“Toby or not Toby”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Visited yesterday for Sunday lunch, the seating area which once was has now been made part of the restaurant to cope with the seating demands for eating guests, not a good idea in my opinion, as whilst you wait for almost 45 mins for a table there's nowhere to sit and nowhere to put your drinks etc. that said the food is gorgeous, and I've even started having my business meetings there on a morning, any excuse for the all you can eat breakfast for £3.99

“All the vegetables you can eat”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

The Toby Carvery is a good selection of unlimited vegetables with a fairly reasonable sized portion of meat.
I would warn you though, the meat varies in quality depending on what day you go. A slice of pork was presented to me which can only be described as fatty mush, but the chef was happy to clear my plate and give me some good meat.
All in all, a hearty meal, well worth the money paid!

“Top value”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Six of us visited the carvery on Thursday night, it was really busy so had to wait thirty minutes. Its a shame you cant book. We had vouchers which was two for ten pound. The chef serving was very friendly. There were four choices of meat, although the remains of the beef joint was offputting and this was still being carved. Fortunately they soon bought a new one. The vegetables were a good choice and were continually being replinished. Overally it was an enjoyable meal for excellent value
