Most of the staff are very friendly. However I didn't like the way the carvery chef looked me up and down as if I wasn't good enough to be there. I believe his name may be three? I have along with my family been coming...More

Stopped here on the way back from Torquay. It was busy as it was Sunday but we got a table quite quickly. About 10-15 minute wait for the carvery. Food was good as expected. Staff very accommodating. Worth stopping for

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