They constantly do NOT have a supply of cereals. There is no price list available for the extras. The breakfast was more expensive than that charged in Scotland(why). Otherwise the food is good.

Although busy I was given a table with no trouble. Choice is limited but the value is superb. However the roast is a bit like a school dinner, particularly later in the evening when the food has been kept hot for a while. Also found the glasses grubby and poorly washed. Would go again as the price can't be beaten.

Plenty of choice of seasonal veg and veggie gravy was... More

Have visited the Toby Carvery Washington for many years and have always had good service, friendly staff and good value for money. The carvery is excellent and always served hot with fresh vegetables being put out on a regular basis.

Visited for a Sunday lunch, on arrival a lot of tables were still covered in plates with left over breakfasts on them. Took approx 15 minutes before these were cleaned up. The food itself was very bland and tasteless, not worth the money paid. Will not visit again, and will look elsewhere where cleanliness and quality of food is a... More

Six of us went for breakfast. It was busy, but found an empty large table in an empty shady area, but was told to move "because we like everybody sitting together". We had to sit by the window, in the sun, which is not good for me, and had to put tables together. Food was plentiful and good, especially the... More
