On a budget and hungry so wanted lunchtime restaurant that could fill my requirements, £6.95 for roast dinner, I had beef very tender and my partner had turkey this was moist, all the usual trimmings no complaints, you need to pay for parking but can redeem when you pay the bill. On the minus side the whole place needs updating... More

Thanks for your kind comments about the food . . . with regards to the décor we are currently replacing all the windows downstairs with new ones, and have replaced lots of furniture recently and will continue to ensure we invest to make the environment as good as the food! More

Was seated straight away which was good for a BH Monday @6pm. Waited for the meat to be brought out which was the only delay. Staff didn't seem too impressed to be working bank holiday but except from that exactly what you want from Toby. The only downside is the pub itself needs refurbishing!

Service was good food nice. Good food for a reasonable price would go again with the family. Tables a bit close together so difficult manoeuvring around.

Always busy, but I guess that's because food is good value for money Service is friendly and helpful. It does what it says on the tin But probably best Toby I have been to.

The general hygiene here is not all that . Dust and grime over food counter glass and heat lamps , greasy floor , food splatter up walls and dirty menus . Having said that , I still keep coming !

I've been there quite a few times, and on Thursday with a group of 7 for a Xmas dinner.(lunch actually) We all liked it as much as last year! We got everything we wanted, good service, big portions, good food (admit the potatoes were a bit overdone) The drinks and food are very reasonably priced. The only criticism I have... More

I like the Toby Carvery. The staff are generally polite and the food is nice, with many options. However, the tables and menus are sticky and the 'head chef' is always arguing with his colleagues and he is quite rude and abrupt to the customers. Being a vegetarian, I am obviously limited on what I can eat, the Toby Carvery... More

Excellent carvery, friendly staff, nice restaurant. Usually go in a Saturday for lunch and have always had a good dinner followed by a lovely dessert. There is a extensive choice of desserts, never sure which to choose!! Always leave the restaurant feeling completely full. Very good value for money.

I am from a different county however as most of my family live nearby, I have visited this venue many times over the past 2 decades (my Uncle even had his wedding reception here in the 90's). When I used to come with my grandma, they would try to accommodate us by getting us a table that was suitable for... More

Description
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 Brentwood's favourite carvery restaurant.
