Arrived for breakfast, had to wait to be seated although the place was mostly empty. I had never been to a Toby Carvery before, but no explanation was offered about what to do, when I asked if there were veggie sausages, the staff member said very unenthusiastically that she would see if they had any and how long they would...

Beef and cauliflower cheese 😫 Oh dear! They said they added more cheese recently, although there is no change and the cauliflower is tough and difficult to even cut through. The beef is mainly fat. If only they could fix these two issues. Staff are always polite and helpful.

First time in this carvery would be the last visit. Found a hair on a roast potato which i can forgive but when there is another 2 hairs i think they need to sort it out surely they have a health and safety check before they put food out

A group of four of us were here on a popular Sunday afternoon. Due to the popularity on the day, we had to wait 40 minutes before a table became available. Food similar to most carveries ... not exceptional but provided a good lunch.

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.
