No Bitters on sale but the Carvery made up for this super value for hungry travelers and situated right next to the Hotel.

Thank covert

My partner and I visited and had the carvery which was priced at a very reasonable £5.99, however the meal and parts of the service could have been improved. We were told by the friendly waitress to help ourselves and when we dared to lift a plate and went to choose side dishes were told abrubtly by another staff member, "don't touch that until the chefs there!!" and yet another staff member removed the plates from our hands and sat them down. The menu states you can have all four meats and we would have liked to have tried two or three but the chefs attitude made us choose very quickly to get to the self service extras. I had turkey which was good but my partners roast beef was nothing short of poor, more fat than beef unfortunately. The roast potato's below average and pretty hard inside, gravy and the mash was ok but the veg had seen better days, The saving grace was the yorkshire puddings which were huge and homemade and very tasty, would have paid the extra £1.50 easily for second helpings of those if it we didn't feel pushed to leave, having arived at 8:50, finished at 9:15pm and being told repeatedly it closed at 10pm. All in all not too bad for less than a tenner a head with a drink each, would have spent more, had seconds and probably dessert had the atmosphere been better though.

Have been here several times. The staff are always really friendly... and that's the only consistent thing about this place. Food wise, sometimes it's great, other times it's not. Bear in mind, I mean the Carvery option. The food from their menu is always excellent. We found that the United Services in Motherwell do a Carvery at the weekend. It's a little more expensive than this, but the food is always excellent, so to be honest, we don't frequent the Toby Carvery much at all these days. That being said, it's always a nice environment inside, and the staff are lovely and service is always efficient but definitely not the best restaurant in the area for quality.
