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

“Ok, no problems”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

3 of us visited, fancied a roast and not wishing to cook on the day. Had a voucher which was for £6.50 for 2 course, so had roast followed by ice cream sundae.
We got there at 2pm, very much avoiding that awful 12o clock Q. It was quiet, not packed and considering 1/2 term not full of noisy kids running about(which we would expect to be fair in 1/2 term). I had the nut roast, which is tasty. Hubby had all different meats and son gammon, there were no complaints. The roast potatoes were nice, as last time they were not really up to much. Left feeling full and relatively cheap considering I couldn't face cooking a roast 2 days later.

“Breakfast”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Had my first all you can eat breakfast at this Toby carvery. It certainly was all you could eat and plenty of toast and teas and coffees to. The place was packed but this is not surprising as it is good value for money .......will certainly be doing this again.

“Went on a recommendation!”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

We called into the Friary at 6 pm on a Saturday evening - not a good time as the place was heaving. Decided not to queue as it was also very noisy. Visited Christopher's Carvery at Blunsdon House Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the food, friendly service and pleasant atmosphere.

“Good food”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 via mobile

A group of 5 friends went on a busy Sunday. Service from the chef team was great and all the food items were stocked and we didn't have to wait long. Front of house team seem extremely busy but the food was very good.
