I came here again after my last amazing visit I thought it's time to see if they can keep up appearances, I was not let down, james the host/manager guy was very polite and asked me about my day and how my kids were (I known this chap since school) Our waitress was anna who offered to explain the carvery,...

Good for a place to get a drink and do work. Although the food section is clearly very popular there are quiet places to get your head down and rattle some work out. Even on a Friday evening. Don't personally like the food as not a fan of mass made roasts and the venue is a bit dated. Also a... More

The staff didn't give a damn about us, the so called important customers, awful customer service. Didn't care if they had customers or not. Never going back!

A very busy restaurant. Good food at reasonable prices. A nice place to go for a social life. Staff are pretty keen to make your visit as good as it possibly could. Portion sizes are limited to how much you can pile on your plate. Only criticism I can raise... The handles of the serving spoons get very hot under... More

Visited on sunday 20th November. Booked a table for 7 pm as did not want to wait for table as eating with my children. Seated very promptly at 7 pm. However that was a total waste of time as we finally reached the carvery at 7.20 due to the queue which was at least 40 people long. I wouldn't bother... More

Thankyou for your feedback, Our sundays can get quite busy, we do our best to cater for everyone. As expected there is a chance we may have a que at the carvery deck. We do have extra staff on to deal with the volume of people to make sure you get served quicker. We do apologise that you had to... More

Pretty awful experience not the place to go with young children. Firstly was about 100 degrees in there so was pretty uncomfortable when waiting around. Finally got to table took about 20 mins for waitress to even acknowledge us at which point my husband was already queuing and I was waiting with our children. Took about 30 mins for him... More

Thankyou for your feedback, during our busy periods it is advisable that you book a table through our website to save any waiting around. our website is www.tobycarvery.co.uk As expected, the waiting time for food will be slightly longer due to the sheer volume and popularity of the restaurant on a sunday hope to see you again soon!

Visited midweek at 5.30pm. Beef good , vegetables freshly cooked, cabbage, parsnips, peas, beans, carrots, cauliflower cheese and roast potatoes. Good time to visit as it wasn't busy. Families arrived later and it became very noisy with children screaming! The price is very reasonable. The waitress serving us was very attentive. The decor is very tired and dirty and is... More

If you like a nice carvery then I recommend going here. Usual trips here are on a sunday and it is extremely popular so would warn you to be prepared to wait. Tables waiting time on a Sunday can be up to as long as 2 hours. Then you have to take another queue obviously to get your food. Staff... 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.
