Lincoln Toby Carvery plans to reopen in October

Four months after everyone else

Toby Carvery is planning to reopen its Lincoln restaurant in early October after several months of closure due to the coronavirus lockdown and a refurb that is yet to take place.

Toby Carvery on St Mark’s Square prepared to close on March 23 for a full refurbishment inside, but the coronavirus lockdown meant it has been closed for a lot longer than planned.

The restaurant chain has reopened most of its sites since the lockdown restrictions were lifted. However, a small number, including Lincoln, are yet to reopen.

Customers will be encouraged to pre-book and this is limited to groups of up to eight people.

Roast meats, vegetables and accompaniments will be served by staff from the carvery deck. Any unlimited soft drink refills will also be served to your table by waiters.

A Toby Carvery spokesperson said: “We have reopened the majority of our restaurants since lockdown restrictions were lifted, however a small number are still yet to reopen.

“The decision not to immediately reopen these restaurants has been made on a site by site basis, taking into account various factors including business layout and expected footfall.

“A decision on when to reopen Toby Carvery Lincoln remains under review, however we are currently planning to reopen the restaurant in early October.”
