Very nice carvery, we booked a table and were seated promptly, staff were friendly and helpful, food was cooked well and it was nice to see the person saving the carvery was friendly to the children he served in front of us.

This place is the worst restaurant I've ever visited. I stood waiting for my 5 year old child for 20 minutes for a table before I sat on a table at my own accord to be told to get off and wait by a woman who then ,she sat a couple at that same table who were waiting behind me... More

I have no idea how to call the place, so food massacre is the good name. Lots of people and ready food from microwave. Not good

We have always rated the Toby carvery quite highly, not just for the food but the service. Admittedly the last few times we have been here we have been slightly disappointed so we haven't been for a while. Tonight we brought our children here for an easy tea and wish we hadn't bothered. The table was sticky, the beef was... More

last wednesday I really enjoyed my visit for lunch,a lthough by myself. there were not many children in, although half-term (so not too noisy). I chose the turkey carvery (I'd had beef the week before and found it rather fatty / grissly) with a bit of gammon. MANY choices of vegetables, whatever you want. I usually decline tho offer of...

Visited here on the way home from Plymouth, and it was excellent. Had the carvery, which was superb with great choices of meat and veg, then the really nice dessert choices. Excellent overall. Highly recommended

Although we had booked and the restaurant was extra extremely quiet it took the waitress 15 minutes to show us to our table. Chef serving carvery was polite but the slow and unprofessional waitress service let Toby down. The waitress 'lady' with auburn hair pushed past us and made a rude comment as we left the restaurant. Shame for was... More

This place has to be one of the busyiest places of a Sunday. Once you try there carvery you know why. Fresh vegetables not frozen good cuts of meat and plenty to go round. If I had a fault it would be the staff can appear a little stressed sometimes and this then reflects on the service you receive not... More

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