“Cannot be beaten for value for money.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

I know a lot of people who turn their nose up at the sound of a Toby Carvery, but that's probably because they've never tried it.
It's a regular haunt for us when we fancy a roast without all of the washing up!

At Snaresbrook, the staff are always friendly and the service is always good and quick.

How they manage to produce the food for not much more than the price of a McDonalds is beyond me.... outstanding value and it's the only place that I will eat Turkey (so moist and consistently perfect).

One word of caution.... because it's a carvery, the veg can be sat for a while and end up a little overdone, so my advice is get here early.

You can get better roasts, in other places; but for me, the sheer value for money alone is good enough for 5 stars.

“real value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

As a vegetarian sometimes a carvery is not the best option. But this was the exception to the rule.it was so good. I can't find fault. As we sat at our table our watiter advised us of how things worked and asked if any of we were vegetarian or had any dietary needs. I advised Iwas vegetarian and was shown a number of dishes to chose from. All of which I liked thus making my choise difficult. I made my choise and was told t would take approximately 10 minutes. We ordered drinks and we were told we could proceed to the carvery when we were ready. To my surprise I wasalso advised to go get whatvever vegetables I wanted. Which I did, the chef told me there was also vegetarian gravy. On return to the table my meal arrived and I tucked in and enjoyed. Four of us dined , and all four of us rolled out the door. Totally satisfied. Would highly recommend
