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

Lovely meat but the yorkshires were greasy and the apple gravy left a lot to be desired! Also very noisy clientele. The price was reasonable at £10 for 2 but I wouldn't pay much more!

We have been to this Carvery Restaurant on a number of occasions and generally the food and service has been very good. Certainly, this is great value for money. You can get two good sized Carvery meals with a beer and a large white wine for less than £18. There is always a wide selection of vegetables and enormous Yorkshire... More

Went out for dinner with some of the family. The first thing we noticed that although there was a wait of 25 minutes in reality it was more like 15. Enough time for a pre-dinner drink in the bar. The bar area was not particularly clean but this was more likely to do with how busy the place was. When... More

We went on Thursday night expecting it to be quiet, but it was really busy,a good sign. We had a short wait in the bar until a table became available. A negative here was the tables had not been cleared of empties but maybe they also had been caught out by how busy it was. The staff where all really... More

Visited the Toby on 9th Jan with the family and were disappointed on this occasion due to the quality of the beef joint, very fatty. Also, the kitchen appeared to wind down around 9pm after which point the music in the kitchen got ramped up to ridiculous levels. This resulted in it being heard in the seating area when the...
