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
great service and food
As a coeliac I thought the choice of gluten free options was very poor! No gluten free bread or crackers were available and the desserts were very disappointing. For the price I felt it could have been much better. Most Coeliac's do not want to be given the option of a fruit salad as a dessert, it's like giving a vegetarian an omelette!!
could not fault service and meal and a very helpful staff would recomend your resturant to all my friends and also will be back myselve at a later date
We 4 all enjoyed our time with you yesterday. Sarah our server was great - so attentive and friendly delivering all requests promptly. The lunch menu catered to each of our meat, fish or vegetarian dining preferences and the dishes were both tasty and presented well. Great views over the airport and the free parking was such a bonus. Highly recommend eating here.
Food was very good. The only small criticism was that after our initial drinks order we were not asked again if we wanted anything else, I had to ask , even with two empty glasses sitting on the table and only just starting the main course!
I had the beef, but unfortunately it was very tough. Service was quite slow, firstly on initial order taking, and between courses. However, apart from the beef, the food was of good quality.
Twice I have visited recently and both times there have been item that are unavailable and when you receive your bill at the end the items are still on the bill.
We waited for drinks constantly and dessert, not a good night which is such a shame as been there before got sick of hearing Sorry
We had ordered from 3 course for £25 but the bill did not reflect this. We had also paid deposit which seemed to cause problems.
Disappointed that the only menu available was Sunday Roast. Not advised of this when booking table online or checking in Unlike previous dining experiences, both food and service were no more than average
Most enjoyable lunch, staff attentive but not overly so
Very nice lunch for 2. service and surrounding could not be faulted.
We really enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. Great evening.
I came for my mother’s birthday - the service was awful. I’m a vegetarian and only had one main option. Dissatisfied.
We celebrated my partners 60th birthday here for 24 people. The service was great, our waitress very attentive and we had an area completely to ourselves. Thank you and your staff Holiday Inn, would thoroughly recommend
Excellent service, the team really looked after us. The food was delicious, such good value using groupon. Only negative was dissappointing choice of dessert, either ice cream or a brownie when using groupon
Really impressed with exceptional service. Waiter was so friendly & helpful. Enjoyed the food, drinks & view from our window table. Definitely worth a visit.
We couldn't have been more pleased. The staff were friendly and helpful, particularly Beth, and made it a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic. The private dining room was perfect and it was a lovely touch to find it decorated with balloons and table decorations. Lots of personal touches. We are all coming back again!
No clear system to exit the car park after our visit.
Very friendly service. Had 2 course lunch and was full! Would definitely revomnend. The view was amazing over the airport.
Lovely food with efficient service , drinks expensive
Poor compared to previous groupon ... limited choice and no dessert menu ... we loved adding sides and desserts previously... new menu doesn't encourage this ... poor ... bring gammon starter and minute steak back please
Fantastic food and service with excellent view of the airport for aviation enthusiasts. Perfect for families and couples alike Love the new menu! Not our first visit to the 1935 restaurant and definitely wont be our last. A special thank you to Sam who took great care of us.
Excellent food and excellent service. Made to feel very welcome and comfortable. We will 100% be back
Really enjoyed our stay, excellent staff, comfortable room, great view and very nice food.
