Desperately looking for the circular white bridge with no luck and ended up in here for a quick drink before closing. Masses of seating and helpful staff. It looked a fabulous seaside pub!

This is a wonderful restaurant in the middle of Southend-on-sea, with delicious food. The fish pie is amazing and service is very good.
