Better than my previous visit last year. Staff were very good, food was excellent and vegetables fine with some nice choices like leeks and red cabbage. Courgette soup was tasty but served warm rather than hot. Another problem was that although it was only 7.30...More

If your ok with waiting and have the patience of a saint you will be good here, queue for the carvery with one chef on a Sunday afternoon probably wasn't the best idea, food was good and upgrade to the king plate was worth it,

After walking around the zoo all afternoon - only to discover the place we had decided to eat at was fully booked - we entered the Toby Carvery to find a warm welcome and something for everyone x

We were in Edinburgh for a sporting event. Came here first with a large group of friends. It's years since we have tried a Toby, but we were really pleasantly surprises by the restaurant. Was amazed to find such a good selection of vegan options...More

Had lunch here ,I had the vegetarian carvers which was okay. My husband and sister had soup and sandwiches, the soup was lovely but the sandwich was very strange as it came with Yorkshire pudding and gravy and roast potatoes. Staff were friendly and helpful.

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