The carvery is one of those places that never changes. They do a cracking roast and there are always so many vegetable choices. No surprises and no disappointments. We were are group of 9 and had phoned ahead, so we're accommodated quickly. A great meal...More

Went in as staying next door. This branch looked run down and in need of a good clean. The servers behind the carvery had no idea about allergens. One server looked quite unhygienic, with a dirty apron and long dirty nails. Plates had greasy finger...More

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

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.
