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

“Good for the price”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

This was actually better than I thought it would be. The staple ingredients- the meat, the veg and the potatoes were all very nice. Things like the stuffing and bread sauce were clearly very cheap and not that nice. But for the price you can't complain. I you want something cheap and cheerful and plentiful and relatively quick then this is a good place to come.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This place looks pretty touristy from the outside and, given the really reasonable price, I was skeptical about the quality before going in. Instead, I found a lovely pub-like atmosphere with great food at a great price. Good variety of sides and meats, and really good Yorkshire puddings. Would recommend for families and couples, or for single travelers like me!

“Nice pleasant pub with large beer garden”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We visited with a dog so only used the beer garden that was large, clean and with comfortable seating. Staff were friendly and heloful and prices were good. The queue for the carvery was long so must be worth the wait!

“Toby Restaurant.”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Stopped at the Toby as we were picking family up from the airport and we were looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful to eat. It is certainly that. The place is a bit run down and badly in need of a make over. There was plenty of food but it could have been a lot hotter. The plates could also have been warmer. In fairness the Chef was a cheery chap and helpful, most of the staff in fact were pretty friendly but it is pretty ordinary. However for the price not a bad deal.

“Good Pub but...........arcade machine in the bar!!!!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The Toby was a decent local pub, busy through in the carvery and rather too hot at times due to inadequate ventilation or air conditioning but not a bad pub for a drink with the wife. Then came "The Machine"!!!!! Who in their right mind thought it a good idea to put a kids "grab a toy" machine in the bar area??? The place is now overun with unsupervised children clambering to use the machine, I can't believe the licensing board approved its location to be honest! Maybe I should ask if they did?
