Always love it here, cheap and cheerful! Vegetarian selection impressive and delicious. Vegetables were fresh and not dried out. Meat eater enjoyed meat and found it tasty and juicy. Were greedy and had sticky toffee pudding/treacle sponge - to die for!!!! Will be back!

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.
