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

Lovely house and the gardens are nice and there's ample parking. The food is just what you'd expect from any Toby. Sufficient meat and as much veg as you want. The food's nothing special but given the price, I thought it was good value. The staff at this Toby are pleasant and welcoming, especially those who are presumably from overseas... More

We visited on a recent Sunday evening for the carvery. Our first course - although we had different ones - had a bread roll which had been heated at least twice and was bordering on the rock hard on the outside. These were replaced, but not a great apology. My pate was very good, and my colleagues soup was fine.... More

The Toby Carvery is situated half way between the city centre and the city bypass, and is less than 10 mins drive out from Cameron Toll. I have passed it on many occasions in the car, and it's set back from the main road in what appears to be an old former Georgian house in nice grounds with ample parking.... More

I love this place. Great food and friendly staff. Good atmosphere inside and nice grounds surrounding the restaurant. You know what you are getting here and you can count on a really good, filling meal. I always avoid on a Sunday as the prices are bumped up by £3 per person with nothing more to show for the increase but... More

In Edinburgh it can be hard to find places to eat which offer value for money. This is especially the case if you have kids. The Toby Carvery situated at Howdenhall Road is an exception. I have been here with my wife a few times in the past but not recently and things have improved. We were welcomed by a... More

I normally enjoy Toby, however on this occasion they had issues with the ovens, which meant at the time I went up for my carvery there were no roast potatoes, an integral part of a roast dinner. With no hint of any compensation or discount. A little dissapointed by the service.

Had a lovely roast dinner here last night. All of the food was hot + fresh. The only downside was the meat portions were pretty skimpy compared to usual, the king size was more like what you would normally get, with the only change being some chipolatas + an extra yorkie. Overall very good for the price and there is... More
