Toby Carvery has a simple formula - lots of food on a more or less production line basis. They are always busy and generally get people through efficiently. They're fine for a reasonably priced family meal. This one was rather slow. The carvery was slow, and therefore there was a huge queue that took 25 minutes to get through. It... More

My family & I travelled here from Salford Quays while we were on holiday, as it was the quickest Toby to get to from there. The seating was bad as we all felt squashed in as the tables were all close to each other. My food was tough but because I had gravy on it I was just about able... More

There were a party of 15 of us and to start with the waitress was quite attentive. The food was good - carvery and most of the drinks were brought to the table for us. However, our waitress was going home after we finished our meals and so told us she would send someone to take our desert order. That... More

Having never been to a Toby carvery before when I arrived i was a little unsure of the procedure. We entered the building and looked around to see if someone had to seat us, after waiting ten minutes we figured you just go and find a table-how wrong was I. We sat down and a young lady asked us what... More

We've not been to this Toby since we made the mistake of calling for breakfast a good while ago! But this time we called for Sunday lunch and it wasn't too bad. We were told there would be a 25 minute wait for a table which we said was fine, and we were actually seated within about 10. It was... More

Went for my nephews birthday meal. We have never visited a Toby Carvery before but were not asked if we were familiar with the ordering process by any member of staff. We had to figure it out for ourselves. Food was average carvery, nothing special. We then asked a waitress if we could order ice cream for the children. She... More

I would have given this ZERO if I could have. Absolutely disgusting. No wonder at breakfast time you pay before you eat. £15 for 2 breakfasts and 2 orange juices. The breakfast was disgusting. We got up and the bacon looked as though it has been sat there for HOURS. Sausages were all dry. The potato hash was undercooked, the... More

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