Having had an exellent meal some months ago, we had another opportunity to return for a birthday celebration, a delicious Sunday tea with all the family (8 adults and 4 children plus a newborn baby). The food was just great and the atmosphere was really friendly. The staff were very accommodating and we hope to return very soon. Thank you Aurum.

I’ve gotta be honest, we were extremely disappointed. Having been looking forward to a belated Valentine’s Day treat, the food was at best average and there was little choice on the menu. The female bathroom was smelly and required the sanitary bins to be changed! I appreciate the behaviour of diners may be beyond the control of the management, but the conduct of a certain young ‘lady’ required someone in a position of responsibility to address her repeated use of the ‘F’ word and her brash and raucous tone! The one saving grace, was the waiter, who was attentive but not over intrusive. He was also efficient, polite and professional With so much competition in the area, we won’t be rushing back, especially having paid nye on £120 for the ‘pleasure’! Alas, it certainly wasn’t the classy dining experience I had hoped for and envisaged!

Amazing service, beautifuly designed restaurant and divine food! They played lovely music that wasn’t too loud but set the atmosphere, couldn’t recommend enough. It was expensive but of course you expect it when going somewhere like this. Nothing could’ve been improved in my eyes, was the perfect place for a romantic meal.

The service was good, until the shift changed, at which point it declined. The China was beautiful. The food for afternoon tea was good, but a pot of coffee rather a cup at a time would have been much better. Also some quiche or sausage rolls etc would have been a nice addition, we have had better at the Roslin Hotel and Royal Hotel. The cakes were nice, but the scones very small. While we’re offered extra sandwiches, this was not repeated with the cakes. The layout was ok, yet despite the restaurant being Almost empty we were seated next to the only other party there! We had a table next to the bifolds which had a would’ve had a pleasant view on the sunny day we visited, but was spoilt by the groups of people sitting and smoking directly on the other side of the glass on the raised part of the terrace! We would not return for afternoon tea on the basis it is being provided, and would recommmed other local venues to friends above yours for afternoon tea. They have created a smart venue in a great location, but need to up their game to compete.

The restaurant is beautifully appointed and the atmosphere is lovely. The staff are friendly and attentive but the food was disappointing. I had scallops as a starter. There were only two, which were delicious but the noodles were not very hot. I had the cauliflower as a main and that definitely needed to be hotter. Dessert was delicious. I felt it was expensive.

We had a wonderful afternoon tea and the food was delicious (especially the passion fruit panacotta type dessert!). I can't fault the service and it's lovely to see more sophisticated places like this in Southend. I would love to come back and try the a la carte options.

The service was amazing - can’t fault it and I would really recommend this as a special occasion restaurant - we’ll definitely be going back. The menu, although not extensive, has some unusual options to choose from. There was a good wine list and cocktail options from the bar - along with a warm atmosphere.

Set Menu very limited on a Thursday evening. An alternative menu would have encoraged us to return at a later date. The venu was good and the service could not have been better.
