queue for food was far too long, people were complaining about the length of time we were waiting, circa 15-20 minutes in the snake style queuing system. By the time you... More

Ok, from the beginning. Seated at a table. Myself and my three boys decided we didn't want the carvery, just order from the menu. Waited half an hour. Went to see the floor manager as I was beginning to think we might have to pay at the bar (my first time visit). Answer no and member of staff served us... More

It pains me to make this review but as the title suggests there are massive problems in the kitchen. Yes we know key members have staff have gone however remember all those Toby adverts on how to cook meat, roast potatoes and cook Yorkshire Puds . How about following the instructions !. This was our third visit in three weeks... More

I've visited this Toby Carvery a number of times and have always been impressed with the meals. Staff always welcoming and helpful. Excellent breakfasts and roast dinners. Amazingly the choice and quality of vegetables was as good as the roasts. Great value for money.

Great value for money, staff friendly and welcoming, I had the roast chicken salad as my main and it was really nice, made a change from eating a carvery. One suggestion, please bring back curry night.
