UPDATE – COVID-19
Over the past few months we have all faced very uncertain times but we are now delighted to say that we will be re-opening from Monday 17th May 2021.
We want to assure all of our guests and employees that we will be undertaking strict health and safety measures before and throughout your visit to ensure that you can stay at the Seven Hotel and relax in style. We will explicitly follow the Government guidelines that are under constant review.
We would ask that all guests adhere to the current government guidelines and observe social distancing at all times and wear face masks when walking around the hotel.
In order to understand the new ‘normal’ and make your visit as enjoyable and safe as possible, we will ensure that you are aware of all of the new safety procedures that will be put in place before your arrival.
Our whole hotel will be terminally cleaned and sanitised to the highest standard. We politely ask all of our guests to not enter the premises if you have suspected possible COVID-19 symptoms or if you have come into contact with a suspected COVID-19 carrier.
Aurum Restaurant will be re-opening on the 17th May 2021. We have a wide selection of delicious dishes for you to enjoy and all of our menus are available on line. If you would like the menus emailed to you, then please contact Aurum Restaurant and this can be done for you.
The Seven Hotel bar will be open with the Government recommended restrictions in place. All of our bar team will undergo strict health and safety training to ensure that the service that is provided is as safe as possible. All of our bar staff will be wearing the relevant PPE equipment to maintain hygiene standards.
Table service only is available as per the Government guidelines.
Please note that any drinks or food that you have during your stay must be paid for at the time of your order. We are unable to allow anything to be charged to your room. There will be a tray charge of £3.00 for any orders that are requested for the room.
The terrace area is available for drinks and for food from our Terrace Menu. Last orders on the terrace is 8.00 pm and the terrace must be vacated by 9.00 pm due to our current licensing restrictions.
Employee Safety Initiatives
We want to reassure all of our guests at the Seven Hotel that all of our employees will undergo comprehensive health & safety training to maintain our high standards.

We will continue to review all of the procedures frequently and align with the Government guidelines.
Finally, we would like to say thank you to all of our guests who have stayed with us previously and new guests who we look forward to meeting very soon in the future. We appreciate your continued support and we very much look forward to staying safe with you in the weeks and months ahead.

Our adjoining gin-centric bar, which features over 30 types of gin, is the perfect place to start or end your evening with us.
OUR DELIGHTED CUSTOMERS SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCE OF DINING AT AURUM WITH YOU
“I WAS IN FOOD HEAVEN”
“I cannot recommend the restaurant highly enough. The ambience is perfect, the decor is styled with attention to detail of all the soft furnishings, lighting, wall coverings all reminiscent of a luxury Dubai hotel, chic but understated.
The food was exceptional. The show stopper for me being the monkfish cheek slider, followed by the scallop starter, I was in food heaven. The fish was cooked to perfection. I had the chicken for my main with blackened garlic sauce and roasted endive, again cooked perfectly.
The desserts were delicious, my favourite being the yoghurt parfait. I cannot wait to return and share this experience with my other friends.”
“A BREATH OF FRESH AIR”
“We have been waiting in anticipation for the launch of Aurum and were lucky enough to be invited for the pre-launch. Aurum’s decor, ambience and friendly staff are a breath of fresh air for anyone looking for something a little bit more special in Southend.
The staff gave us a warm welcome and were very helpful indeed. The restaurant has a great mix of stylish booths for large groups and cosy corners to sip delicious cocktails and indulge in a special meal.
The talented chef has definitely given some love and attention to the menu and the Seabass is a must, don’t just take my word for it, give it a try! Keep up the good work and congratulations to the whole team. “
“I WAS IN FOOD HEAVEN”
“We had the most divine experience at Aurum, it is an incredibly glamorous restaurant with spectacular views, especially from the terrace. The bar is very cosy and stylish but the main attraction is definitely Aurum restaurant, we had the best three course meal and luscious cocktails.
This restaurant is definitely a wonderful haven to escape to from your daily life. The food ambience and service has been masterfully executed and the superior provenance of the ingredients and the chef’s culinary skills shone through all three courses of our meal!”
“REFINED DINING AT IT’S BEST!”
“We were excited to visit Aurum restaurant in Southend yesterday and were amazed by its modern decor and well-thought layout. It had a lovely atmosphere with the most friendly & service driven staff. Set in a perfect location on the Thames estuary, this is refined dining at it’s best!
“As for the food itself at Aurum, the freshness and flavours take it into a sublime league of its own. We were especially delighted by the monkfish and charcoal bun, which was simply mouth-watering. Thank you Aurum for a memorable experience, we will definitely be back!”
