First visit for me, but I’d heard good things and was looking forward to going. My friend and I both had roast dinners of beef and lamb. The food was delicious and cooked perfectly and the side were generous. The staff were attentive and friendly....My only one gripe is that we only got one slice of meat. When you’re paying £16/£18 I don’t think it’s too much to expect two slices of meat, especially as it’s often the star of the show! This would make me think twice about returning as my husband wouldn’t be pleased with just one slice of meat in his plate. Shame, as otherwise it’s perfect!More

Thankyou for making our first family outing since our dear Ma has become unwell so special. Delicious food, lovely service, atmosphere & surroundings. Thankyou for the extra help you gave us too. We would love to come again.

We had a great lunch here yesterday with friends. My partner is gluten intolerant and a vegetarian which can prove problematic. The manager was more than helpful and knew his menu inside out and was able to provide off menu. She was even given more...than one choice. She got an amazing dish - goats cheese in a stuffed mushroom with a killer salad. Would definitely come back again.More

Down in Southend for a long weekend decided to look for Sunday lunch, our B&B owners suggested the “Shoe” as other guests had used this pub. We managed to get a late booking, but thought it must be good as it’s very popular. We arrived...20 minutes early but the staff said that’s not a problem we have a table ready. We ordered the beef and lamb. We waited 45 minutes before it arrived , the meal was cold but looked stunning. I soldiered on with my lamb but my husbands beef was very fatty and enjoyed fighting with the knife. If you like peas as a veg option your in luck as there were lots an lots of peas a couple of snap peas and 2 courgettes. The waiter did apologise for the lateness of the meal but didn’t say why?? I couldn’t fault the restaurant as it was decorated well and seating and tables were great but it was open to the bar and was very loud, but he place is very busy and has a lot of locals so if it’s an intimate meal your after I don’t think this is the place.

I reviewed this place in June and was looking forward to coming back and thank goodness I made the effort. I had an absolutely lovely roast, the food was excellent the service was excellent and all in all I’m putting this as my top place...to eat. The restaurant was busy with a great atmosphere nobody was rushed but everything arrived when it should, lovely linen tablecloths, comfortable seats the Shoeburyness Hotel ticked every box highly recommend it. 😊More

We can never fault the food when we eat here - last weeks’ lunch was no exception. I had a monkfish kebab wrapped in bacon with a green salsa topping and mixed salad from the specials board - the monkfish was cooked perfectly - I...hate when restaurants leave the thin sinew on monkfish and I always order with trepidation- no worries here - delicious and huge chunks of fish - really good value for £9.95. My wife had a beautifully presented goats cheese salad which was delicious. More dishes like the monkfish skewer would be great!More

Yes I’ve seen dogs inside pretty much every time I’ve been in the pub. I think it’s only on the pub side though not the restaurant.
