Vegetables cold, potatoes flavourless but beef very good not tough or chewy excellent pork crackling and stuffing. Drinks order slow halfway through dinner before drinks arrived. I don’t think I will return

Excellent service and excellent food. Interior is well-worn as on our previous visit, so expected, but we weren't expecting chips on the crockery. From a hygiene point of view, chipped crockery should be discarded and not presented to customers. Please see the photo for illustration.

My daughter (aged 10) suggested we go for a Toby carvery whilst on holiday, I reluctantly agreed as we usually stay well clear of our local Toby carvery in the West Midlands due to miserable staff, unappetising food and a dreary interior. Wow what can...More

Here at Toby Carvery Lympstone, we believe there's only one way to do our beloved British roast – and that's properly. Every spud is checked by hand and ruffled for extra crunch. All of our meat is slow-cooked and basted to succulent perfection. And our Yorkshires are freshly made in our kitchens and served crisp, fluffy and piping-hot to your plate. That's what makes us the home of the roast.
