AA Rosette Restaurant

Experience fine dining, the freshest ingredients and first class food experts at its best at the Roslin Hotel restaurant, an AA Rosette restaurant set in the heart of this beautiful hotel. With a menu that marries comfort food favourites with seasonal British flavours, recipes that go back generations are revived for the present and paired with world-class vintages from a wine list among the best in Essex.

Seasonal menus are created around high-quality local produce, fresh local fish and the best available free-range meats. Head Chef Elton Thompson always ensures there is a wide variety of enticing dishes to tempt lovers of superb food and to excite and satisfy even the most discerning of palates. The resulting menu celebrates the tastes and textures of the most stunning individual produce, prepared in a way that allows each ingredient to shine.

The Roslin is renowned for exceptional cuisine, the greatest attention to detail served in front of the most beautiful backdrop; Thorpe Bay beach. Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb, Fresh Lobster Thermidor and Rolled Rabbit Loin are just few of the delights on offer, which has made the Roslin a favourite amongst the residents of Southend and further afield. Sunday lunch, offering the best in local roast traditional meats and carefully planned enticing dishes, in a wonderful casual setting, is a local favourite and highly recommended (pre-booking is required to avoid disappointment).

For arguably the best views of the Thames estuary in the area, our enclosed terrace provides an ideal opportunity to unwind with friends and family whilst experiencing the spectacular sunsets that Southend has to offer. Even after the sun has gone down and the patio heaters go on, indulge yourself with some al fresco dining and a few light tapas from our Terrace menu, which is served well into the evening and complimented with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc.

The beach can be glimpsed through the semi-circular paned glass windows; drawing visitors into the heart of the restaurant to exclaim with joy at the unexpected vision that unfolds before them. This, complimented by a panoramic al-fresco terrace offers a calm tranquil atmosphere for guests to enjoy the delights the culinary team have lovingly prepared.

Above all, what makes Rushes at the Roslin so very special, is the people dedicated to serving each and every guest with warmth and dedication. A testament to their incredible passion and talent, the restaurant was recently awarded the coveted Visit England Rose Award, one of only a hundred restaurants to be awarded this accolade across the country.

The Roslin cocktail bar, with an innovative drinks list full of en vogue flavours, provides the perfect vantage point for people watching and lighter bites. The eclectic mix of world famous wines and aperitifs are carefully selected to compliment the gastronomical flair and passion of each dish.

Please note our sample menus are seasonal and therefore subject to change. A discretionary service charge of 10% is charged to each bill.

Please Note

‘2016 brings continued growth to our hotel with the launch of our fantastic new function room. Construction work will be commencing on January 4th.
We will try our very best to limit disruption to our guests and noise levels should only be raised between the times of 9am-5pm. We have carefully planned this project to limit the disruption as best we can and have carefully thought of timings and room locations. If you require a lay-in or are sleeping through the day please let the hotel know and we will do our very best to allocate you in a room further away from our upgrade work.
We appreciate your patience whilst we undergo this transformation. ’
