Right on the sea front and offering views out across the water, Toby Carvery Thorpe Bay serves up a feast of Sunday roast delicacies all week long. There are menus for children, indulgent desserts, and al fresco seating to enjoy the sea air.

Featuring classic British roasts every day of the week, the Toby Carvery menu is renowned for its crowd-pleasing selection. Choose from juicy, slow-cooked meats, seasonal vegetables and hand-ruffled potatoes (with each one checked to make sure it’s gorgeously crispy). Tempting alternatives at this Toby Carvery in Southend include allotment pie, and salmon with coriander and lime, while a varied vegetarian range includes the broccoli & brie parcel.

Old-school puddings are always on offer at Toby Carvery pubs, with famous signature crumbles served alongside chocolate & cherry torte, and baked vanilla cheesecake. The drinks list features beers, ciders, wines and soft drinks, and full-works, all-you-can-eat breakfasts are served each day.

A great family-friendly spot next to the sea, Toby Carvery Thorpe Bay is a 6-minute drive from Southend East Rail Station.

    Carvery and dessert (ice cream) were excellent. Waitress (Jane) was very helpful and efficient. One guest had a vegetarian meal that they didn't think was so good. Vegetarian menu probably needs improving.

    I guess the reason I like the Toby carvery is the wonderful variety you have, there is always a choice of four meats, and a wonderful array of vegetables you can help yourself to, not to mention the tasty gravy and sauces.
