Our delighted customers share their experience of dining at Aurum with you

"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 the 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!"

Sally Higgins

"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 it's 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!"
