It's hard to fault the Toby in Lower Earley. Cheap, good quality food, lots of choice, consistent levels of quality and service. We had an excellent breakfast at the weekend. Really impressed.

Typically good value tasty meal. Nothing fancy but very satisfying with friendly service. Plenty of choice of vegetable options to go with generous portions of roast meat.

We had a Celebration Package, for my father's birthday, with a meal for 11 people. One was vegetarian and one was a toddler. The carvery was excellent; food hot and tasty with plenty of sides from which to choose. I had the gammon, which I was a little worried about as sometimes gammon can be salty, but this was delicious.... More

Arrived at 2pm and was surprised how busy it was. Despite this we were seated promptly and were immediately offered drinks which arrived soon after. The carvery servers had a great sense of humour and served generous portions. If you like a good roast dinner with a variety of meats and veg there's nothing not to like. Special mention for...

Had a really lovely all you can eat breakfast here. I have always found this pub clean and tidy. The eggs get replaced quickly and there is always enough sausages and bacon to go around. The coffee is fresh an gets replaced quickly. I would recommend this pub for its breakfast and in fact got lunch and dinner too.

Came by last night for a bite to eat with my friend who is vegan, instead of getting the normal boring choices and a menu shoved in our face we actually were personally shown the choices by our waitress Lisa who explain the options to us. She was especially informative and we were delighted with the choices, just want to... More

We have visited a number of times over the years. Always receive a warm welcome from staff and get seated in reasonable time. It's a popular venue so at peak time you might have to wait 20-30mins but that usually isn't a problem for us and worth it. Food options are fantastic with several meat options and plenty of fresh...

We booked a table for 6 for Fri 17th evening, and were pleased to be seated at a circular table so all could join the same conversation. There was a queue for the carvery but it moved along quite quickly, and there was a good choice of pork, gammon, turkey or beef. I chose the pork, which was tender and... More

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