Decent pub food but nothing special. Garlic bread nice. Chips average and quality of chicken could be better.

I had a delicious lunch today at The Toby. The starter of natural smoked haddock with wilted spinach was perfect. The sea food spaghetti was loaded with an incredible amount prawns and fish perfectly cooked. The staff are very attentive and the views of the moors are amazing.

We were with a small party for an evening meal and were very well looked after. Despite there being ten of us we all got served together and the food was equally as good as if we had just been a couple. The menu tends to lean towards the Italian but other cuisine was offered and just as well prepared... More

We recently visited this lovely restaurant which is surrounded by stunning views of the countryside. We ate in the stunning high ceiling conservatory, and was served varying dishes including; garlic pizza bread, hanging roasted meats, full roast dinner and lots more scrummy food. We didn't get to eat a dessert as we were so full from our meal. The highlight... More

We are a family run restaurant and pub. Beautifully located in the Broadhead Valley with panoramic views across the West Pennine Moors, we have been cooking here since 1987. We pride ourselves on the quality of our food which is made fresh everyday. Our dough is made by hand and baked daily for the freshest bread. Our meats and fish are sourced locally to ensure great flavour in their freshness.
