We went for dinner in this pub and have to say it was awful. They had work men working round the food area there were no menus on the table but it turns out the only main meal you can have is a carvery. When we eventually got served the veg was very dry and we choose some mash but... More

Visited for the first time today. Love the fact that once seated you can eat first and pay later. It was busy but no real queueing. The food was both hot and delcious. Plenty of choice of veg and gravy and sauces etc. Unlimited soft drinks are a bonus. The desserts do not disappoint either and very generous portion sizes.... More

Good evening, Thank you kindly for taking time to leave a review. I'm sincerely sorry your table was not ready for when you arrived. We do get very busy, however your table should have been ready for you on arrival. You should have received your drink order sooner also. Regarding queuing for the carvery - owing to the type of...

First visit was carvery which we enjoyed typical carvery. 2nd visit 1 week later to try the breakfast this visit not as good coffee was cold and kept running out of different items so had to go back when things were replenished, would have been better if we could get everything in one go.

This carvery was my choice for lunch, for myself and eight other family members. I was very much looking forward to it. We arrived just after 12.30 without any reservation. The female host? asked if I'd booked, to which I said 'no'. She looked fairly disgusted and put out. Told me there was a 9 in and a 17, for... More

We visited for a birthday meal and were shown to a table, where our drinks order was taken. We ordered four carveries and one salmon fillet, which would have to be cooked separately, and so we waited... When we got too hungry we asked one of the waitresses where the salmon was and she said 'oh it's been brought out,... More

Must say I have never had such good service as I did today 10/02/17 at Toby Watergate. The Waitress Sharon could not do enough for us. Explained how the breakfast process worked and from there was simply amazing. Running around trying to please everybody.

Met up with friends we haven't seen for quite a while and the fact that the Toby was just off the M61 was a real advantage. We all had a carvery meal and we were served by Jenn, who couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Her general happy attitude made the visit even more pleasant than just meeting our... More

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