This is a great place for all people - students, families for lunch and the older people that like to sit in pubs all day and watch football (of which there are plenty here!). The food and drink are relatively cheap, the atmosphere is good (90% of the time), and you are allowed children in while you eat, though apparently you have to leave within half an hour of finishing your food (we left after about 45/50 minutes and there was no problem). The staff are mostly cheerful and happy to help. If you go in the evening make sure to have your I.D with you as there are bouncers on both doors.

The food is usually quite quick and always nice - people have said their steak wasn't cooked how they wanted it a few times but my food has always been nice :)

Thank Natalie H

Inside is huge and very different. There are boxes in different seating arrangements. Our box had like an old washioned library, with old books inside. There are larger tables for more of you, but those around other tables. The service is fast. Lunchtime was fast, friendly and efficient. I couldn't get internet connection first, so one of the stuff, showed me how to download the app and helped me set up, explained about it, signed up and was ready to go. Food, the Large Breakfast is fab, really large size and only costs £4.30. Children menu incl. a drink and a bag of fresh fruit for £3.99 Spagetti Bolognese my son's favourite (hot drink doesn't include!). They run out of Rib-Eye steak, had Angus Steak instead, had to buy sauce with it, requested well done, but was too dry when reached my table. Steak meals you get a free deink. In general would recommend to others and would return again. Very friendly stuff, good atmosphere. Great choice of menu.

Been there handful times and can't complain. Busy on the weekends so decent atmosphere. Cheap drink deals also go down a treat. Understand the reviews about dirtiness but not to bad, just sticky tables and empty glasses as its under staffed. I wouldn't think this is a deal breaker. Big screen in there I'd imagine for sporting events aswell. I wouldn't eat there personally but god spot for a few cheeky drinks

This is a Wetherspoons house in the centre of Southend. Its very large with two separate bars and a good range of beers ( they were holding their "beer festival" when we went so the range of beers was very large ( they also do 1/3 pints at these festivals so you can enjoy 3 real ales for the price of a pint!)

As it's a Wetherspoons house don't expect cordon bleu food - what you get is good pub grub at very reasonable prices and quickly served.

Well worth a visit if you enjoy real ale (they're in the Good Beer Guide again this year!)
