Taybarns is an English low-cost all-you-can-eat restaurant chain owned by Whitbread, modelled on the Golden Corral chain in the United States. Customers pay on arrival and can eat as much food as they like from a 34-metre-long food counter.[1] As with most buffets, there is a lower price at lunchtime than evenings, and a slightly higher charge is levied at weekends and during bank holidays.[2][3] Food choices consist of themed counters, including a salad bar, soup, "Best of British" (encapsulating the former "chip shop" and "carvery" counters), pizza, "The Spice Rack" (Tex-Mex), pasta, grill, and dessert, as well as free refills of soft drinks and a separate drinks menu for alcoholic drinks.


The seven Taybarns restaurants are in Barnsley, Coventry, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Gateshead, South Shields, Swansea, and Wigan.[4] In late 2009, the company made public its intention to expand rapidly, with some Brewers Fayre pubs to be converted to the Taybarns brand and up to 30 new restaurants to open the following year.[1] However, as of 2014, the company has not opened any additional restaurants and continues to operate solely from its seven original locations.
