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

I went for breakfast last week with my family and had wish i had read reviews before going! This place was dirty, there was food and possibly other gross things splattered on the walls, the food tasted disgusting and cheap, and it seemed like it had been left out for hours before i arrived... everything was crusty and hard! I also wondered why there was nobody else there, but after attempting to eat my food, that became pretty clear why! The manager clearly doesnt read reviews or take on board people’s comments! I would avoid this specific pub at all costs. They give the entire toby chain a bad name

Went for breakfast today with my husband son and grandson. The person in front of me had to move two plates before getting a clean plate and I had to move 5 before i
found a clean plate, all these plates had dried on food absolutely disgusting.
The bacon was black and burnt the eggs were swimming in fat no mushrooms at all the chef bringing the food out was miserable clearly didnt want to be there. I asked for a latte coffee and got a cup half filled with warm coffee the rest was froth we will definatly never go there again.

WOW, all you can eat breakfast. Me and my husband went around 8.45am the place was busy but there were plenty of tables spare. Plenty of car parking, staff were lovely and the place is clean.

The choice is good - bacon, saussage, scrambled egg, fried egg, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, a fried potatoe/onion mix (thats how hubby described it) yorkshire pudding, onion gravy. This was just the hot plate area!. There is an area where you can do white/brown toast and have a variety of jams and butter to use. Plates are warm which i like when having food. As much tea and coffee as you can drink (a little extra cost) it was £13.16 for the 2 of us and well worth it (especially as i didnt have to cook it all).

Should have thought something was wrong with this place when it lacked customers... Not good when you are greeted with poor deco and stains and dirt all over the walls... Breakfast Yorkshire's not up to usual Toby standards, they were rubbery and full of grease with a hard to cut base, burnt sausages, over cooked fried eggs, hard potatoes, many items missing including mushrooms... One place to add to the avoid list... Obviously management don't take notice of negative reviews.

We’ve been to many Toby Carvery pubs for breakfast with the family. This was absolutely horrendous. Yorkshire puds look like they had been there since it opened, the tomatoes had vinegar in them, scrambled egg was powdery, bacon and sausages been standing hours, really awful and not edible. The only thing edible was the beans. If your ever driving past this pub please just keep driving. We should of known when we got in and pub was empty that the food would be crap. Normally Toby breakfasts are really busy, this however was not.
Apart from the food the pub was dirty too.
I’ve only given 1 star as not able to give 0.
