It's an ok carvery. Cheap and cheerful and a pleasant enough place to visit for a meal out. Didn't wow me but nothing particularly to criticise. Just ok.

The restaurant there was crowded and VERY noisy so we opted to check out the area for somewhere else to eat and came across the Toby Carvery. Glad we did!

The cavary was only £6.99 loads to choose from good friendly fast service. Next to a couple of cash machines if you want to have cash for the tip.

This was my second visit to Toby Carvery and found it be very pleasant indeed. Generally at the Carvery you can choose between four roast meats and help yourself to a number of sides that are on offer. I had a bottomless glass of soft drink for a reasonable price and we also had a dessert with our meal. While... More

Visited while on a short break in Edinburgh. Breakfast was not enjoyable- bacon was like leather, fried eggs had been left on the buffet for so long they were solid, potato scones so tough they could hardly be cut through, toast was like warm bread. Worst of all the tomatoes were tinned, not fresh. Tea and coffee were not included... More

The vegan and vegetarian options were amazing. Loads of choices and all high quality, and great value as you can still get the veg from the carvery :)

We often stop off here for our breakfast when we attend events in Edinburgh and the breakfast is lovely. There is so much choice and we are never disappointed. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Description
Welcome to the Toby Carvery Edinburgh West. 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 Edinburgh’s favourite carvery restaurant. Drop by and you'll find lots more on offer, including cooked breakfasts and tasty specials.
