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
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
Reserved a table 10 days prior and was stuck in the corner next to kitchen .. drinks slow .. service slow .. once meals arrived was barely Luke warm .. waitress offered to replace but by the time got it my husband had finished his dinner. When came to pay bill found we had been charged for somebody else’s dessert! Did get a glass of wine free of charge from waitress who seemed embarrassed but did spoil start of our holiday. Disappointed.
Food good, service good, ideal for pre flight meal!
I have always had excellent food & service at this venue.
Very nice food
Service was excellent, lovely views but food was a little disappointing. Was good value as we had a 20% off voucher. Would go again.
Very well presented food in a lovely setting overlooking the runways. Which at night are sparkling with colour. The restaurant is clean bright and very well presented. The staff service you extremely well and are smart and cleanly dressed with smiles too. We will come back for our next Anniversary no doubt.
All very nice thank you!
Third time here and have lovely food and service. The dessert could have been just a little bit bigger especially the cheesecake. Would still go again though.
I would like to thank all the staff for making the lunch with my friends to celebrate my birthday such a great experience. The room looked amazing and everything went really well. Can’t thank you enough! Without exception everyone had a wonderful time.
Service excellent, starter and main very good. Pudding was awful I had the lemon meringue pie and it was the worse I have ever eaten. Coffee was tepid and basically tasted like dishwater not coffee and at £2.75 was way overpriced.
Good meal and reasonably priced.
Service was very slow considering wasn’t busy . Sea bass was a little too dry. Apart from that lovely clean restaurant
We were a party of 6 celebrating our daughters 50th birthday. Table was decorated, birthday card from staff on table plus complementary bottle of wine. Great food and service. Chef provided gluten free cake with 50th birthday display, which staff brought to table singing "Happy Birthday". Many thanks to everyone!
Really good food made our first anniversary very special thank you
The restaurant can be noisy due to the layout & design. The service was a bit slow. Ours was not to bad but we noticed others waiting quite a while, although it was pretty busy, for a Thursday night. The last couple of times I have been there the menu has been limited, i.e. Rosette one unavailable, which is a shame. But overall had a good evening
Took my mum for afternoon tea, asked for some of the sandwiches to be changed & it wasn’t a problem. Lovely afternoon.
We went into the restaurant to see if we could book a table for lunch that same day and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful to get us in,we also asked if we could have a table by the window again nothing was too much trouble. I must say the food was fantastic and £20 for three courses was amazing. The customer service was excellent and will definitely be going back there.
Lovely dinner, great atmosphere
