Local Restaurant Welcomes Back Holidaymakers With Free Roast Dinner

A Southport restaurant is asking holidaymakers to think of their 'local' as they're sunning themselves abroad by sending a postcard back home to the family restaurant.  The team at Toby Carvery on Liverpool Road will thank people who send a postcard from their travels to the restaurant with a free roast on their return to the UK, so they can indulge in a classic British dish after sampling local food abroad.

Alexandra Wheelton, general manager at Toby Carvery Ainsdale, said:- "Holidays are a great time to relax and enjoy the sunshine but there's nothing like coming back to home comforts like your own bed, a good cup of tea and a roast dinner with all the trimmings; especially one that is cooked for you! As people start travelling back to Southport, we want to extend that holiday feeling and thank our loyal guests for thinking of us while abroad with a great meal and service. Whether a traditional 'Wish You Were Here' postcard or a digital photo postcard through apps like Touchnote, we can't wait to hear what guests are up to on their holidays. In return, we'll welcome families back to reality and ease the post holiday blues with a tasty carvery at the home of the roast."

Southport locals who want to tuck into a free classic roast on their return simply need to send a postcard which includes their email to Toby Carvery, PO Box 11572, Birmingham, B15 1WR. The sender will then be sent a voucher redeem their free Toby Carvery, complete with slow roasted beef, British turkey, honey and mustard glazed gammon or apple, honey and cider glazed pork with crackling, Yorkshire pudding and an unlimited selection of 10 steamed vegetables and potatoes.

The best postcards will also be shared on Toby Carvery's social media channels:- Twitter  and Facebook.
