The juiciest hand-carved meats with all the trimmings take pride of place at Toby Carvery Stanway, every day of the week. This family-friendly spot has special menus for the kids, as well as a decadent pudding selection for afters.
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 Colchester 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.
Championing the Sunday roast in comfy, laid-back surroundings, Toby Carvery Stanway is 10 minutes' drive from Colchester Rail Station.

We do feel that the portion of meat is now very thin and small in quantity. I also felt the food was not hot before we even sat down with our plates. In fact the serving spoons were hotter than the food. A bit disappointing

Excellent food and good value, but let down by service/ cleanliness.. Waitress on cleaning nearby tables, wiped the crumbs very deliberately on the floor… then continued table clearing rather than taking our order, didnt offrr alernatives to the roast… so different from the good attention we usually get.

Sorry to say the meal was the worst l have had for a long time all the food was dried and when we told the cook he just looked at me and smile. Not once did a waitress come a ask if we were ok or if we wanted a drink. And when we tried to complain was told the manager was busy

Reception and waiting staff excellent. If you ran a competition for the carvery who could slice the thinnest meat, I think these premises would win. Apart from this the main meal was excellent. My wife chose the crumble which she described as "really nice". My choice was the Etoni Mess, whilst pleasant it certainly did not match my purchased from other restaurants.
My only real criticism of the services was the number of time customers were queueing at the carvery with no one to serve them. At one time there were 6-8 in the queue. I saw members of the waiting staff at least four times calling into the kitchen for staff to come out. Each time two members of staff in "Chef style" clothing would come out then return to the kitchen when the customers had been served, waiting to be called out again, with customers left waiting.
