Toby Carvery Road trip

Toby Carvery Road trip

There are many ways to see more of the UK - but one man decided to do it by eating at every one of the country's 154 Toby Carvery restaurants, in just seven months.

The intrepid diner, Adrian - who has recorded his journey on Twitter and his website - named the mammoth mission Toby Quest. It began when he visited a Toby Carvery restaurant before attending a gig in Manchester - and wondered how many more times he could repeat the experience around the UK.

The quest soon outgrew gig-going, leading Adrian to eat from the menu everywhere from Toby Carvery Heaton Chapel in Stockport to the Hollybush in Quinton, Birmingham; with 152 other stops in between.

Adrian has eaten a plethora of Toby breakfasts, carvery dinners and puddings, with photographs taken outside each venue by his friend Roger as proof of his tasty voyage. He cites good-value food and an interest in UK travel as his sole motivations for completing the challenge.

Rachel Westwood, brand manager of Toby Carvery said: "We're really proud to have such a dedicated fan and were pleased to invite Adrian and Roger to enjoy a complimentary meal in Quinton, to celebrate his achievement."
