Description: Welcome to the Toby Carvery Bathgate Farm. 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 West Lothian's favourite carvery restaurant. Drop by and you'll find lots more on offer, including cooked breakfasts and tasty specials.

Food was amazing. Great selection of food. Amazing Yorkshire puddings and exceptional vegetable selection especially the cauliflower cheese... Its beautiful! Happy server's and very attentive. Easy booking and wasn't over full even though fully booked. Reasonably priced too!

My son is on holiday this week so decided to treat him to breakfast as we don't see a lot of each other. Booked the Toby Carvery in Bathgate and were seen to right away. Told then to help ourselves which is where the problem began. Lifted a plate and it was disgustingly filthy, lifted another and same problem with every single one of the supposedly clean plates, all totally disgusting. Complained and to be fair, they were all taken away and clean ones given. Got back to our table and unwrapped the cutlery and once again my son's was absolutely filthy. It put us right off!
Breakfast itself was enjoyable but there's no excuse nowadays for dirty crockery and cutlery. It's a shame as the Carvery can be really good. A simple thing like checking what people are eating off should be a given.

Hi Dylansgr
Thank you for your comments.
I would like to apologise for your experience this morning. These are not the standards we set for the team and your feedback will be shared with them as such.
I am glad that this was dealt with straight away but should not have happened in the first place.
Thank you for your custom and we hope to see you again in the future.
With kind regards

The beef was both cold and hard to cut into. The turkey meat was cold and a bit tasteless. The biggest problem was that we paid for the option to refill on vegetables and potatoes but the whole buffet including those was taken off without a warning we discovered this when we went back to refill and we were told that it was taken off!

Worst Toby I have ever been too. We were staying Nextdoor at the premier inn and came over for dinner and then breakfast the next day. The Carvery was shocking. We went on a Sunday and wanted lamb and we’re disappointed to find out it has run out. The veg selection was poor and don’t start me on the Yorkshire puddings. The next day breakfast was 10x worse than the Carvery. The food was all dried up, the tatty scones were like bricks and my partners egg was green.
If your staying at the premier book breakfast there before you come. Don’t waste your money at the Toby. May be cheaper but there is a reason for that. Plus kids eat free at the premier inn!

The food was tasty but we felt completely rushed to make our decisions like they were extremely busy but it wasn’t at all.

As this is the first time we have been to Toby Carvery we did have questions and were made to feel like we were completely stupid.

We finished our food and Were waiting for someone to come over to offer another drink etc considering my glass had been sat empty for most of the meal but the waitress was more interested in speaking to the table behind us as they were obviously her friends. We ended up just paying the bill and leaving. Disappointing when you are on holiday and made to feel this way.
