We have been going to the Toby Carvery on Christmas Eve for a meal for many years as a Christmas treat for the family to start the festive celebrations. But, unfortunately this year was very disappointing. The food was excellent as always, but the service was not up to their standard. We felt as if they couldn't be bothered to serve us and we seem to have to wait quite some time before we were served with our food we were also not told about the menu's as there was a two course and a three course, it seems everyone in the party has to have the same menu! We took the hint to leave as they turned the lights out and we were told that they were laying the tables ready for Christmas Day and that the bar would be closed in 10 minutes, this was just before 8.00p.m. This is something else we were not told when we booked the table as we have never experienced this on previous years. I think that maybe they shouldn't open Christmas Eve so that they can concentrate on Christmas Day. It's a shame, but, I think we will be going somewhere else next year and wouldn't recommend the Toby Carvery for Christmas Eve.
