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 meal Friendly service Food took a bit long to serve due to problems in the kitchen.
Thanks for a lovely evening. My wife really enjoyed her surprise. Service and food was great. All the food was presented well and hot.
It wS really nice a great place with amazing food and service
Lovely special recognition as it was our anniversary. Delicious food and cocktails!
Was disappointed in the food this time as normally excellent. The olives were forgotten to be put in the salad as described in the menu but were brought to us when asked. My granddaughter and I both had the lemon meringue with sorbet for our second course both of us agreed that the lemon was far too sharp as brought tears to the eyes as well as the pastry and merengue needed a chisel to break in up. On receiving the bill a charge was made for the water we had which on previous occasions has been no charge. Was a disappointing visit this time. Shame as usually 5 stars.
Had a lovely lunch using a groupon voucher. Great food, lovely atmosphere and excellent service. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Looking forward to returning soon.
We arranged a very special event. Our gender reveal. We wanted to do a trick reveal and communicated with the manager about how we wanted to do it. I can't commend the staff enough for accommodating all my guests as we were a large party. Thank you so much for everything we had a magical day. Thank you again xx
Lovely flavoursome meal - a warm atmosphere and very friendly and courteous staff members
excellent food,great service very enjoyable.
Tasty generous portions. Lovely service.
We had a lovely meal. Will definitely go back again
Food was very good but was given the wrong main course but was soon rectified.the final bill we had drinks from another table added to ours but again soon rectified.
Enjoyed a family party celebration
Lovely restaurant, great staff and service. Thanks to Sam for accommodating our party of 12 at short notice x
From initial contact to make the booking until the end of our visit yesterday Sam was exceptional. He looked after us so well and made sure our sons 18th birthday lunch was truly enjoyable and all of the staff looked after our every need! We will definitely be back and wouldn’t hesitate to book again for our next special event. Thank you so much to Sam and the rest of the team!
The service was great. The food good except for the roast potatoes. The outside of them was so hard that it took an effort to break through this. Unfortunately they let the meal down. In terms of stars for them, it would just about reach one. However, overall, the meal warranted 4 stars. Perhaps, if it was not the Christmas period, they might improve.
Dreadful 65 minute wait for my partner’s meal! If it wasn’t for the concern and excellent relationship that our waiter (Sam Junior) engendered, we would have walked out. He saved the evening.
Unfortunately we were pretty disappointed with the Festive Afternoon Tea, the presentation was not how it was advertised in your brochure, just served on platters rather than a tier stand, there was no Xmas decoration to the plate. There was no Strawberry Cheesecake served, and also could have done with a few more sandwiches. We had to keep asking for top ups of tea and coffee where this is usually free flowing or left on your table. There was no Xmas music playing which would have given more of an atmosphere.
Service, can be a bit slow. You ask for something and have to wait. The table, next to us, waited nearly 30 minutes, for a bottle of wine. The food, is very good.
Service is quite slow. Had festive afternoon tea & was a little dissatisfied as did not receive everything, as advertised. But what was given was really enjoyable.
VIP treatment at a restaurant with a great view although festive lunch was rather basic lacking the wow factor.
My Son and his Girlfriend went on Saturday 16th and had a lovely meal service was first class
Long weight for food
We went to celebrate our sons Birthdays as we had a flight from Southend the following morning. The food was really good and the staff were friendly. However, our side dishes were brought out 15 minutes before our meals and were cold and mostly gone before our mains arrived. Our youngest childs meal still hasnt arrived 10 minutes after ours and there was no communication unless we chased them. I complained on the night three times and was just told that things were being plated or they apologised. It was an expensive meal and we were very disappointed with the standard of service.
Very disappointed that we had to pay £6.00 to park we believe this charge to be totally unacceptable we shouldn't have to pay to park for the privilege of paying you to dine in your restaurant will not be coming back due to this
