Used to think this was the best carvery in the area, but not so. For one the staff have changed and don't appear as cheerful as the others last time we visited. The meat although thoroughly cooked seem to have a dry taste.

Food was fantastic and value for money. Only issues were the ladies toilets which had no soap in the dispenser, wet patch at the side of toilet & cobwebs in the cubicle.

Welcome to the Toby Carvery Watergate Toll. 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 Bolton’s favourite carvery restaurant. Drop by and you'll find lots more on offer, including cooked breakfasts and tasty specials.
