Had a lovely Sunday roast dinner with turkey and pork. Roast vegetables were delicious as well as the Yorkshire pudding. You can top up your sides as well and there's a selection of sauces to choose from. Desserts are amazing. Highly recommend. Very pleasant experience...More

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