Went here with my sister on a Sunday. Food was lovely, I just don't see why a Sunday makes a difference on price when they serve the same food all week.

6 of us booked a table for a Friday evening and the place was packed. Service was a little chaotic but the staff were pleasant despite being rushed off their feet. The food is standard carvery fare.

I went here with my partner and stepson. I hadn't been to the river inn for many years but had really good childhood memories of eating there. The decor is aged and there isn't really much atmosphere. We went for a carvery and the food was good however the waitress service was minimal and as my stepson has a dairy... More

Visited late Sunday, had to wait ages at the door to be finally noticed by staff, wasn't warmly greeted, then had to wait for someone to take our drinks order after eventually asking a waiter, carvery was average, not worth the £10, had to wait a long time to order deserts, overall a disappointing visit.

I visit this Toby fairly regularly. It looks so much smarter after a refit. Could do with a bell at the carvery to alert the chef but otherwise everything I expect from a Toby: a good choice of meat, great selection of vegetables which is why I like Toby so much. None of this hiding a meager portion of veg... More

Ate here tonight as we were passing through Eastleigh. Has been refurbished since we last visited here. Meat was lovely, as was veg, but the gravy was so thick, not usually like that. Staff were friendly and polite. Would visit again when in the area.

Everyone that knows me will tell you that I love a good Carvery. This is definitely one of my favourites! The potatoes, vegetables and stuffing, Yorkshire puddings, sauces and gravy are always great ;with plenty of choice too. The only thing that isn't always great, (other than having to wait to get a table and then queue), is the meat... More

Booked a table knowing how busy this place is. All four of us ordered from the menu rather than have the roast as there was a great big long queue at the carvery counter. My meal was delivered but the other three still had to go up to the carvery to "choose their veg". Apparently their meals were under the... More

Great Carvery for a Sunday roast - very busy on Sunday's - booking essential or be prepared to wait a couple of hours - lovely aspect overlooking the river, with outdoor seating.

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