We ate at the restaurant on a Friday evening for my mother's birthday and had a bar meal the day after at lunchtime. On both occasions the food was excellent, the duck was delicious, my wife thought her burger was one of the best she had ever had. The service was both friendly and efficient. They also serve excellent beer!

We recently enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea at this restaurant during a holiday in the UK. The food was served on a three tier platter, the lowest section had three types of dainty fresh sandwiches; salmon, cucumber and ham. The middle tier had miniature lemon tarts, rhubarb crumble tarts and white chocolate cheesecakes. The top tier held fruit scones with jam and cream. All the food was fantastic. There was too much for us to finish it all. You could choose between tea, coffee, wine or beer included in the price which we felt was real value for money. The atmosphere, friendliness of the staff and the companionship of a special friend made this an awesome experience which we would definitely recommend to anyone.

We have been visiting The Royal Toby in Castleton Rochdale for over 20 years. This restaurant is one of three in the Decker Group. It is Restaurant with an attached motel within easy reach of the motorway.
This conversion from a former Mill owners house is full of orriginal features like the music room and other former reception rooms with original marble fireplaces as well Crystal chadeliers a feature of most rooms making it an excellent venue to take your family and friends. There are three restaurants each with a different theme located in an annexe.
The menus are a la carte with the option of taylor made orders to suit your requirement. We regularly choose the bar meals at lunch time for birthdays and other occasions The food is always to a high standard, why else would we repeatedly use this restaurant We would not hesitate but recommend the Royal Toby for quality of food, service at a reasonable price in pleasant surroundings.What a setting for a Wedding reception or even after a funeral.
