Another visit to Toby formby excellent service and the carvery was really nice. The atmosphere is very good food excellent but meat portions could be cut thicker too thin. Overall no complaints staff excellent very helpful drinks are good reasonable prices. Will definitely return.

Good nourishing food with plenty of choice of meat and vegetables. Nice friendly and professional staff and competitive prices. The carvery selection (apart from Yorkshire puddings and cauliflower cheese) are gluten free and the vegatarian gravy is also gluten free, which is ideal if you need to avoid gluten. I would definitely recommend this Toby Carvery.

We visited last week. The meal was excellent for the money we paid. There was a good selection of vegetables and the staff were friendly and welcoming. There were four roasts on offer. The meat was carved a little thinly. The crackling and Yorkshire puddings were good and all the food was piping hot.

Description
Welcome to the Toby Carvery Formby. When it comes to roast dinners, we really know our stuff. Every day our chefs lay on a feast of tender, hand-carved meats with all the trimmings – including towering Yorkshire puds, golden roasties with all those lovely little crunchy bits, and plenty of freshly prepared veg, all crowned with proper gravy. So it's no wonder we're Liverpool’s favourite carvery restaurant. Drop by and you'll find lots more on offer, including cooked breakfasts and tasty specials.
