Took my dad out for lunch for the first time in 8weeks sinces hes been unwell. We popped into the Toby as its 5 mins down the road from the care home he is staying in. Brilliant service, although we did wait a good 10mins for a very charming young man to take our orders. Food was all over the... More

The Mrs and I bought a Groupon voucher for two, I must say the food was above average. Really did enjoy the fact, that we had refillable soft drinks as well. However, they were so understaffed it was ridiculous. Poor employees were working their hearts off. It was so frantic, and the majority of people within the establishment were immensely... More

Went here yesterday and bitterly disappointed! The place was disgusting with food all over the floor and counter. I even had to tell the staff to clear it up and was told it was the chefs responsibility, they couldn't see the mess from their side of the counter. Most of the staff uniforms were fifthly including the chefs who looked... More

Arrived at Toby's today at 11.30 am as per website to have lunch - their food is always amazing and we love their breakfast and lunch/dinner but the service is bad. As we walked in we could see 2 staff members - one cleaning and one behind carvery putting out food. The lady who was cleaning told us that they... More

Usually a good place to go for a roast, however today was a disappointment. The food was awful. Lack of vegetables, lumpy gravy and fatty meats. The restaurants cleanliness is appalling. Dirty plates outside, that we're still there when we left. The food service area was dirty, floor and sides. I understand that sometimes it's too busy to clean but... More

Nothing to do with the food because as usual that was fantastic and didn't disappoint. However whilst enjoying my delicious lunch, my friend and I were unfortunate enough to over hear a conversation with Brendan the pot wash and who I believe is your assistant manager. The conversation revolved around Brenda's work station cleanliness and how he hadn't tidied up... More
