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

Cuisine: British

Two old schoolpals enjoyed such a great weekday lunch at the 1935 rooftop restaurant - with superb food and faultless service, plus stunning views - that we've booked a return for the pre-Christmas festive lunch.

Came here for dinner last night with a group of 6 of us and a 4 year old. Staff were incredibly accommodating right from booking on Facebook to the whole meal yesterday. So child friendly, polite and helpful. We were sat in our own area with a door out to the terrace! (This wasn't extra cost!) Had a Sunday roast and kids menu - pizza and fries. Was delicious, 3 courses for £20! Honestly can't recommend this place enough, our first visit and definitely not our last. Thank you for making our evening Perfect, and thank you for delicious food!

Lovely friendly waitress who seated us - waiter took our order and only downside was I asked what flavor ice cream the chocolate sundae was and was told vanilla so ordered at but when brought up it was chocolate ice cream (wouldn't have ordered it if I knew that) I should have returned it but didn't like to - so probably best the waiter is aware of what is in the sundae

I had previously had afternoon tea with you and was disappointed but not one to give up I thought I would try you again for my birthday afternoon tea with friends. I was very disappointed this time and will not come again.

Service generally very good with knowledgeable and courteous staff. The food was acceptable but not of the best standard - little touches like a hard boiled quail's egg with a grey rim around the yolk (overcooked), undressed rocket, under-seasoned soup. It certainly didn't ruin the experience, but I got the sense the menu is not delivered to the normal Holiday Inn 'spec'.

Special thanks to Anthony on reception and Sup Ghosh in the restaurant for their friendly and outstanding service. Both made us feel very welcome and Anthony in particular went out of his way to accommodate our demands for water and sweets at 1am!!

we all enjoyed the food. and the suroundings. my only little complaint was that two of are party ordered two cups of tea at the end of the meal. they did not come so we told the waitress who said she would sort it out. we waited a further ten minutes and nothing arrived finally i spoke to the resturant manger that we had not recived the tea that we ordered two times .and it did arrive. but it did not put a damper on are evening and would be quite happy to go again...

Great food and service. Canadian waitress was so helpful. We all enjoyed the atmosphere and it was special treat when the Spitfire took off, buzzed around the field and then landed. My 91 year old mother thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing and the Spitfire was a special treat as she served in the RAF during the war. Thank you all.

We have visited the 1935 Restaurant several times and have always had a lovely time. Attentive but not intrusive staff, impeccable service and delicious food. I would highly recommend this restaurant, even if you don't like flying!
