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, 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 the carvery. Outside there are great views overlooking the sea, a lovely spot even for just a coffee and maybe take advantage of the free wireless internet access. The daily carvery offers you the best of British produce, with a choice of up to 3 roasts and wide selection of fresh seasonal vegetables. A table menu with main dishes and snacks / sharers is also available. To complement your meal or enjoy alone, the pub offers an extensive selection of world wines, choice of up to 3 real ales and premium draught lagers. A Premier Inn is located next door and breakfast is available to guests of the hotel and walk in people as well.
