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

I hosted a group of four and the unkempt, scruffy manager directed his comments to the male diner. He repeatedly addressed me as "love" - very unprofessional. Prices opportunistically inflated for Jan. 1st.
The food was only warm. I doubt that we will dine at this Carvery again.

Sunday evening (7pm) is a busy time at Toby's. Luckily our friends had arrived before us so we didn't have to wait in the long queue in front of the temporarily unmanned stand to be shown to our table.
The ambiance was warm and welcoming but a tad noisy. The noise was exacerbated by a screaming child whose parents did not seem very interested in doing something about it.
Still, we were determined to have a good time so we waited for our waitress to arrive and explain to us how it all worked. And waited...
The poker-faced chef at the roast counter decided to do all the cleaning and tidying up as we approached the counter, which added to our salivating mouths' anticipation for the feast that was to follow.
And a feast it was. Five different types of meat (pork, beef, turkey, lamb and gammon) and all sorts of veg in generous portions. As we moved off the counter and to the gravy 'train', five different gravy sauces were on display - delicious!
With plates full to their rims, we sat down and enjoyed every bite.
The plates took a while to be cleared off the table but it was time for desserts so any attempt for pointing that out evaporated soon enough. Our ladies opted to pass on the desserts but my step-son and I took a bullet each for the team and ordered a lovely vanilla cheesecake and the Honeycomb Sunday. As we stayed on the diet coke, the bill came to a reasonable £70.
As I said in my summary, the service could be better but I appreciate the restaurant staff was run off their feet. Still, our waitress and the lady who appeared to be the manager on that shift had the time to share a smile and a joke, in sharp contrast to the chefs at the counters.
We will try it again perhaps during a quieter time.

We returned to the One Oak on Christmas Eve with our extended family, some 30 of us enjoyed the start of Christmas by breakfasting together. The manager had arranged for us to have the private room and there was a Christmas tree under which we were able to put gifts for the children. It was a grand start to our Christmas catching up with family some of whom had come for Christmas from Australia. Food delicious and service friendly. See you again soon One Oak.

So upon arrival had to wait around no welcome or greeting,
Breakfast had a poor selection, dried up breakfast and no cereal or Danish pastry selection.
And to top it off no santa! Try explaining this to a four year old! Manager was about as useful as a chocolate teapot!
