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

During a long business trip and fed up with local hotel choices (often expensive, or anything cheaper deep fried) I stumbled on this carvery. A superb selection of good quality perfectly cooked veggies AND a good selection on meats cooked just right. I have to say the service is first class, and the establishment is well worth a visit for a healthy selection for those away from home on busines. Did I mention the cost? LITERALLY PEANUTS fantastic value which in no way demeans the quality. Well done Toby.

We regularly pop in for a cheap bit of dinner as and when we fancy it. We have always had a decent carvery from here and service has always been very good.

This is a chain carvery. Food is always plentiful so has to be value for your money. A lot of people take advantage of that. Staff always polite and friendly. We have booked the back room twice. Last time with 10 crazy rugby under 10's. They coped well as they were wild. Great breakfasts.

We visited at lunchtime. The service started well, and drinks arrived promptly. The carvery was easy to access, and it was great for my sister-in-law needed a low carbohydrate meal, which was easy to organise with the self service. The meat was tasty, but not huge portion(the Yorkshire puddings were massive). The vegetables were very varied, and changed quickly as they ran out. We ordered puddings. They were a long time coming, so much so that the ice cream was melting when it arrived. Very reasonable prices and tasty food.

Thank you for your feedback and sorry that we didn't exceed your expectations on your last visit.

We would always recommend that any concerns are brought to the duty manager at the time of the dining. Therefore we could of tried to resolve the issues. This is not the usual high standard of service we aim for, all feedback is shared with our teams and we hope you'll give us another opportunity in the future.

Brilliant service from one particular chef, Tarren mcqueeney, had a good chat and satisfied with the meats! This is were I regularly go, most of chefs hardly speak if at all, also they look very grumpy, also had one waitess who stuck us in the corner and totally ignored us the whole time.
