We booked our table on line which was really easy to do and were seated really quickly when we arrived at the restaurant. There was a good choice of meat and vegetables and we all ate well. The bill was really reasonable aso so will book to come back when we are in the area next.

This is the worst branch of the Toby Carvery I have been to. The food was ice cold. The gammon I was given was all fat and when I commented on how small the portion of meat I was given was, given 50% of it was pure white fat, the kid behind the counter, the 'carver', told me that that... More

It's a Toby carvery so you know what you're getting. Not enough staff so sometimes quite a wait for drinks etc but the carvery itself is good, hot & cheap. Always busy at peak lunch & dinner times. Remember to pay in the car park!

Visited with 8 friends and got off to a bad start. I had a voucher but head office had not told the restaurant how to accept it. 20 minutes later the very helpful duty manager managed to sort it all out. That sorted, the breakfast was very tasty although the absence of hash browns was disappointing. Roxy was attentive and... More

Nice that you can book here now. Booked for two Sundays in a row. Both meals were nice but one visit there was no cauliflower cheese which was a but disappointing. We love cauliflower cheese!

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