The time had come for that perfect Sunday roast. I have been here before and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere.
This time I was left bitterly disappointed. As I approached the door with excitement for some food a sign on the door read no carvery due to unforeseen circumstances.
Gutted was an understatement. I have to give this place 3 stars as I enjoyed food on previous visits but this time just disappointed.
There is a large car park wich is great as I no this place gets busy. Sundays there usually is a small wait.
I really like the outside of this pub has a warm feeling to the place.
Overall was left disappointed, a place usually good to visit. Will go back at some point and just hope they have food available !
Got told table would be 20 minute wait but In fact we were at our table within 10 minutes and this is on a Sunday where they are at their busiest.
The best part of this trip to Toby Carvery was the waitress. I have never been served by such a lovely and enthusiastic lady! You can tell that she is so passionate about doing her job to her best ability. She made my roast dinner taste so much better!!
Her name was Kate and I thought she was fantastic!
Great place, great food! Under £9.50 on a Sunday for a huge plate of food and a huge Yorkshire pudding!
The carvery itself is a bargain. We went to Toby Carvery because we'd got some discount vouchers that made it sound super-cheap, and when we got there we found that we were only saving about 50p because it's super-cheap anyway. For a fiver you can get your choice (or a bit of each) from chicken, gammon and beef, and as many vegetables as you want to eat.
Like other carveries, the meat is a little bit of a gamble- depending on when you're eating and how busy they've been, you might end up with the juiciest newly-roasted cut, or a dry bit that's been sat on display for too long. Only decide what meat you want at the moment you get asked The vegetables are all steamed, making them a bit tasteless and soggy but they're not too bad considering.
Sadly the bargain carvery is the only attraction to this place. Some of the staff are friendly but others are just downright grumpy. The attempts at character in the decor feel very artificial, the whole place just feels a bit cold, clinical and miserable- it's just not a 'nice' pub. But if cheap pub food is what you're after, it'll sort you out.
About as much atmosphere as a bag of smashed crabs, unfortunately all new build pubs within newish built housing estates suffer the same fate, however it does do a very cheap carvery that isn't too bad, it's not great but a choice of 3 meats, veg and all the trimmings for the price is a good deal, the only positive I could find on my visit!
Don't bother. Plastic pub. Poor service. Poor stewed and tasteless food. Been a few times over the years. Never again. Prefer to stay in! Save your money and go somewhere else.
Went there for breakfast and i thought i was going to chug
good value food, however you do get the impression that you are being rushed! there always seems to be a slow re fill on the veg.. which most of the time means you go without! overall ok
