Book Your Place


We will explicitly follow the Government guidelines that are under constant review.

Aurum Restaurant and Bar

A face covering must be worn when entering the Restaurant and Bar and can only be removed once seated at a table. Please note, once seated, we are unable to allow guest to move tables. Rule 6 will apply.

We are operating a Table Service only and therefore if no tables are vacant in the bar, we ask that guests order drinks to their room using room service. (A 10% service charge will apply). At no time can guests order drinks standing at the bar.

Aurum Restaurant will be serving an A la Carte menu from Thursday to Saturday from 12:00 midday and to be able to adhere to our legal obligations, we will take last orders at 20:30 and all guests dining in the Restaurant and Bar will be asked to leave shortly before 22:00.  We offer a Sunday Roast which begins at midday until last orders at 18:15.

Bar facilities are available for in house guests in guest rooms only after 10.00 pm.

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.

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.  All necessary PPE equipment will be provided to our staff and we will be checking the temperatures of our staff on a regular basis to minimise the risk of infection.

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.

Arrival & Check In

As you arrive at the hotel, there will be a number of signs to adhere to the social distancing measures provided by the Government. We will also be using your contact details for the Government Track & Trace programme.  We are at liberty to hold your details for 3 weeks to comply with this government request. All guests who enter the hotel will have to wear a face covering when moving around the hotel or will be asked to leave. You will see that all of our staff will be wearing face masks or face shields. We politely ask for guests to stick to the directional floor signs and queuing with the appropriate distance. Protective screens will be used at guest and employee contact points for safer check-in. Throughout the hotel there will be sanitising stations and we ask that these are used as frequently as possible.  We encourage guests who are staying with us at the Seven Hotel to use the bathrooms in your bedrooms when possible to reduce congestion.

Please ensure that all your special requirements are requested in advance i.e. non feather pillows, twin beds, extra beds, baby cots etc. It will be difficult to accommodate additional requests on arrival as staff will not be allowed to access your room once you have checked in.

This menu is available until 9.30 pm daily with the exception of Sunday when the Sunday menu is only available until 6.15 pm. Outside of these hours there is a limited room service menu available.

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!"
