Toby Carvery Meals are Great Value for Money
Author Name: Jane
Advantages: Good food at great price.
I aways go the Toby Carvery in Lower Earley, Reading. Service is always excellent, food piping hot and a very good selection of meat - beef, turkey, gammon, pork, and fresh vegetables - usually roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, parsnips, carrrots, peas, broccoli, cauliflower cheese as well as an enormous yorkshire pudding. I have eaten other 'value' meals at other pubs but Toby carvery meals, in my opinion, beat them hands down in terms of what you actually get for your money. This is because you help yourself to as much veg as you like from the carvery counter instead of being served just a couple of potatoes and a few peas/carrots, and you can even go back for seconds! Taking advantage of their two for £10 meal vouchers in the week makes it an even better deal. I have read someone's review about the meals being tasteless and unseasoned. I totally disagree with that. It is really good to be able to eat meals that have not been overdosed with salt which ruins the flavour....and, if you do want to up the amount of seasoning, just add it yourself. Just can't see the problem there! All in all, a real fortnightly treat and I'm already looking forward to my next meal!
Summary: A real treat!
