Popular Gloucester restaurant reopens its doors
By Sophie Ladd | 23rd July 2021
A pub chain in Gloucestershire, Toby Carvery in Highnam has reopened after it was forced shut at the end of last year. The restaurant has been refurbished, a job that took six weeks to complete. Following a significant investment in the restaurant, 10 new jobs have been created for the local area.
On the 23rd December 2020 due to the flash floods in Gloucester, the restaurant had to shut because of significant damage caused, and it has remained closed since.
Located just off the A40, the refreshed Toby Carvery has now resumed serving roasts to diners, welcoming regulars, and new guests to the new look restaurant.
An area in the bar has been created where spaces can be booked. This could be for business meetings or those wanting drinks with friends after a long time apart.
Commenting on the restaurant's new look, general manager, Sarah Marshall, said: "We're so pleased at how brilliant Toby Carvery Highnam looks following the refurbishment. It's been a long six months, and it's great to be able to welcome back team members and guests to the restaurant.
"For many, the great British roast is the ultimate heart-warming food, and we just can't wait to serve the people of Gloucester a traditional dinner in our fresh surroundings. With our specially trained chefs, friendly and attentive team, and our warm and welcoming atmosphere, guests will find their new look Toby Carvery is the perfect place to get together and enjoy a delicious roast dinner."
The restaurant is popular with local residents in Highnam, who are not allowed to build their own drinking establishment due to a covenant placed on the village in the 1980's when many houses were built. The nearest restaurants and pubs near them are the Rodway Hill Golf Club, the Toby Carvery and the Lock Keepers in Over.
