Good choice as are all Toby Carverys. Clean and tidy with friendly staff. As usual expect children to be running around but an all round pleasant atmosphere with good hot food!

Pleasant carvery meal in a clean pleasant atmosphere. The restaurant staff were a bit disinterested. One was on her mobile phone rather than paying interest to customer needs. It didn't spoil the meal but was a small downside.More

Thank you so much for the positive review! I hope that the mobile phone you were referring to was our "I-serves" which are iPods that the waitresses use to put orders on. I sincerely hope that they were not on their mobile phones whilst working....More

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.
