Believe it or not, I had never been to a Toby Carvery and I certainly won't be rushing back. For £10 I wasn't expecting much, but got much less than that. To be fair, the service was fine, but the food was so bland that we only had a few mouthfuls and was out of there within 10 minutes

Four of us had a delicious, satisfying and enjoyable lunch yesterday. Service was polite and helpful. Buffet lunch had four meats, plus Yorkshire puds, help-yourself first-class pork crackling, numerous help-yourself Fresh vegetable dishes and sauces. The gammon, pork, turkey and beef we tried were excellent cuts, moist, tender, and perfectly cooked. We (greedily) piled our plates with mashed + roast... More

I was in the Reading area unexpectedly on 4th April and called in the Toby Carvery at Caversham for a meal. From the moment I entered the front door, I was met by the relief manager (Dan) who had a degree of attitude.

For less than a fiver, this really is incredible value. Eat as much as you want and go back for more. This is a self service buffet style breakfast with items being topped up as they get low or finish.

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