My wife and I called here on way home on 3rd January. Greeting and service were excellent and food was good (apart from over-cooked sprouts). Following this we booked a table for a family get-together on my wife's birthday later in the week.. Subsequently found they offered balloons and other options for birthday celebrations but I was too late to... More

Appalling Christmas Dinner at this Toby Carvery, lettuce in starter, outside, poor quality leaves that were unwashed, I know this as we felt we were eating grit, leaves being hidden under Marie Rose sauce, main carvery meal tepid, deserts the quality of a greasy spoon, all for the princely sum of £45.95 a head! If my Mum hadn't have prepaid,... More

It's approaching Christmas so you don't expect too much. I do expect it to be hot this wasn't even warm. We got there 15 mins after opening and it was relatively quiet. Meat was tasty. Close portion control. Just enough. Veg was overcooked and tasteless. Real shame wanted it to be good. staff were very friendly. Probably wouldn't go back.... More

On our recent visit to the Toby Carvery I was pleasantly surprised to find the improvement in the temperature of the food. As always the meats were up to the correct standard and the staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs. Although I will say the constant changing of the menu is a downfall for the menus. Overall,... More

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.
