Went here last night and found the food to have gone down hill, and the portion size has decreased, which forces most men to go king size and the Veg appears to be low quality. The Restaurant has been refurbished but the toilets are still not very inviting, smelly and one of the toilets was out of order. Yes its... More

Absolute rubbish. Very little food, very very slow replenishing, long queues waiting for food to be replenished and no knives or forks on table. Went as a party of four adults and two children as a birthday treat, left very dissatisfied and still hungry. Would not go back again in a hurry.

It might be best to book your table as it can get quite busy at times although you can just turn up and have a drink, and they will find you a table as soon as possible. The carvery is very good with at least three different types of meat on offer, then you just load up your plate with... More

I use TOBY CARVERY's a lot & this one lived up to expectations. Iy you are staying at the Holiday Inn near by its a no-brainer & no contest with the food at the Holiday Inn. £6.99 is a great deal for lovely traditional British grub. Friendly staff & good service

The Washington Toby Carvery has recently been redecorated and looks much nicer inside since this has been done. It makes your visit and the atmosphere much more pleasant. The food is always of a good standard, although the vegetables available are sometime not always consistent (eg roasted parsnips are hardly ever available on a Sunday). Also during busiest periods the... More
