Toby Cottage


”This is a really big thank you for the amazing way that you looked after us on Wednesday.
We always enjoy ourselves at Toby Cottage which is why I wanted this special evening to be with you. It all worked out perfectly (as we knew it would) and Judy, myself, and all of our friends had a really great time.
The table worked perfectly, as you said it would. I hope that we didn’t distract your other guests too much!? Personally, and it was my event, it was a perfect evening. I really, really enjoyed it, but as importantly I know that our friends all had a very good time because they told us so.
The food was superb and it was brilliant that we all had such a great choice, people did comment on this and were very impressed. Martin, our resident sommelier picked some excellent wines from your list which we all appreciated. Lastly, thanks very much for seeing two guests home to Walton. It was a very kind gesture that I know they appreciated and I certainly do. Thankyou very, very much.
Kind Regards Mike and Judy” Sept 22


“A quick thank you for a wonderful time had by all of my family yesterday. The food and service were exceptional – especially in view of the tremendous pressure you, your staff and the kitchen must have been under, with such a plethora of large parties.

Well done and thank you most sincerely.

Kindest regards”

John Saunders


“Dear Tony, Tony,

You joked so much with us, I am not sure who was who!!

But I had a lovely party with the champagne & menus. The food was first class and everyone said how good it was and we had made a wonderful choice. The waiters were great fun and I loved my day at the Toby.

With many thanks

“Dear Tony & Danny

Please thank all your staff for making our 60th Birthday meal so perfect, it could not have gone any better. Your attention to detail was everything we wanted.

We have had many compliments in the delicious food and excellent service. Hopefully many will make a return visit on their own.

We will certainly be back. Tony you could not improve our day in any way. Thank you”


“To all at Toby Cottage,

Dave & I would like to thank you all very much for the beautiful flowers you gave us for our anniversary.

We had a lovely evening as usual. Great food, great people.

Many Thanks, Di & Dave” – Di & Dave


“Dear Toni,

We have been visiting Toby Cottage for over forty years, but distance precludes our using it as frequently as we would wish.

However, last Thursday, my wife and I had lunch there with our son and his wife. Though the staff have changed over the years, the restaurant still retains that lovely friendly atmosphere, as personified by yourself, Laurent and Estevan, and the high catering standards have always been maintained.

Without doubt, the Toby Cottage remains our favourite restaurant – we just wished we lived a little nearer!” – Walter H. Mitchell
