Description: Welcome to the Toby Carvery Loughborough. When it comes to roast dinners, we really know our stuff. Every day our chefs lay on a feast of tender, hand-carved fresh meats with all the trimmings - including towering Yorkshire puds, golden roasties with and plenty of freshly prepared vegetables. We even do a fantastic all you can eat breakfast too.

Always busy- thats a good thing for me. I dont mind waiting for a table for 10 mins at a place where you know when youve eaten your ready to sit down for 1/2hour because your full as a butchers dog ! Always worth a visit when out in the car. If you have a student phobia of some kind give it a miss - or go when they go back to mummys house !

A rubbish Toby in my opinion. Staff are rude and couldn't care less. Last time i had a meal here the turkey was pink so i didnt eat the meat. The people opposite also complained about the food and came away most unhappy. On another occasion the gravy was disgusting and tasted like someone had put a cigerette in it as it tasted of tobacco. Avoid this restaurant like the plague it needs shutting down. There are some lovely toby carverys around. But sadly this is not one of them. Il never come back to the Loughborough Toby, they have had enough chances in the past, I think this was there 20th chance, enough is enough now!

We've been to this carvery numerous times and have never had a bad experience in the past. It has been a year since we last went here and the difference was very very noticeable!
The staff are nice and friendly and we did get a table very quickly but it was the food that was the real let down! I understand that it is a Toby Carvery so i wasn't expecting Michelin stars but this was dire! The yorkshire puddings were tiny and not to their usual standard and as the chef carved the turkey there was blood spurting out of it, he could clearly see this and was handing plates of blood stained slices of meat out! Needless to say i ordered the beef as an alternative which was terrible and full of fat and gristle, so much so that we couldn't eat it! The vegetables were ok but they had ran out of leeks and there was a ten minute wait for mashed potato....how can that happen?! Clearly no planning re the food replenishment! There was no stuffing either!!! Lastly the bread sauce was lumpy milk......surely its not difficult to make it!!!
I am really disappointed with this because it was always a good place to go ( especially to get rid of a Sunday hangover! ) however i won't be returning back in a hurry! I am not sure whether they have just got complacent here and they know that they will get customers so are not bothered about the standards but i won't be coming back as a return customer.
