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

The only good thing I can say about this restaurant, is the excellent service. The food was bland and over cooked. Even though I am 61, most of the clientele were a good 20 years older than me, and the food matched them. It was almost like baby food....

Thank you for your feedback. We have recently been refurbished with a fresh, brand new Toby Carvery look and have been under new management for the last couple of years. We are confident that things will have improved since you left this feedback. We have recently been working back through all the feedback left online over the last few years so we really hope you could give us another try. Many thanks Team Hinton.

We have been to the Toby Carvery many times and have never been disappointed. The breakfasts are great and really good value for money and the carvery roast is just lush - especially if you use a voucher like we did last time and get two roasts and two ice creams for £12.50! The atmosphere is nice and friendly and the service is very good. Highly recommended!

Been here several times, Althought the carvery is very good and always fresh, I find that the seating and floors are very mucky. Obviously there is always a quick turnaround and so staff possible don't have time to clean the floor, and small children have been dropping food (maybe some adults as well!)

We ate here early one Friday evening & got seated straight away. There was a good selection of meat, yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes & many different vegetables. We had the ice-cream for dessert which was served with a choice of flavoured sauces & a chocolate flake.
The drinks were very reasonably priced & the whole meal cost less than most a takeaway meals.
