“Excellent value for money if you like a carvery”
Review of Robin Hood

Robin Hood
Ranked #108 of 191 Restaurants in Newbury
Cuisines: British
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Newbury can be a quite expensive place to eat, so if you are looking for value for money and enjoy a carvery, the Robin Hood is worth visiting. It's part of the Toby Carvery chain, and as such has four roasts that are carved for customers, and 8 vegetable dishes that are self service. On a busy Friday the restaurant was fully booked, but I was able to eat in the bar instead, carrying my plate round from the main serving area. (There's also a limited bar menu, mainly built round the same roast meats.) The vegetables were good - generally not soggy and overcooked (the cabbage was possibly the best I have had in a carvery), perhaps helped by being so busy, so kept fresh. The only nod to Newbury prices is that it's 30p more than my local Toby carvery.

Access is easy from the A34 Southbound - just take the A338 old road into Newbury, and it's on the left at the first roundabout/lights. This makes it a useful stopover if travelling South from the Midlands, and much better value than using something like Chieveley services.

We thought by four o'clock on a Sunday afternoon the crowds would have gone home but no. We had to wait for twenty minutes in the bar for a table. Worth waiting for, yes. Good, hot food efficiently (self) served. Enough variety and quantity to please anyone. But not a quiet Sunday lunch. Value for money impressive.

Ate here with family and was delighted at the low price of the meal, friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. If you want a filling, convenient and great value roast, this is the place.
