We would firstly like to Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback.
We value all our customers and if there is any thing we miss on a visit we love the opportunity to rectify this and for this not to happen again.
Our Specials run Friday's from 6pm through to Sunday every weekend to which we have a printed menu given out at Breakfast for Brunch Specials and then Lunch Time Special's too. During the weekdays we sometimes have Specials, these should be informed when seated.

We have brought this to our staff's attention to ensure this doesn't not happen again. Every table should have the same options when dining if items are available for service.

We do hope to see you again, we value your custom.

Many Thanks

The Beach Hut

Went here today for brunch. We have 2 young children who were welcomed and staff were fantastic, so friendly and efficient. The view was amazing as the building sits on top of the beach, and the children loved to watch the boats. Blankets on back of the chairs were a nice touch too. We had blueberry pancakes, scrambled eggs on toast and poached eggs and mushrooms on toast between the four of us, which were all absolutely delicious and lovely hot creamy coffees and hot chocs with marshmallows for the children to watch alongside the choppy sea. Can't wait to go back!

Well this has to be a first. Despite having empty tables both inside and out the Beach Hut were, apparently, too busy to serve us unless we were sitting down to lunch. As a party of six who had already found seats outside I'd have thought we'd have been able to place a sizeable enough order. But no. They were too busy to serve 'just drinks'.

Dear Simon

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about a recent visit you intended to have with us.
We welcome tables of all sizes to have a coffee, just an ice cream what ever you wish and by no means do you have to have a full lunch to have a table.

We would like to ask when you tried to dine with us?
We take reservations 7 days a week (except Sunday Breakfast) and seat up to the booking time were possible to ensure we have the table ready for booking but not open for to long before. We do go on a waiting list on the day for tables to move from inside to decking and we some times have to hold a table if needed to be added to other for a larger table coming in within a short time frame.

We allow dogs on our decking but not inside, not sure if you had dog on the day?

With our Lease we can only serve alcohol with a food offering and this can be any thing from an ice cream, Olives, Bread Board or just a slice of Cake.

We value all our customers and wanted to clear any miss understanding that has happened. If you would like to discuss further we are more than happy to hear from you.

Regards

The Beach Hut

We came here for an evening meal, 7 of us while in Southend for a business meeting.

The food was really good, I had the moules mariners for a starter and the mussels were some of the nicest and plumpest I've had. The main was really good. No one from our party had a bad word to say. The staff were attentive and friendly, the views were great especially with the tide in, I would definitely recommend the restaurant.
