Aurum Restaurant

At the Seven Hotel

dine in elegant luxury

Aurum restaurant is presided over by Head Chef Simon Webb. An elegantly restrained palette sets the backdrop for lush interior styling. The result is one of Southend-On-Sea's most alluring and captivating restaurants.

A contemporary and irresistible menu based around the finest and freshest organic ingredients paired with a wine selection that exudes classic heritage and exciting discovery.

Our 70 seater restaurant is open all day for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. We take care to source produce from local suppliers and producers to preserve their traditions and heritage. Our menu follows the cycle of the seasons to bring regional cuisine and locks in the taste that Nature intended. We constantly source and develop our ingredients and techniques to bring high quality, fresh and flavourful dishes to your 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.
