Vegetarian options were limited, and I was dissapointed by the lack of hashbrowns! The coffee was 'nescafe sachets' rather than 'fresh' coffee. But otherwise OK.

We took our elderly mother here today, it was a relaxed and wonderful tasting Carvery (love Yorkshire Pudding). Everything was perfect for the mains. The pudding was a little more of a disappointment as the Eaton Mess was a little average and the kids put together was a little messy (and alot of fun) Great time, good food, very good... More

We came first time to this place and probably the last one. It was family of 3 type of dinning with 5 year old. We were seated at set table after booking reservation online. Showing up without reservation would not work, as it was quite busy around 12:45 and there were few customers turned down. Coming back to food itself... More

Pretty bad really. Thought I would try as they are promoting a January vegan menu which on paper looked good. Reality was only one of the five vegan options on the menu was available and waitress started offering blue cheese options as alternative. As we spent an hour driving here that wasn't great. The waitress had a real bad attitude... More

If like me, you are staying at the Primer inn next door my advice is when you come out of the hotel turn left from the car park and walk 2 mins to the hotel next door. I walk into the Toby and was met by what can only be described as "Trashed". Every table dirty, members of staff with... More

Went for meal out in goup of 6. Table was laid out for us on our arrival. Food was good for value and tasty. However the service was a bit of a let down as we had to wait for our orders to taken etc. The waitress was very apologetic.

Currently staying at the Premier Inn next door. We popped in for a drink at 5pm and had to clear our own table. Lots of staff but all stood around chatting. Went elsewhere for a meal as this put us off. Popped back at 10.35pm on Saturday for a nightcap but the doors were locked. Only left a 1 star... More

We found the carvery the perfect solution to a large, informal family gathering. Catering for all preferences and tastes and very reasonably priced. It's best to book in advance, as it is very popular. The roast Smorgasbord meat is carved as required and generous portions given. All the accompaniments are as traditional as you prefer or as you favour; so... More

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