For over 10 years I have been going to what used to be Park Place and is now the Toby Carvery in Mitcham. For those who don’t know Toby Carvery is a restaurant/pub type setting where you can enjoy a buffet style roast dinner with everything you could possible want all regularly restocked and 4 different types of meat (beef, pork, gammon, chicken) carved right in front of you.
As it was Christmas day they changed up the menu a bit by having even more on offer including pigs in blankets and 2 types of stuffing but essentially the meal was the same as what you could normally get their not that that’s a bad thing. While I enjoyed the smoked salmon starter I felt that the main meal was too big for me to handle and I struggled to finish the chocolate cheesecake although this was my fault as you can have as much or as little of the roast as you want.
During the meal we got to pull crackers with the usual mediocre jokes and prizes inside them including a water pistol which I have been very tempted to use on the cats but have refrained from doing so yet. The chocolate cheesecake was very nice and the slices were big, as I got to the end I found the taste to be a little too sickly even with the raspberries and cream to help balance it.
This was a great Christmas lunch and although you don’t get too much more than you would usually get from the Toby Carvery it’s well worth the price just for the convenience factor alone, and with the 20% off voucher I got at the end of the meal i’ll be sure to come back soon.
