It is understood that if approved, the Toby could be open by summer 2016.

The restaurant would have capacity for 178 covers and car parking space for 66 vehicles.

In planning documents submitted to Aylesbury Vale District Council, the company said ‘Toby Carvery is a distinctive brand pub with a strong emphasis on family dining’.

This ‘brand identity is reinforced by a traditional building form’ proposed for the Berryfields site.

The proposal ‘is a typical pub-style building with a varied roofline in traditional pitched tiled roofs’.

“Separate dining and drinking terraces/patios are formed at their respective sides of the building. The dining terrace relates to the large folding doors that spill out from the restaurant side.

“The drinking terrace is a separated area with access directly from the bar seating area.”

“CCTV shall be installed on the site in accordance with Mitchells and Butlers policies.”

The nearest Toby Carvery restaurants to Aylesbury are currently in Hemel and Milton Keynes.

The self-styled ‘home of the roast’ offers meat straight from the carvery deck, alongside seasonal vegetables.

Other mains include salads and bangers and mash, while there are also kids’ and breakfast menus.

Nationally, Toby serves around 39 million drinks every year; over 21 million meals; half a million turkey meals and the same amount of joints of beef.

It has been around for more than 30 years and employs 4,500 people.
