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

Three of us visited for lunch. Pretty typical inexpensive carvery. Very good meat and acceptable veg though roast spuds a bit leathery. Generous and good crumble for pud with a half a pint of excellent custard. All very clean with very pleasant and helpful staff. Although fairly busy we appreciated being left to chat without pressure to vacate the table. Good value and would visit again.

Toby never set the world alight in the culinary stakes. Having said that...it does what it needs to do.

I have normally tries to avoid toby's but I'm glad I went here....the staff were so cheerful and polite...it made the difference.

So maybe...just maybe I'll try more of them....?

Visited on a Saturday evening in early December for a family celebration. The restaurant has been refurbished and was very busy, so it was a good job we’d booked in advance. There was a few minutes’ delay waiting for the table, but nothing to get upset about. After being shown to our table the drinks order was taken promptly and they arrived quickly, we then made our way to the carvery.

There was a choice of five meats and all looked very good. We were served quickly and with a reasonable amount of meat (though while we were in the queue the server changed and the new one was noticeably more generous than her predecessor).

There was a decent choice of vegetables and all were well presented – nothing looked either soaked to mush or dried up, the twin evils of carvery veg!

Various gravies and sauces were available on a side-table, though this could have done with a clean-up as there was congealed gravy spilled around on the table and down the sides of the containers which made it all look less than appetising.

Back at the table, everyone tucked into the food and the consensus was “very good”. All the meats were moist and tender and the vegetables well cooked and acceptably hot. Afterwards we sampled a range of desserts and once again, there were no complaints about the food.

The only niggle was that during the refurbishment, someone had decided to put “artworks” consisting of displays of cutlery on the walls. Each is encased in an acrylic box which projects about 15cm from the wall. This is all very well, except that they’re directly above some of the bench seats and at just the right height to ensure that people sitting on those seats (me, for instance) bash their heads on them every time they sit up straight! We made our views on this silliness known to the management so maybe something will have been done about them.

Overall, then, a good meal. Not 5-star quality but at six quid a head for the main course you can’t expect that. We all left well-fed and happy and would definitely return.

Went with family for the Christmas Carvery. Nothing out of the ordinary with the usual carvery choices. Food could have been much hotter and vegetables varied in quality - creamed potatoes a bit dry, but parsnips delicious!. A vegetarian option took ages to supply so other diners kept waiting. Have been a year ago and then it was much better. Pleasant waitress and the setting is warm and friendly.

Went here for the lunch time carvery at the height of the Christmas rush. The place was near enough at maximum capacity but only a 5 minute wait for a table for 5 and every aspect of the carvery food was very good. A credit to one and all for catering for so many people and with so many different vegtable dishes. £5.99 you can not go wrong.
