About Holiday Inn Southend, 1935
THE ONLY ROOFTOP RESTAURANT AND BAR IN ESSEX
1935 offers a spectacular dining experience and views to match.
The striking, fully sound-proofed 1935 Rooftop Restaurant and Bar sits atop the five-storey Holiday Inn Southend and takes its name from the year that the airport first opened as a municipal airport for the public.
Not only is this the first rooftop restaurant and bar in Essex, it is also a first for Holiday Inn across the UK. Whilst enjoying dinner & drinks in the evenings or wanting a place for a relaxing Sunday lunch, you will be able to enjoy breath-taking views of the surrounding Essex countryside and perhaps watch a plane taking off or landing at the airport.
Due to the high demand on Fridays & Saturday Nights please ensure you have your dinner reservation confirmed even if you are staying with us.
Afternoon Tea is served Monday to Saturday 14.00 - 16.00
The food and atmosphere was lovely and thoroughly enjoyed by all of us, unfortunately something was not right with the cheesecake as it was flavourless and had lumps of gelotine in it. It won’t put me off returning though.
Great service from arrival to departure. Our table was decorated for my partners birthday and a complimentary dessert was provided which was a nice touch. Table with a view was also nice, even when it wasn’t asked for. Great food and good selection.
There was a slight mix up with our meals - but this was soon rectified - and the staff were pleasant, friendly and attentive.
Wonderful, kind and attentive staff, made the birthday speciial! Loved the view and good food, thank you!
This was a follow up visit following a party booking last September for a couple who missed out. Six of us this time and all wish to come again.
Customer service in here is wonderful always so friendly we come here for coffee alot.we came for my mums birthday they had managed to get us a window seat which was perfect staff were lovely wine was nice the only thing that lets it down is the food which is a shame vegetables werent cooked probably and in a watery cheese sauce meat was chewy and roast potatoes weren’t crispy again service you cannot fault Just unfortunately the food lets it down
I made the booking awhile ago for my husbands 50th Birthday explaining it was a special occasion! It was disappointing to find on Sundays it’s only a roast I would have liked to have been told when booking
Excellent as usual! But the restaurant was a bit chilly - the air con was too efficient.
We had an excellent time, food, atmosphere, views, service from our waitress and value for money was excellent. No improvement could possibly be made at this restaurant.
Great service and great food.
Booked a table for 6 for my 60th birthday on a Thursday evening. where I sat there was space between the tables and there was no loud music so that you could talk without shouting, The staff were fantastic, and the food was excellent we all had something different from the menu and nobody had any complaints. I will be coming back with some of my friends and their wives in the next few months as they want to try it out.
Food usual standard although the pear and orange frangipane was tasteless and no trace of ginger in the ginger custard.
The service was appalling. We waited 20 minutes for a drink. The food was unfortunately also appalling.
The first time & definitely not the last
Excellent food and service. We will be back again soon.
My wife and I got married at Holiday Inn Southend 3 years ago and we have returned to the 1935 rooftop restaurant on all 3 of our anniversaries and we will continue to do so. The staff are always very friendly and the food is always excellent. Views of the airport are great and it is nice to see all of the planes coming and going while you eat. Coming back on our anniversary brings back great memories of our wedding day and what a great day the Holiday Inn gave us. Would recommend to anyone
Excellent service, food was lovely although portions were a little small for the price, but overall very good I would recommend anyone to try it
Excellent food and service, very relaxing surroundings viewing incoming and departing flights.
I wasn't impressed with this afternoon tea at all. Which is very disappointing as I take my boys up to the hotel to watch the planes, and thought I would try the afternoon tea. I have been lucky enough to experience afternoon tea in quite a few places, and this was, by far, the poorest one I have ever been to. Your portions were so small. I'm not a big eater, but couldn't believe how small it was. Some very squashed finger sandwiches came out, which was basically the size of two slices of bread put together. My friend and I ate these very quickly. I asked if we could have more, as any other afternoon tea I have ever been to has always been quick to offer. I was told, after the waiter had spoken to the chef, that it would be an extra charge. I said I'm not paying anymore for basically a slice of bread each. They did eventually agree to bring more out. Which was plain ham, and a egg each. The cakes were extremely disappointing, they actually presented three amaretti biscuits as part of the cake selection, which was laughable. There was a scone each, a very small piece of chocolate brownie, a miniature tartlet and a non descript tiny piece of cheesecake. I have never ever walked away from afternoon tea feeling like I could eat a meal straight away before but unfortunately did on this occasion. I will never return here, and I'm very disappointed that this is the case. This is the first time I've ever complained about a restaurant or afternoon tea before.
Not the best selection for afternoon tea , I requested gluten n dairy free which was rather limited n the pancakes/crepes were absolutely awful in taste n texture
FANTASTIC NIGHT, FANTASTIC FOORD, GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY, FRIENDLY STAFF, GREAT SERVICE - HIGHLY RECOMMEND AND WILL REVISIT VERY SOON.
We came for Christmas Day and loved it so thought we would give it a try on Mother's Day to spoil our mum and we weren't disappointed! Just great. The food, the service, the atmosphere, everything. Thank you very much, we will be back!
Very slow service, drinks took far too long to be delivered & food likewise. When food served did not match menu. Potatoes was only lukewarm. Salad only consisted of lettuce. Drinks were over priced. Only redeeming aspect was the view & staff polite
It was good to see that your restaurant was back to its normal service and standard, after the rather awful meal we had there on New Year's Day. The service staff were excellent and the food also. Thank you very much.
Really enjoyed the food - service was great
