Disappointing

Used to visit here regularly but haven't been in a while. Went for lunch with family and unfortunately the place is going down hill. From the impolite waitress to the very mediocre food, i'm in no great hurry to return.

We did not like the look of the Campanile Hotel restaurant where we were staying the night so walked down to the Toby Inn. Had to wait a few minutes for a table as it was busy, but no problem. The carvery meal was very good as fresh food was coming out all the time (we find carveries are poor... More

It had been a while since I had visited this local Toby, but was pleasantly surprised at just how good the the carvery section was both for the choice and quantity provided, this and the choices of both bottled and draft beers/lagers made for a pleasant experience.

Very nice food, but if you have small children better to go at the less busy times as sometimes have to wait for a table. Very busy restaurant and the staff are very friendly. Gorgeous surroundings, ideal for people staying in the premier inn opposite.

Stayed at the Premier Inn opposite and at our evening meal here and the following mornings breakfast. Couldn't fault the food or service one bit. Reasonably priced, no long wait, great service, tasty and hot. A little slow when waiting to pay for the evening meal especially as it wasn't that busy but not everything can be perfect. I would...

My husband and I have always loved this Toby carvery. We decided to visit yesterday and were really disappointed. Meat was tasteless and I was thankful that I had such a stingy portion, it was supposed to be pork! Husband had a tiny helping of ham and pork which was poor quality. Vegetables just warm and even the gravy was... More
