Quick service at the till , no queue to get the buffet breakfast , sausages were a bit over cooked, tinned tomatoes available which a lot of places don't do and well stocked. All in all a good breakfast

Perfect place to go for Sunday Roast....which you can have every day of the week. It was a busy evening but we didn't have long to wait til a table was ready for us. Great service from waitress and lovely charming chef dishing out the meats! Good choice of veg and different types of potatoes. Would recommend this restaurant.

We arrive for breakfast and we're told it would close in 10 minutes. The 'all you can eat' offer was not explained to us so therefore, we had food that was not edible due to the level of salt and was swimming in fat. We had added a drink to the price of the meal which was supposed to be... More

Dear Jarrard C, Thank you for your review. First off I would like to apologise for the standard that it seems you encountered on your visit, that for me is disappointing and I will feed it back to the team. In regards to the 'all you can eat' offer, we run from 7am up until 11am (10:30am on a Sunday).... More

Only visited here as was staying in the travelodge next door. The carvery itself was cheap and cheerful as you would expect, but don't order any of the side orders/starters. They were not great and not worth the extra! Also - not sure about the cat walking through at one point in the evening...

If staying for a meal don't park in the car park. Stayed for 3 hours 2 minutes and got fined £130. Not good for catch ups!

Thank Louisetrippy

Hi Louise, We are sorry that you were fined on your last visit with us. It does clearly state however that there is a 3 hour limit in this car park. No less than 7 signs on your way into the Carvery state that if you want to extend your stay, then speak to a duty manager who will be... More

Welcome to the Toby Carvery Harlow. 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.
