I booked a table online and explained what the meal was for, i.e. a birthday celebration, and ordered their birthday cake and for the staff to sing happy birthday. Everything was perfect from the moment we walked through the doors to paying the bill. Service, food, birthday cake was just fantastic. Highly recommended.

This was our first visit to a carvery. Being vegan it's not a natural place to go but word of mouth about Toby Carvery now being vegan friendly is spreading so we gave it a go. Overall we were very impressed. We got a mushroom wellington and a lentil cottage pie. Both were very nice. We had to order separate... More

The food was fine, except the bread which was still frozen and neede thawing out, the staff service was fine, but the seating was very dirty, the carpet sticky, and some of the cutlery was in need of either a good scrub,...

I'll be honest. I'm not so fond of carveries as usually the food is bland at best and although the turkey is usually nice, the vegetables consistently have no flavour. I went to the Toby carvery last night and was pleasantly surprised. The turkey was lovely and moist, the roast potatoes tasted of actual roast potato as opposed to dull,... More

I've never been to a Toby Carvery before but was persuaded by a family member to go to one. On the whole, I wasn't that impressed. We had the carvery on the Sunday. The queue for the food was rather long and they had a chef serving who had to keep running out to the kitchen to get more meat... More

Description
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.
