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

I took my mum,for an afternoon carvery 15.30 hrs,paid for drinks at the bar the girl behind the bar wasn't very welcoming and then went through to the carvery eating area we went up to get served but then we had to wait as the staff were having a good natter in the kitchen with some children in the kitchen,am sure this breaks health and safety rules,the food had been stood a while by the look of the dried up carrots peas and various veg,may of been better if we had arrived at lunch time when the veg would of been a bit fresher,not great tasting carvery that day,had better in the past,gone down hill.

Been here a few times and its gradually gone down hill but our last visit was really poor. Dry meat, hard peas, very lumpy gravy the condiments had all ran out and it wasnt even busy so theres no excuse. The staff were brilliant but the food really was awful.....we will be going to the edenthorpe carvery from now on where food quality is consistent.

Our last visit here not not good at all as I said in my previous review. However, a return visit after talking to staff at Mitchells and Butlers who own Toby Carvery, proved that constructive criticism can work. This meal, whilst it did have a small hitch (undercooked potatoes, soon removed after a word with staff) was much nicer.

We stayed in doncaster for 1 night and turned down the hotel breakfast in favour of the Toby Carvery, as we had eaten at the 1 in hull and always enjoyed it. However on this occasion we left disappointed. Cold hard eggs, hard bacon and dreadful coffee. All the surfaces needed a good clean. Our table was sticky with bits of food but was laid out with new knives and forks. The toast was nice however but its a bit steep paying £3.99 for toast and Jam. Such a shame as this has put us off any future visits.

Thank JoJoven
