I realise the Toby is a cheap eatery, but would it really hurt the staff to smile, you almost feel unwelcome, it makes a rundown tired looking carvery worse than it need be! Please smile and look interested in your job. Food ok ish!More

Nice carvery, classic toby. Service wasn't particularly great. We were sat in an out of the way window alcove area where we were pretty much forgotten about by our waitress. But service aside the carvery was lovely and hit the spot!More

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.
