A bif fan of Wetherspoons pubs and this one did not dissapoint. Was a lovely big setting and the staff were quick to serve you even though it was really busy. One of the better pubs we stumbled across in Southend.

Pub was nice, the food was delicious..the bar staff let the side down. Tables were not cleared, even after someone had changed a baby's nappy. Waited ages to get served and then felt like you were putting them out for wanting a drink. Not overly impressed.

Nipped in after trying a few other places that weren't serving food at 11am. Nice spot and kid friendly. Food was lovely and at reasonable price. Service was excellent the couldn't have been more accommodating.

Ordered the managers special 'Flaming Dragon Curry' If you are into your curries and you like them hot, this is a must to have. This was hotter than some Vindaloo curries I've had in Indian restaurants. What makes it better, is not only is the food lovely but also plentiful, and as ever in JD Weatherspoons the price is excellent.... More

Called in for a bite to eat around 8pm and was surprised they serve until 11pm. Menu is ok so ordered two steak and ale pies. The pies were fine, the chips seemed a little dried out like they were being kept warm. The mash was not great and the gravy a little bit watery . Can't complain though as... More

Usually sticky bar surfaces, always packed, terribly hot during the summer to the point your balls will stick to your leg. Staff are friendly, bouncers seem fine, cocktails are awesome. One time I went I saw a naked guy getting dragged out by two bounces, 10/10 would visit again.
