Really good carvery. Service was quick and decor was fresh. One comment is that the dessert served was too hot and could have been done with a bit of a chill before serving

First time I have been, we normally go to Tobys carvery. We were pleasantly surprised how good your carvery was. I had pork and beef, and my dad had just beef. The beef was a little on the tough side because of the cut of meat but the veg were very good. Not really sure where the best place to park if we come again.

Table service could have been more consistent and quicker as waited ages for main course to be cleared away, which meant we didn't have enough time for puddings. The vegetables were either over or under cooked, like a crunch but not raw or puree. Other than that it was a very nice meal.

Food as usual was excellent. Service just a ittle.off - friendly but sometimes difficult to grab someones attention.. Still probably the best value Sunday lunch in Bedford.

The Sunday Carvery was spot on again to the last one I had. It was also lush that there was a mixed meat looking casserole tray at the end to have also. Only down side was, the Yorkshire puddings weren't that nice. Me and my partner didn't like them. They were over done and didn't really taste like yorkies. Our boys finished them off though.

Value for money was fine. The starters were very nice but the mains werent great. The veggie lasagne wasnt quite cooked through and I didnt like the carrots in it. The carvery was dry and not very nice. The pepperoni pizza was a cheese pizza with some pepperoni slices placed on top as an afterthought...it wasn't a true pepperoni pizza. The staff were nice and very friendly but the food was a let down.

Carvery, deserts and starters were amazing. Staff were great. The salmon salad was disapointing. The sauce on the salmon was very peppery and didn't work with the salad which was wet and made a very sloppy meal.

Family lunch for 6 - we all had the carvery which was plentiful and very tasty with lots of choice. Our table was a not set up on arrival and needed a good wipe over so this would have been better if it had been done before we sat down but it was quickly rectified and then we had good service throughout. We'll be back - definitely!
