Been here a few times as its local to my nan. Enjoy it everytime i go. I am very fussy with carverys aswell because most places the food is cold and is left and left. The cooks change the food and put fresh out and its all piping hot. Will be back soon

My wife's adult children took us to the Carvery to celebrate her birthday. The waitress asked did we want the carvery and when I asked to see a menu for an alternative meal was told that the only alternatives were vegetarian meals. Clearly the establishment lives up to its name. The ladies in the party went to the carvery first.... More

Very disappointed in what we were faced with on arriving for a birthday meal for my Mum! We had a voucher too which we had received at a Christmas party meal with friends at the end of November. Told they had no meat left and it was only 7pm!!!

Following this we booked a table for a family get-together on my wife's birthday later in the week..

Description
Welcome to the Toby Carvery Ainsdale. 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 Southport’s favourite carvery restaurant. Drop by and you'll find lots more on offer, including cooked breakfasts and tasty specials.
