Visited on a Tuesday evening with our grandson. Fantastic value at £6.95 on Tuesday evening. The pizzas were thin and crispy just as we like them and the shellfish pasta was superb!

We visit the Toby virtually every Sunday evening , never had a bad meal and the staff are always very welcoming. I have noticed the last few poor reviews and I suspect an ulterior motive. I think people should look past the few recent bad reviews strangely all within a couple of days, perhaps someone with an axe to grind.... More

Having read several reviews from 29 Jan, I felt I had to comment. I was also in the restaurant at the same time as the large birthday party that have left several reviews. There were small children in the party who were largely left unattended and allowed to run freely around the restaurant, being loud and unruly. Waitresses were carrying... More

Came here with family for my birthday meal. Booked in advance and we were seated very quickly. I wasn't too keen on the veg soup starter or the chicken kebab, it was a bit dry. However, everybody else's meals were fab and if we were to return I would definitely order the spicy meatball dish. Read a few reviews about... More

Then we waited a further 45 for starters, which wasnt a problem at first but when the chef comes out making sexual innuendos to my wife and 15 year old daughter i had to have a word. Further more we waited for an... More

We are a family run restaurant and pub. Beautifully located in the Broadhead Valley with panoramic views across the West Pennine Moors, we have been cooking here since 1987. We pride ourselves on the quality of our food which is made fresh everyday. Our dough is made by hand and baked daily for the freshest bread. Our meats and fish are sourced locally to ensure great flavour in their freshness.
