Surely if there had been butter on the vegetables you would have noticed? To be honest, Toby Carvery is a fairly low-price outfit (fantastic value for money - our retired people's club has its Christmas lunch there and they do us three courses with wine and coffee for £12) and I doubt if they would use very much butter, if at all, to keep costs down.

I have been there twice and thought the vegetables were plain, if a bit overcooked, and only the roast potatoes looked as if they might have oil or some kind of fat on them.

I think we should have the right to ask without being embarrassed, if your child was nut intolerant or dairy intolerent you ask as any mother would! (why not ask if it got fat in it)

If you went to a party and their was a "FRUIT PUNCH" and you wanted some but had to drive home would you ask if had booze in it of course you would.

Oooh god no wonder my o/h doesnt like going out for dinner with me when i am dieting... I sound like a right B**ch!!

I tell em I've got gallstones if they look at me odd and say I'd collapse if I ate butter. Suddenly they tell you the truth-probably afraid of being sued or something.lol
