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.
Really disappointed with the Xmas festive menu goose as so tough had difficulty cutting it with a knife!, same of the roast potato too
Wonderful evening really special food and very attentive and friendly service
Fantastic- all of it all thanks
Afternoon tea was lovely and service was excellent. The only thing I would suggest is offering a glass of prosecco with it. £29 is expensive without it, although it was very nice.
Excellent . I will highly recommend you on the food , wine , value & service 5 stars alround , hope to return soon .
Xmas lunch for our Staff yesterday. An excellent meal served by caring and efficient staff. Everyone very happy with our choice of venue!!
This was out 2nd visit in the past couple of months. Thoroughly enjoyable experience, food delicious. Staff very attentive. Can’t wait to visit again in the future.
Wonderful food as always, very friendly staff.
Best meal in Southend all round 5star
You are not a cheap place to eat, bhut as the saying goes "you get what you pay for".
Lovely Christmas afternoon tea, it was nice to be offered more sandwiches.
Best roast I’ve had in a long time and the service was of the highest standard. Will definitely be going back
I took my nan here for a Christmas afternoon tea and it was absolutely amazing! The service was excellent, making sure our tea was always full and kept checking to see if we needed anything else. The food was delicious and tasted like it had all come fresh out the oven. Would definitely go back, the best afternoon tea we've had in Southend!
Service is fantastic that’s because the staff have been here since it opened & that says something ..wasn’t keen on afternoon tea but the food normally is great ..drinks are made perfect ... overall 9 /10 ...
We had a great time. Can't wait to go back.
Afternoon tea was the nicest I’ve ever had and the service was impeccable! Thank you for a lovely afternoon
The food was amazing, staff were lovely. A wonderful evening. Can’t wait to go back
Was a bit confused about the choice of menu, but no problem at all as the manager sort it all out quickly
FANTASTIC TIP TOP FOOD /SERVICE/SURROUNDINGS Seven of us visited for Sunday lunch 2/12/18. Myself and my wife are most critical about dining out after many substandard meals/service over the last 20 years. We are amazed to find an establishment that ticks all the boxes and we shall only be eating out at one place from now on.Thank you all at Aurum see you soon. kind regards Mark Dyson
Lovely views, attentive service (but not too much) and a tasty afternoon tea.
Hotel was really nice and clean - would recommend for dinner aswell the food was really nice, 5 star dining I would say. Me and my partner had a really nice weekend away from London.
This was the perfect evening to celebrate our friends birthday! The food was stunning great fresh produce skilfully brought together to produce an amazing meal complimented by good wines and top everything the service was friendly and proficient We’ll definitely be going again!
Lovely food, very pleased to see a vegan menu!
Once again we couldn't find fault with anything! We enjoyed a fantastic 20th Wedding Anniversary lunch made extra special by Jonathan and the crew. Thank you Aurum
What a fantastic hotel! Located in a great place. Views of the sea from our rooms were amazing. Staff were so friendly and helpful, they made our annual team meeting a success. Great service throughout, we love the décor and the atmosphere was great! Thank you to all your staff for making our stay feel special and our meeting run smoothly.
