Toby Carvery Stops Diners Filling Own Plates As Part Of New Rules From Monday

Toby Carvery has revealed a number of changes diners can expect when restaurants reopen for indoor service on Monday 17 May, in line with government restrictions on eating out.

This includes a different system for those wanting to pile up their plate with roast dinner staples.

Yup, while people will be used to striding up to the counter to help themselves to a mountain of food, from Monday they will have their meal served up to them by a team member, after ordering at their table.

Outlining the changes to LADbible, a statement from Mitchells and Butlers said: "Although there will be table service in the restaurants (this means no ordering from the bar), guests can still visit the deck to personalise their plates.

"However one of the team will be adding items onto their plates for them from the carving deck.

"This is in line with the Government guidance we are having to follow."

Other steps include compulsory Test and Trace for both indoor and outdoor service, with all guests required to check in, either via the Test and Trace app or by sharing details with a host upon entry.

Face coverings must also be worn when people are moving around the restaurants, and social distancing must be adhered to.

Mitchells and Butlers said: "All of our Toby Carvery restaurants are Covid-secure and will be operating under the same extensive cleaning and hygiene practices we successfully introduced last year."

The company added: "We'll continue to keep our carveries safe with social distancing measures in the restaurant and at the carvery deck.

"In line with the Government initiative, all team members are being encouraged to take part in the lateral flow testing process twice a week."

On the Toby Carvery website, it is also advised to book ahead where possible.

It explains: "Whilst we will always try and accommodate walk ins, due to social distancing measures this may not always be possible, or may incur a long wait.

"We strongly recommend for your own convenience that you book ahead.

"We take bookings on the day so even if it's a last-minute treat it's worth booking ahead."

Good to know.
