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
