    Booked ahead, but not busy as a week day. Seated but then able togo straight up for the carvary, this saved so much waiting time. Took a while to get served drinks. Food was lovely.

    very good service from Salim, the only thing was the beef was very hard / tuff and difficult to cut

    This is a typical institutional meal experience. The veg was cold, unappealing and tastless. The meat and roast potatoes were good but the Yorkshire puddings take up 50% of the plate, presumably to limit what else you can fit on the plate. The stuffing was a congealed solid lump of grey stodge. Pigs in blankets were good but extra. It was a number of years since I had been to a Toby, and I was hoping in vain, that standards had improved. It will be a number of years before I try again!

    Hi Me and Friend went at lunchtime today, I thought it was a good experience and for a Sunday it was fairly quiet and we were well and quickly served but I was though a bit disappointed with the Beef although the turkey and the Veg was fine Thank you Graham Fowler

    Toby is always ok, but our waitress was so lovely it made it a great lunch. She went out of her way to be helpful and very attentive without hovering

    Roast beef was very gristle, potatoes were very flat and not crispy, they did not taste like freshly roasted potatoes. It was booked for 2:30pm so not rushed off their feet. Had coffee afterwards and no teaspoons available to stir with.

    Returned for the third time this year but at at later time of 2pm Carvery very sparse unable to order prawns, Guiness or beer (other than bottled pale ale),no sticky toffee pudding and only one soda flavour available. Apparently "supply issues" Very disappointed and spoilt a celebration treat.

    We booked for 2pm but had to alter it yesterday to 1pm - no problem. Straight in after entering our registration no. in screen./ Shown to our table, took our drinks order straight away. No queues, food was hot, a variety of potatoes and vegetables. I loved the chef carving because he gave me lots of turkey, my oh and friend enjoyed their amount of meat as well..I must admit I have never had a bad meal there

    We found this visit quite disappointing, they had problems with the ceiling ? and were limiting people, the carvery had run out of some of the meats and we were rushed through as though they didn't really want us there, the veggies were very luke warm, not very inviting at all. It was my Husband's birthday which made it even more disappointing.

    The Aldenham Toby is a place I visit often. Always good service . The food is very good. Although this time the veggies were a bit limited. Not so varied. But .... it didn’t spoil my visit !

    I have dined at the carvery many times and have not been as disappointed as I was on Monday The lamb was so overcooked and when I was served it was at the end and dry. The potatoes were stone cold and all together it was a very disappointing meal Being it was on Monday I thought the meat would be freshly cooked.

    We had a lovely meal. Hot and plenty of meat. Could have had a bigger selection of vegetables....missed parsnips! One of our puddings was disappointing, not enough chocolate brownie and far too much cream. Our young male waiter was very attentive and provided an excellent service

  • Mahendra C.1 review

    Attitude of staff useless. Refused us a table near the Windows saying the tables were reserved despite us having booked ourselves online. All night being there nobody came on those tables. I know the staff did not want to use that area. When asked for mustard they said they had none. The ambience is too dark and needs renovation all inside including lighting.

    There was no queue so that was good. Seated, ordered drinks. Then went to choose carvery. Food was nice and hot, looked good and more importantly I had loads of turkey. My husband and my friend both had the beef which was just the way they liked it. The restaurant seemed quiet, but most people were scoffing their food. Great to meet up, food good, place was quiet enough to hear yourself speak. Going again in a few weeks

    The staff were excellent and explained everything. Food was delicious. Not sure the thought process of getting staff to carry your plate to the table from a COVID point of view but hey I can’t knock it. First time back after a long time and was impressed. Only minute detail is the tables were sticky but as I said a minute detail.

    The Toby Carvery has always been good, it seems strange to have your meal that you select carried by your waitress to the table. I understand it's social distance. But we all enjoyed our meals and scraped our plates clean

    The turkey and gammon were good. The rest of the food was soggy and bland . It all just tasted the same. Parsnips were soggy mess. The gravey was barely warm making the rest of the food just warm too. Treacle desert with custard. Just a cheap sponge cake in 2 bits must have been a teaspoon of treacle if that and lots of luke warm custard. I would not eat here again. Took a 87 year old friend out for 1st time in 18 months and she was not impressed either. Very disappointed.

    Ques getting longer when going to get meals, but this is also a good sign of the quality of cooking, meats are always tasty, vegetables varied and fresh, waitresses are lovely especially sarah and Kelly on sundays, always smiling
