    We usually have a great experience here, however, the food was only lukewarm, so you could taste fat more on the meats. Also when we arrived we were asked if we wanted pigs in blankets, we thought this was part of the carvery price. We were not advised that it wasn't. So were shocked when it appeared on the bill, we only ate a few of them too.

    This place is very tired, tables, chairs and decor very dated. Even the christmas decorations were dated. The food was absolutely awful, dry roast beef, pork with no crackling as stated on the menu. The veggies were dry, overcooked and tasteless. Tobys famous gravy, disgusting.

    food was dissapointing, maybe because it was 7pm when we arrived. roast potatoes were hard, stuffing i wouldn't put it on a plate ( possibly the wall as rendering) meat was cut so thin, you could see through it.would'nt return.

    Always get a great welcome here, the Formby Toby always has a welcoming feeling it's so cosy. The staff can't do enough to help, they went out of their way to find us some crayons for my Grandsons. The food is superb as always, and definitely the best roast by far.

    Taken to our table. Waitress arrived straight away to take order. Went to get our carvery which was delicious. Couldn't really find fault with anything !

  • Alison F.1 review

    When we arrived 6.30pm on a Sunday evening, it was busy. Not so busy we had to wait as we had booked, but most tables full. Service good as friendly waitress quick to take and bring drink order. At this time of night lots of young families so some crying children. Food was plentiful. Self serve for the most part. Good choice and food hot. Would definitely come back.

    The Pub had come recommended hence why we booked - the service was good with friendly helpful & attentive service, but we were disappointed with the food as the veg weren't very hot & the meat portions rather small!
