    Booked for 3.30. Wasn't seated until gone 4. Queued for over 15 mins for food. Standing in a baking hot place with loads of people waiting with my autistic child wasn't fun.

    I've always enjoyed Toby Carvery, this evening's booking was very busy and we were told that there would be a 20 minutes delay but we did check in 15 early so we didn't mind to wait! The fella behind the bar was great, very talkative and the servers were lovely. The meal took a while to get but again they were so busy I'm not complaining about that either, the dessert was delicious! I'd recommend Toby Carvery any day

    Our server, Stef, was lovely and kind. Asked if we wanted a drink before we even sat down, so we didn’t even have to wait. Food was delicious, we hadn’t been in so long and it’s just as we remembered it.

    Great service considering it was extremely busy. Beef bit dry and overcooked for my taste but overall good was really nice, staff were quick with requests even though they were clearly under pressure

    Good food but has a bit of a cafe atmosphere, lots of people in work clothes eating and leaving. Brilliant service from the table staff.........

    The staff were helpful and Freindly, it was the quality of the meat and portion sizes that were disappointing. My 10 year old daughter has a child’s plate and she asked for turkey, only turkey no other meat . He served her two small thin half slices. When I asked if she could have more meat please he advised that was a child’s portion. However if she has asked for Porth, turkey and beef she would have received more meat. My husband had to return his plate to ask for the beef to be changed as it was full of fat and not lean as you would expect in a roast. Very dissatisfied

    This was my 3rd visit to Toby in recent weeks and as was with my previous 2 visits they did not disappoint. The food was again of excellent quality & value for money. The service was again excellent in particular from Gemma who also served me on my previous 2 visits . She has a bubbly personality & gives her service ‘with a smile’. All in another excellent visit and I shall certainly return to the Romford Toby.

    I have yet to be disappointed when dining at the Toby. The food and surroundings are perfect. I would go there again with no hesitation. My friends and I have not met up since the virus. We will meet again at this venue. Very soon.

    First visit we had today to Toby Carvery in Romford since the lockdown and food and service quality was excellent.

    I can understand that with the restrictions due to COVID that things have become stressful to serve customers But customers should be allowed to serve them selfs as long as they are wearing gloves and a face mask. The poor chef behind the counter had to serve us and then take our plate to the table making it a longer time for other customers being served as there wasn’t that many staff behind the counter. Normally I would give five stars/high ratings but it took over half hour to be served. So many the company needs to look into making the process quicker for customers and easier for staff

    Restaurant is generally following covid restrictions, however glass salt and pepper cellars were put on table, not the individual sachets, as advised.

    On a hot day the restaurant was pleasantly cool and well ventilated. Every effort was made to make the experience Covid secure. The staff were helpful, pleasant and courteous.

    The food was very disappointing and cold, had to wait ages as there was only one person serving and it wasn’t until my husband said something then another person came to help. Had to ask three different people just to get a drink and two people for ketchup so I afraid we won’t be going back again.
