We went there for the "all you can eat" breakfast. They should change the name to as much as you can bear to eat! I find it a shame that when reviewing what is basically a franchise system I should find such vast differences between venues. I have used the Toby at Corstorphine and also the one in Livingston and... More

I took my sons here for dinner tonight. The bottomless drinks were a super idea and the food was great - plentiful and at a reasonable price. Angela, our waitress, was excellent. She was friendly, polite and really attentive. Looking forward to going back again soon!

I don't ever expect much from a Toby! But I'm always surprised! The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is actually half decent and at that price it's very good value for money.

This carvery has very friendly staff and the food is always well cooked and excellent value for money. Not the place for a romantic meal but fantastic for taking the family or simply when you simply couldn't be bothered to cook for yourself

Stopped off with friends, the restaurant was so busy, however we quickly got a seat. Meal was terrifically good value for money, treacle sponge with custard superb. Just slightly disappointed that there weren't enough staff on and you had to wait for ages. Otherwise no other issues and we will be back.

Thank you for you're feedback. The treacle sponge is most of our favourite too! Hopefully the next time you visit us we do have a full team on and service can run smoother. Thank you Team Toby Liberton More

The restaurant was easy to find with a big car park. The starter and pudding were good (Chicken liver pâté and a sundae.) Unfortunately, as there weren't many customers, the vegetables for the main course had been sitting round for far too long, answers thus spoilt.

Very much "it does as it says on the tin" kind of place. Staff were very good, food was as expected and atmosphere are you would like for this kind of a place. Don't expect al a carte, it really isnt that kind of a place, very much good pub grub. Carvery is good with a pleasant, courteous chef serving.

Thank WoodyJane

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.
