The Seven Hotel, 7 Clifton Terrace, Southend-on-Sea, SS1 1DT

Indulge in an afternoon tea trip down memory lane at The Seven Hotel

Afternoon tea is served Friday & Saturday 12.00 – 15.00

The exquisite Afternoon Tea at Aurum Restaurant is a nostalgic trip through Southend’s elegant past. Traditional finger sandwiches, with an array of fillings and breads, are followed by home baked warm scones, both fruit and plain, with clotted cream and Tiptree jams. The homemade cakes and pastries tell a timeless story of a promenade along the seafront, all with unlimited tea and coffee, including loose leaf by ‘The English Tea Company’. Sophistication and refinement, with a contemporary twist, along with unrivaled views of the Estuary are all to be discovered at the Seven Hotel’s Afternoon Tea.

Please feel free to upgrade your Afternoon Tea with a glass of Taittinger Champagne, Prosecco, and Gancia Rose.
