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
Food delicious, staff brilliant, helpful and really helpful. No patronising “enjoy “ or “there you go”. That goes a long way in my book! Views anazing and prices very competitive. Can’t wait to return. Thank you everyone!
Great place to take a toddler who was enthralled by the planes and we were able to enjoy a relaxing meal. Food was good, service and staff very friendly and attentive.
Children’s food should come out first rather than the adults. Sauces and condiments should be readily available rather than having to wait for them. Other than these comments we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the children loved watching the planes. We will be returning.
Visited using a Groupon offer - this was our 2nd visit here, having had the afternoon tea previously, and we had enjoyed it last time so were happy to return. Food and drink were all very good, sensible sized portions - we both had whitebait to start, then I had the meatballs and luinguine in a pomodoro sauce, while hubby had the pork loin chop, then we both had coffees. Service was good considering that there weren't actually that many staff on duty - only downside was having to wait for the chips to be brought out to accompany my husband's main course. Great views across the airport though do feel that those actually eating there should have preference over those in the bar area.
Generally the service was attentive and professional. No complaints. The wine , starter and dessert were all fine. However, the roast lamb was too rare and fell short in taste and tenderness. If I was a professional critic I would probably not hold back, so I think 1935 should do rather better.
Really lovelly eveing - staff very lovely -! Food great
Although I understand you cannot book the window tables when we walked in there were two window tables empty, why ? Pre booked, reserved ? I was told first come first serve, I booked on Tuesday for Friday meal . If its first come first serve, when we got there why could we not of have the empty tables. We also had the table behind the reception and for our first visit, not good. We had to ask twice for drinks when we sat down . Would I go back again? If asked , yes out of choice no.
Waiter very slow despite no other tables in restaurant. Had to ask for glass of water twice as he forgot. He also forgot to bring horseradish sauce . Service poor. We wanted a dessert but got fed up waiting !! Sunday dinner lovely though.
1st time we have had a meal here and we will Be back
Had a very happy stay. Very comfortable and very quiet too. Only criticism wish the bed was bigger. A king-size would have been superb.
very good food, service and excellent views!

Great team really made our evening special. Spoilt the birthday girl and the food was gorgeous Thank you
A lovely way to start our holiday.
once again a brilliant night, was looked after, from start to finish, and little special touches, that were added to make our anniversary special, thanks for the anniversary card, and the complimentary drinks. and thanks to the chef for making an apple strudel for us cant wait for the next time.
Lovely bright setting overlooking the airfield. After a promising start, food was ok but not warm, service was slow between courses.
We came along for my sons 3rd birthday and he loved seeing the planes as he was eating. The staff were really friendly and they even gave him a chocolate bar which he was over the moon with. Thank you so much for making his day.
I took my mother there for her 92nd birthday, she absolutely loved it. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Extremely enjoyable evening out. Staff were first class, attentive, friendly but not overbearing and intrusive. Will definitely be returning.
