What's New & Forthcoming


We opened our doors December 2014 as a new Toby Carvery. 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 and all teh trimmings so it's no wonder we're Southend on Sea's favourite carvery restaurant.

About our venue

Toby Carvery Thorpe Bay, known for many years as the Halfway House, is a new Toby Carvery venue which opened its doors in December 2014. We are located on the sea front in the up market area of the Eastern Esplanade some way from Southend town centre. Built in the late 1800’s it is a former Coaching House which has been much extended over the years. This is a classic British carvery but with a contemporary twist, light and airy with comfortable modern furniture. There is a warm feel inside with the rich coloured decor plus the open fire and is well laid out to enable easy flow to teh carvery. Outside you will find great views overlooking the sea, a lovely spot even for just a coffee and maybe take advantage of our free wireless internet access. Our new daily carvery offers you the best of British produce, with a choice of up to 3 roasts and wide selection of fresh seasonal vegetables. If you don't want a full carvery meal we provide a a table menu with main dishes and snacks / sharers available. To complement your meal or enjoy alone, we offer an extensive selection of world wines, choice of fine real ales and premium draught lagers. Being next to a Premier Inn we also have many business people in for a drink or a meal. Breakfast is available to guests of the hotel and walk in people as well.  You will always be welcomed by friendly staff and enjoy a relaxed atmosphere throughout the bar and restaurant. Be sure to look us up soon.
