History

Toby Carvery as a brand was founded as part of Bass Charrington in 1985. The parent company subsequently rebranded as Six Continents plc, before the former Bass pub estate was spun off into Mitchells & Butlers. [2] The chain was previously known as "Toby Pub and Carvery", but it was rebranded, removing the pub part of the name.

As well as carvery meat, the chain offers vegetarian and vegan food [3] and fish main courses. A breakfast menu is available at some sites. [4]
