Toby Carvery is a British carvery chain brand owned and operated by Mitchells and Butlers. The brand has been in operation for over 30 years. The chain of 150 restaurants serves over 21 Million meals a year and their slogan is "HOME OF THE ROAST"[1]

Sites typically open at 7am, serving breakfast until 11am (10:30am Sunday) and then carvery from 11:30am until 10pm.[2]

The brand has been expanded with the addition of a sandwich chain, under the name, Toby Carvery Sandwich Express.[3]

The branch at Nottingham Road, Chaddesden, Derby received a 0 star rating when it had a food hygiene inspection by Derby City Council, calling for urgent improvement,[4] and The Crook Log Public House in Kent received 1 star.[5] The company was fined £15,000 for poor hygiene standards at the Enderby branch.[6]

(Note: the Branch at Nottingham Road, Chaddesden, Derby received a 5-star rating when it had a food hygiene inspection in 2014)[7]

When entering the carvery, you are greeted and either shown to your table or told to wait. The carver will ask you if you want a Yorkshire Pudding and then ask you for your meat. There are 4 choices: beef, gammon, turkey and pork. There are also a wide variety of vegetables and gravy. Toby Carvery have the famous 'bottomless custard jug' for their desserts along with ice cream and other choices. They also offer refillable soft drinks


Toby Carvery restaurants were origonally designed to the style of traditional english pubs, however in recent years they have started to build brand new restaurants where the image is a lot more modern and all older pubs are getting refurbishments too. Restaurants are often found alongside Hotels such as Holiday Inn Express, Travelodge and Premier Inn at motorway junctions or other major A Roads throughout the UK from Perth to the far south of England. Toby has recently started opening restaurants on high streets and in shopping centre's.
