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.

    My friend and I were on a day trip. Long walk from the Pier but worth it. We were meeting a friend for drinks and running slightly over our booking time, the barman gave us another 15 mins which was very helpful. The staff were very friendly, especially Carol waiting on our table. We had the roast carvery which was very enjoyable. Thank you.

    Visiting family on this occasion. The food was superb, hot plates, piping hot food, well cooked and refreshed constantly. Lovey staff, especially Julia? couldn't have been nicer and more welcoming. Very happy experience. Restored my faith in Toby as another branch experience was anything but good.

    As always was a very pleasant time at your restaurant and as I had my autistic grandson with me it can be very challenging, the first waitress with the blue make up was very nice polite and helpful but then just before we was leaving another young lady took over that wasn't very pleasant or helpful at all and when she took my money she didn't give me my change and I had to go look for her... And with a 'tut' she gave me my change but we will be returning
    Thank you so very much

    Overall the dining experience was OK we had to wait about 15 minutes before someone came to our table to take our order but apart from that everything was OK.

    We have been going for the last two years every Wednesday but I have to say the recent manager doesn't sell the place there's been several times when no acknowledgement made will waiting 5 10 mins with no eye contact all it takes is sorry guys be with you in a minute also although the girls are lovely Juliette carol and Paula they have had too many people to serve and last week we went somewhere else because although there were lots of empty tables not enough staff to clear them . We will still go every week in the hope service will improve as we did love it here come on management up your game
