We have always rated the Toby carvery quite highly, not just for the food but the service. Admittedly the last few times we have been here we have been slightly disappointed so we haven't been for a while. Tonight we brought our children here for an easy tea and wish we hadn't bothered. The table was sticky, the beef was... More

last wednesday I really enjoyed my visit for lunch,a lthough by myself. there were not many children in, although half-term (so not too noisy). I chose the turkey carvery (I'd had beef the week before and found it rather fatty / grissly) with a bit of gammon. MANY choices of vegetables, whatever you want. I usually decline tho offer of...

Francess56, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We are very glad you enjoyed your meal. P.S the trick is to take a Yorkshire pud and put vegetables inside it, saves room on your plate! More

Visited here on the way home from Plymouth, and it was excellent. Had the carvery, which was superb with great choices of meat and veg, then the really nice dessert choices. Excellent overall. Highly recommended

Although we had booked and the restaurant was extra extremely quiet it took the waitress 15 minutes to show us to our table. Chef serving carvery was polite but the slow and unprofessional waitress service let Toby down. The waitress 'lady' with auburn hair pushed past us and made a rude comment as we left the restaurant. Shame for was... More

This place has to be one of the busyiest places of a Sunday. Once you try there carvery you know why. Fresh vegetables not frozen good cuts of meat and plenty to go round. If I had a fault it would be the staff can appear a little stressed sometimes and this then reflects on the service you receive not... More

We visited this establishment as a result of an excellent experience at the Toby Carvery, just off the M5 at Taunton in December. It proved to be an OK experience, but disappointing in terms of the variety of the vegetables on offer and the food being 'warm' at Roborough. It was obviously a very popular venue, but the staff didn't... More

I visited with family for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised with the food. The interior is a bit drab and could do with a lick of paint. The food was hot and plenty was available. The gravy and Yorkshire puddings are a bit weird as a breakfast item. The sausages were really tasty though the only thing missing is hash... More

Arrived at 13:00 for a 13:30 Sunday afternoon meal. Place packed, told the table wasn't ready, no problem we were early. We got drinks, someone found us seated us and made sure we had drinks. Three of our party were drivers and were told soft drink top ups were free. Lunch was tasty, warm and service friendly. Everybody had dessert.... More

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