Toby Carvery has released its plan of action for reopening doors to the public this week ahead of the easing of lockdown restrictions amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on July 4.
The popular carvery chain, which has a number of restaurants in Greater Manchester and the North West, has detailed a number of COVID-safe measures which are being put in place and has shared an insight into what customers can expect when they pay their first visit post-lockdown.
This includes one very crucial change to the self-service decks and it could spell the end of being able to pile up your plate with potatoes, vegetables and gravy in a guilt-free manner.
Releasing reopening plans and addressing this matter on a statement via its website, Toby Carvery said: “Things may be a little different for a while, so please bear with us.”
“We’re delighted to say that you will still be able to enjoy your favourite roast just the way they like it, but we will reopen our Carvery Deck with our chefs serving the roast meats, vegetables and accompaniments to you at the deck.”
“The safety and well-being of our teams and guests is our top priority.”
“To help create a safe environment for everyone, we’re enhancing our high standards of hygiene even further. We’ve deep cleaned every Toby Carvery and thorough cleaning routines are taking place regularly all day, every day. We’ve increased the frequency of our cleaning routines [and] every table is cleaned thoroughly at the end of every guest visit.”
“We have introduced new measures to ensure that we meet government advice on safe distancing. In order [to] meet the current UK Government guidelines… for now, the maximum number of guests per table booking is six.”
“Our teams have been working tirelessly to ensure we can operate safely and provide the same level of great service.”
“We ask all our guests to be respectful of these policies when they visit us.”
Toby Carvery has also announced that a limited menu is likely to be expected upon reopening.
Contactless payments and Apple/Googlepay are also being encouraged “to avoid handling cash” and the contactless limit for card payments has also been increased to a maximum of £45.

Coca-Cola confirms the Christmas Truck is coming to Manchester this weekend
Coca-Cola has finally confirmed the news we’ve all been waiting for… the Christmas Truck will be in Manchester this weekend.
December is here, the temperatures have plummeted outside, and the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ is nearing closer and closer by the day – but it’s not Christmas until you’ve gone and got a Coca-Cola from the giant red van is it, right?
Well luckily, we won’t have to wait too much longer to get to do that once again.
The soft drinks company confirmed that ‘Holidays Are Coming’ a couple of weeks back, with the UK tour of the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas Truck now well underway, and having visited other major northern cities such as Leeds and Liverpool over the last few days.
And now, Coca-Cola has revealed that the legendary van is coming to Greater Manchester this weekend, and will be stopping off at the Trafford Centre for one day only.
The much-loved festive symbol will be arriving outside the shopping centre tomorrow (Saturday 2 December) from midday right through until 8pm to provide “the ultimate Christmas celebration”, with a whole host of activities planned for families of all ages.
The 2023 Coca-Cola Christmas Truck journey will be packed with “interactive experiences for visitors to immerse themselves in”.
Anyone who heads to the Trafford Centre from midday tomorrow will first be welcomed by a walk-in, snow-filled bauble that invites them to “step into a winter wonderland for the perfect holiday snapshot”, all before making a stop at the ‘Ho-Ho-Hoop Hut’ to take part in a fun festive game for the chance to win a selection of prizes – including meal-inspired rewards, and recycled Christmas tree decorations.
Families can then finish off the tour by posing for a memorable photo opportunity in front of the iconic Coca-Cola truck.
Visitors are welcome to listen to the Coca-Cola Christmas choir as they perform a set of carols too.
Fancy it then? If you’re ready to kick-start Christmas the right way, then make sure you get yourself down to the Trafford Centre from midday tomorrow.

Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%
Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%, and they’re now available to get your hands on for a limited time only.
With December officially here, and the festive season nearing closer by the day, most UK supermarkets are rolling out deals left, right, and centre to help shoppers save a few pennies during ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ as the cost of living crisis continues – and it seems like Tesco is absolutely no different.
That’s because the retailer has decided to knock a whopping £12 off the regular price of one-litre bottles of one of the best-loved Christmas tipples.
Fans of the classic Irish cream liqueur drink will probably want to run not walk to their nearest Tesco to stock up on Baileys ready for the big day to arrive, as big bottles of the festive favourite have been reduced from £22 right down to just £10, and are now available to fill your basket with.
But… there’s a bit of a catch (isn’t there always?)
Not only is the over half-price offer only available for a very limited time, and due to expire at the end of next week, but shoppers will only be able to buy the one-litre bottles at the impressive £10 price if they’re Tesco Clubcard customers.
You were probably expecting that’d be the case, right? The supermarket – which is well-known for the savings it offers via is loyalty card scheme all year round – is giving Clubcard users up until Monday 11 December to nip to their nearest branch or head online to the Tesco website and buy as many bottles of Bailey’s as they fancy.
As part of the supermarket’s commitment to “keep prices low” until the end of the year, stuffing, roast potatoes, cranberry sauce, and even tin foil have all seen their prices slashed as the retailer aims to help those struggling to cover costs.
