A huge British pub with an extensive, lush green lawn for al fresco dining, Toby Carvery Runwell offers up a selection of tender British roasts with all the trimmings throughout the week.

Featuring classic British roasts every day of the week, the Toby Carvery menu is renowned for its crowd-pleasing selection. Choose from juicy, slow-cooked meats, seasonal vegetables and hand-ruffled potatoes (with each one checked to make sure it’s gorgeously crispy). Tempting alternatives at this Toby Carvery in Essex include allotment pie, and salmon with coriander and lime, while a varied vegetarian range includes the broccoli & brie parcel.

Old-school puddings are always on offer at Toby Carvery pubs, with famous signature crumbles served alongside chocolate & cherry torte, and baked vanilla cheesecake. The drinks list features beers, ciders, wines and soft drinks, and full-works, all-you-can-eat breakfasts are served each day.

A great spot for al fresco dining when the weather allows, Toby Carvery Runwell is a 4-minute drive from Battlesbridge Rail Station.

    My only comment would be that tables for two are squeezed to close and into the dark corners. No consideration for these tables.
    I visit here every week and would have the same comments.
    Reception , waiting and serving staff all very good as usual
