Called in for breakfast before visit to the zoo!! Staff very abrupt and unpleasant Only really interested in hotel customers Food wasn't replenished very often and what was on display had obviously been siting there for a long time!

Had lunch here ,I had the vegetarian carvers which was okay. My husband and sister had soup and sandwiches, the soup was lovely but the sandwich was very strange as it came with Yorkshire pudding and gravy and roast potatoes. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Lewis served us at the bar and looked as if he couldn't be bothered to serve us and it was a hassle to deal with my dad who is hard of hearing. His whole attitude lacked the usual good customer service that we have had previously from other Toby Carvery's and is very disappointing. If I had been his employer... More

Staying at the Innkeepers Lodge next door we didn't really know the area. Carvery is reasonable value and adequate for a family meal. Staff friendly and helpful. Bit disappointed with the meat but plenty of other food to go with it.

What's not to like - a Sunday roast on any day of the week. Nice selection of roast meats and lots of lovely vegetables. All piping hot with plenty of gravy as well. It's self service for all the veg, so you can have as much or as little as you want. Excellent value for money too.

Description
Welcome to the Toby Carvery Edinburgh West. When it comes to roast dinners, we really know our stuff. Every day our chefs lay on a feast of tender, hand-carved meats with all the trimmings – including towering Yorkshire puds, golden roasties with all those lovely little crunchy bits, and plenty of freshly prepared veg, all crowned with proper gravy. So it's no wonder we're Edinburgh’s favourite carvery restaurant. Drop by and you'll find lots more on offer, including cooked breakfasts and tasty specials.
