Here at Toby Carvery Downlands, we believe there's only one way to do our beloved British roast – and that's properly. Every spud is checked by hand and ruffled for extra crunch. All of our meat is slow-cooked and basted to succulent perfection. And our Yorkshires are freshly made in our kitchens and served crisp, fluffy and piping-hot to your plate. That's what makes us the home of the roast.

EXCELLENT MEAL AS USUAL, BUT SORRY THERE WERE NO ROASTED PARSNIPS WITH THE CARVERY!

WHAT WONDERFUL VALUE! AND A WAITRESS WHO WAS PATIENT WITH SENIOR CITIZENS!

Open Table Booking

I booked a table online for Downlands Worthing, but when we got there the guy couldn't find my booking for 7pm. We then had a wait whilst he tried to find it. This had been confirmed on my laptop at home before we left for Downlands. We were then allowed through but I suspect because a queue forming behind us, rather than him finding our booking. Otherwise, meal good and service.

Downlands was busy. Long ques for carvery so difficult to navigate back to my seat as people blocking way. Service delayed as we had to wait for clean plates and seemed as of no member of staff had responsibility for this. Food was good as always once you got it. Arrived at 6.45. Sat down to eat at 7.45.

Very good value and plentiful. They can be a bit tight with the meat sometimes and on this visit a lot of the food had run out and not been replaced but it was rectified after a few minutes.
Can't really complain for the price paid it is a good deal.

Great value for money! Service was a bit slow but it does get very busy. Advisable to book. Can't complain due to the incredible value for good hearty food.

Carvery is best standard I have found at any price. Both meat and vegetables are always fresh and hot. Good choice of non-carvery meals too. Service can be a little slow if the restaurant is busy but is always very friendly.
