Mr Grumpy nearly spoils the experience

The breakfast here is actually very good value at £3.99 per person (excluding drinks). But whilst the food is good and the environment is OK, the manager really is Mr Grumpy. The first time we came we thought he might be having a bad day, but it seems from subsequent visits that this really is... read more

Had a lovely meal here. Food was hot and fresh. Plenty of veg to choose from. Potatoes were crispy and tasted delightful. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant for a fantastic carvery meal.

When the "Carver" at Toby's learned that we were from the United States but live in Germany, he began saying how much he dislikes Germans. At first it was funny but the "funny" turned into serious and he said if a German came in, he would refuse to serve him. When we told him that he had just served a... More

Also, food was very tepid. We did complain and weren't charges for the meal but it was very disappointing. We tried breakfast the next... More

For a relaxed, inexpensive meal this carvery is a great choice. I have been several times over the years, and have never been disappointed. The staff are always polite and friendly, always willing to help. The food, obviously works round the carvery, but other dishes are available. The carvery offers a choice of 4 meats - beef, pork, turkey and... More

I have been into this Toby carvery several times over the last couple of years, they are a bit variable. For the price you can eat very well, but sometimes the meat serving is very spartan, and the vegetables again vary. For a quick and easy meal out they're fine, my 9 year old loves it, as long as you're... More

We went on a Wednesday, so was able to get a table straight away, if you go on a Sunday you might be in for a wait. The food was average, but all you can eat on potatoes and vegetables. The young waitress was excellent, the service was the best we had in long time, much better that some upper... More

I have been to this carvery more than 10 times. I was never disappointed with the food but the service needs to improve a lot. Waitresses are quite ignorant and on many occasions I had to keep walking around in the restaurant area to find a waitress and to order a drink. Currently they are not serving ice cream but... More
