Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had lunch here ,I had the vegetarian carvers which was okay. My husband and sister had soup and sandwiches, the soup was lovely but the sandwich was very strange as it came with Yorkshire pudding and gravy and roast potatoes. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Lewis served us at the bar and looked as if he couldn't be bothered to serve us and it was a hassle to deal with my dad who is hard of hearing. His whole attitude lacked the usual good customer service that we have had previously from other Toby Carvery's and is very disappointing. If I had been his employer... More

Staying at the Innkeepers Lodge next door we didn't really know the area. Carvery is reasonable value and adequate for a family meal. Staff friendly and helpful. Bit disappointed with the meat but plenty of other food to go with it.

What's not to like - a Sunday roast on any day of the week. Nice selection of roast meats and lots of lovely vegetables. All piping hot with plenty of gravy as well. It's self service for all the veg, so you can have as much or as little as you want. Excellent value for money too.

We've been coming here for 11 years and love this place- we live about 5 miles away but consider this our local. Great bar with lovely staff who are the best we've experienced. The carvery is exceptional and an absolute bargain. I'm slavering thinking about it. Good work guys!

We visited for dinner and the 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed what we had. I especially liked the new vegetable dauphinoise! It's mainly self service but the staff we encountered were friendly.

Had a great lunch st the Toby carvery in Edinburgh, St Johns Road. You have the choice of various cuts of meat expertly carved in front of you and oodles of fresh veg and potatoes with gravy and dressings on the side. Very reasonably priced and a very hearty meal. We enjoyed it.

What has happen to the Toby Chain, it's either hot and tasty or cold and sad looking, When these places are busy the side dishes are great, but quiet and you get look warm veg and Potato, Our meet was well done and veg etc look warm, ok its cheap but still should be warm

Stayed here for an overnight stay and ate at the carvery whilst there and then had breakfast next morning. Having ate breakfast here on many occasions, we thought we would try the carvery for dinner as it was convenient while staying there with two young children. The food at the carvery was nothing spectacular, however, it was edible and filled... More

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