Nice friendly restaurant, took a while to get us seated into our pre booked seats but was ok, we had drinks at the bar while we waited. We had a choice between starter and main or main and dessert, this also took a while as we only seemed to have one waitress attending to about 30 of us, Nobody remembered... More

Went in today as had 20% off food, as well as free pud and free pigs in blankets. Was advised by waitress that couldn't have all three deals so as there was no ice cream decided on pigs in blankets. Wrong choice. Came late when we were halfway thru food. They were over poked and the bacon was crispy to... More

Have been a frequent diner for sometime now , lunch time carvery and a drink at just under a tenner is great value. This is not a fine dining experience and you don't expect that for the money. Will be back again soon ***

I generally, when I come here go for the Carvery. It is a hit and miss which is why the overall rating I have given as an average. Definitely a wide selection of different vegetables plus stuffing - however when it comes to the meat selection - not sure whether the Chef's are instructed to do this but appears to... More

The vegetables were overlooked and sad looking. The beef was stringy, chewy and not pleasant. There was empty mint sauce bowl. This has gone downhill which is such a shame as I visited at least every two weeks

It's been a number of years since I have been here (or to any Toby Carvery) and couldn't believe the value! I would never go on a Sunday as it would be too hectic. The arrival was nice and we were seated but it then took a long time for the server to come and ask if we wanted drinks... More

We decided to give cooking a miss on Saturday and go to Toby for a roast. There was no usual menu available for drinks - I prefer to peruse the menu rather than have to decide from what I am told by our server. Anyway we both had carvery. The turkey, gammon and pork were excellent. I had beef, turkey... More

Thank you for your review. I apologise for the lack of menu as we are waiting for a new batch to come through from the printers. As for the beef, we use a rib which can sometimes have the sinew in the middle. Again, I do apologise but I am glad that you enjoyed the rest of your experience and... More
