At Aurum, our cuisine celebrates the best of Essex and the UK and is located in the heart of Southend-on-Sea. Our 70 seater restaurant is open all day for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. We take care to collaborate with local suppliers and producers to preserve their traditions and heritage. We follow the cycle of the seasons to bring regional cuisine.
We constantly source and develop our ingredients and techniques to bring high quality, fresh and flavourful dishes to your table.
Our menu at Aurum uses the best of the season’s produce and is locally sourced. We aim for it to be a combination of refined gastronomy with delicious flavour but, importantly, for it to be healthy, balanced and exciting for the eye, as well as the palate.
Great food & service. The cocktails are amazing. Would highly recommend.
Amazing food with the best roast potatoes I’ve tasted in a very long while. Complements to the chef.
A very nice setting.
Couldn’t fault the service, however the food was terrible. 2 of our meals had to be sent back as they were inedible. The desert was almost as bad but we gave up. The servers were very attentive and were apologetic/embarrassed by the standard of food they were delivering. Keep serving food of this quality and you won’t last long.
Excellent foot and welcoming, efficient staff and service
Consistent high standard of food and service.
Using the Seven Hotel meeting room enhances my client's view of my firm's professionalism.
Just very very good
Excellent as always
lovely service, food was really nice. overall, we would definitely return and recommend.
Had afternoon tea. Sandwiches choices were limited despite informing them ahead of time of allergy to prawns , served prawn sandwiches with the rest . Cobwebs in the folding doors, tatty curtains , and outside was a complete mess, could have tidy up a bit . The pastries were really good but such a let down with sandwich choices as we were told chicken sandwich were just enough for the other customers , although they ask us if we would like to have any choice of more sandwiches 😂😂 . Floor in the main dining hall needs a good scrub/ hoover too. Had Sunday lunch here previously and food/ service were excellent . Bit of a let down on return this time.
Afternoon tea was great, service was great, very nice staff and also location and view fantastic!
Had a really lovely afternoon tea here. Staff very friendly. Would recommend & come back. Alittle slow trying to get bill & drinks but a very minor thing.
It was an amazing birthday meal and would love to come back.
Booked table for my wife's birthday, as it is her favourite restaurant. Menu was looked so good, we ordered pre-starters. Food was delicious as always, and they even made my wife a boozy birthday dessert with sparklers in. Staff were welcoming, friendly, and informative of dishes. Service was impeccable and couldn't have asked for more. We will be booking again in near future
Visited for afternoon tea for my daughter’s birthday. The welcome was lovely and we really couldn’t fault anything. The food was plentiful and delicious. Very good selection of teas. Would definitely recommend. Thank you.

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening but feel the wine list needs to be changed. Tried 3 different wines throughout the evening and none were good quality
Excellent afternoon tea. Plenty fully and good quality Excellent service staff very attentive we will definitely return A special thanks to Jonathan who made us feel very welcome
Ate here on a Friday night. I arrived quite early in the evening and I appreciated how the service was the same high standard when it was busy as when it was quiet. The food is really tasty and well presented. I also appreciate that the wine list is a bit different and like the thought that has been into the categories and selections. All in all, good visit. Would return and would recommend.
Restaurant very pleasant. Staff helpful and attentive.
