Ate here a number of times. Do not normally have to wait too long for a table. Food above average for a carvery. Good value & staff friendly.

Hi, Thank you very much for your great feedback. Obviously with being an excellent Toby Sundays are rather busy so that is why we now take online bookings as well as the walking to help people who would rather book and have plans after or simply don't want to wait. I hope this might help yourself on your next visit.... More

Good value food served in a pleasant environment, some of the Toby's can sometimes do not reach expectations, with the Harlow branch I have always found the food to be fresh and well presented, even when the restaurant is busy the staff cope well and are polite and welcoming. Tends to be busy at weekends, which is a good sign.

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