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 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

Unfortunately the service was terrible. We had a night at the hotel (unknown to the staff) but if we were getting the train home we would have missed it despite being one of the first three tables to be seated. We waited 45 mins for our starter. Three different members of staff apologised and said there was an issue in the kitchen. At the end of the evening we waited between 40 and 50 minutes for the bill. We felt ignored and forgotten about. We had a voucher for our meal and wondered if staff felt we didn’t matter as we were not paying for our food. Whoever gave us the voucher had paid so this was really disappointing. We paid for coffees and drinks at the bar. We should not have been treated in thjs way.

We had a lovely time however the food was disapointing. There were 5 of us and all 5 meals weren't nice.

Food was excellent. The lighting in the restaurant could have been a little less bright. We had to wait quite a while for our food but the quality made up for it. Just a little thing to highlight was the chairs in the restaurant could do with a good clean. The view of the airport was very nice. We will definitely go again.

Quality and comfort of room comparable, if not better, to airport hotels at Gatwick and Heathrow and half the price. Staff were very friendly and it’s a two minute walk from the terminal. Great start to your holiday.

Visited many times and cannot fault setting, food or service. Had a couple of little issues with ordering wine but quickly resolved. Recently we held a family pre-funeral meal and reception with refreshments later in the day. Faultless in every way. We were really well looked after. Lunches all enjoyed and made a sad day very special. Of all the IAG hotels we use and their associated restaurants, this one far outweighs the others.

Service was very slow (two courses and nearly exceeded our three hour parking) although attentive to dietary needs. Chairs looked quite stained and off putting. Requested view but none at all, appreciate not everyone can be near a window but why promote rooftop restaurant if most of what you can see are walls.

The atmosphere, view over the airport and setting is nice. We had opted for afternoon tea to celebrate a friends birthday. I had advised the restaurant in advance and also when we arrived about dietary requirements (one pescatarian) but the food turned up with sausage rolls and limited sandwich options. There was also an excessive amount of desserts, not cakes, as expected for afternoon tea.

Overall a wonderful evening for my mum’s 70th birthday celebration. Staff were very accommodating and attentive and food was delicious. The only negative point was the food availability for the vegan diners in my party, there was no choice and the courses that were offered were, although nice, not to the standard of the rest of our meals, they were still hungry after eating!! The staff were quick to apologise and took their meals off our bill. I was also told that they will be making better choices available in the future which is great.

Nice venue calm, quiet & bright, nice bar with comfortable seating & views across the airport & surrounding area. Service was good, staff were attentive & helpful. The only thing was that we asked for time between courses & it was a bit quick. Good value 4 meals for the price of 3 on Sundays. The deserts were a bit lacking..... 2 choices or cheese & biscuits at a supplement. Apple crumble offered was a small pastry tart with small amount of apple & crumble on the top....that’s not apple crumble!!!! Overall the food was good & we will definitely visit again as we live nearby.
