I had takeaway cod and chips last Thursday night and walked along Southend prom savouring them before ascending to the Cliffs Pavilion to see Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Band. The cod was thick and flaky, and the chips just right. I don't get some of the reviews on here: the food was great, and the guy who... More

Marriott's "No1 full English" is the traditional deep fried version with a half tomato (fried) the only nod towards healthy eating. But who goes for a fried breakfast expecting any different? Service was friendly and yes, the owner does stand outside smoking much of the time but overall this delivered all we expected - an average English seaside breakfast

I would advise anyone to steer clear of this place, the staff are incredibly rude, what appears to be the manager cannot refrain from smoking outside where many people are eating. I ordered the roast, the whole dinner just tasted bland, more than likely microwaved and the roast potatoes were 100% deep fat fried. Cannot understand how this resturant is... More

i am really surprised to read negative reviews of this restaurant. We were greeted warmly, our order was taken and brought to our table, freshly cooked, extremely efficiently. The food was delicious - beautifully thin batter coating some succulent haddock. I asked for 'haddock without chips' and was offered a freshly made mixed salad, lovely and crisp with a very... More

Slow service, could do with a good clean! As could the manager/owner who kept smoking while we waited for our meals. Fish was soggy and tasteless chips not cooked properly, waited ages only to be very disappointed. Try somewhere else !

Went down Southend today and fancied some food. Dropped into Marriot's to eat and i must say was really surprised how good the food was, we did not have to wait very long even though they were busy, the portion size were great value for money, would cost a lot more in London for a smaller portion. The staff were... More

Have been to Marriots now at least 10 times and so far never had a bad experience, the fish is always fresh (I am very fussy about my Cod, before I found Marriots I would drive 25 miles frequently to visit a place that had nice cod) the chips are fine, the portion size is very good for the price....
