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.

It's a popular place so it's busy and you can't always reserve especially on special occasions. As carveries go it's a little above average. It's really about piling the plate as high as it goes. The food is ok and there has always been all the trimmings so they don't really run out of stuff to pile up.

Phoned today to request a booking for a table of 10 to be told this is not possible on a Saturday night. would have to sit on separate tables. Ok during week when tables can be pushed together( why not Saturdays?)Never mind there are plenty of local restaurants who are only too pleased to accommodate the CUSTOMER.

What you are served is a bit of a lottery depending on your choice. Mine comprised ‘bits’ off the end of the beef accompanied by a spoonful of the remaining peas but roast potatoes were hot having just been shovelled into the serving tray; gammon was also newly brought out. The carcase of the remains of a turkey sitting there... More

Have been here quite a few times over the last couple of years, but it seems to be going downhill. On our last visit there were 3 of us, we had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated, which given it was lunchtime was expected, but there were quite a few empty tables so couldn't really understand that.

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.

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
