    Carvery food was ok, My choice of pork and beef were good although I was a little perturbed that as meat was being sliced the meat that fell off the serving platter onto the surrounding area surface was picked up by the server and put un to the plate?, The assortment of veg available was good but all such a bit of a mess since they were in need of replenishing. the lady behind me complained. Plates were cold so food didn't remain warm for long enough which was a shame, Pudding was good and saved the day

    We did have a good meal at Toby but unfortunately the service was poor When we arrived the girl we saw had a very big queue to contend with and as if this wasn’t enough was called to the bar leaving us waiting for another 10 minutes I left the queue and got help from another waitress who was also rushed off her feet but she was able to get a table for us All the staff where doing their best but not enough cover We had booked on line which I did show when I arrived but even this was not recorded So sorry to find it like this as we always have a lovely meal

    My granddaughters and I booked a table. We received a friendly greeting on arrival. Unfortunately the table we were given was near the main door and it was very chilly. We asked to be moved. The waitress very helpful and quickly found us another table which was fine. The food was lovely and the service was swift. Will definitely go back.

    Good layout to the restaurant. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Excellent layout of the food for the carvery. All food prepared to a high standard. Unfortunately we were sat at a table close to the carvery and the kitchen doors which was noisy and made conversation difficult. We asked for another table, but the restaurant was ver busy as it was a weekend.

    I found the staff very helpful as I have a walking stickand carnt carry my food to the table, food was excellent as ever, my only concerns are they seem to have more tables so it felt crampt you were having to disturb diners to get to your table and people were queuing by the side of tables where people were eating, very off putting,some customers near us said they wouldn't be going back .xxx

    When it was booked i requested a table next to a window which we did not get. There was a table next to a window empty but told we could not have it because it was already booked, not sure if they requested a table next to the window so why ask if we have any requests if it’s ignored.

    The lady who took us to our table was lovely and very polite. We were seated as soon as we arrived, no waiting. The lady who looked after us at the table was also lovely and very pleasant and helpful. The gentleman at the Carvery was very accommodating and entered in conversation with us. All in all a lovely meal at The Water Mill

    Carvery is great value for money for a family Sunday lunch! Lots of veg to choose from and a good selection of meals. Particular highlights are the Yorkshire puddings and mashed potatoes!
