At Aurum, our cuisine celebrates the best of Essex and the UK and is located in the heart of Southend-on-Sea. Our 60 seater restaurant is open all day for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. We take care to collaborate with local suppliers and producers to preserve their traditions and heritage. We follow the cycle of the seasons to bring regional cuisine and, hopefully, preserving what Nature intended. We constantly source and develop our ingredients and techniques to bring high quality, fresh and flavourful dishes to our table.
Our menu at Aurum uses the best of the season’s produce and is locally sourced. We aim for it to be a combination of refined gastronomy with delicious flavour but, importantly, for it to be healthy, balanced and exciting for the eye, as well as the palate.
Sit back in elegance and watch the world on Clifton Terrace go by, whatever the season. Relax and be confident that at Seven Hotel we know the meaning of customer service and will constantly strive to create a memorable experience for our valued guests.
