This week we returned to San Fairie Ann, Southend-On-Sea.
Our first visit was by chance really, I searched on google ‘quirky places to eat in southend’ and it popped up at the top.
Immediately, I booked a table for us for Sunday Lunch. The pictures of the food and the interior on google reviews sold it for me. It is most definitely quirky.
This restaurant is a mix up of vintage and modern.
As you enter the restaurant you’ll see a baby piano, a table for 2 with a chess board, Queen Ann & balloon back chairs, wax candles in glass bottles, vintage clothes hanging from the walls and ceiling, copper pots hanging on the exposed brickwork, the list of amazing eye treats is endless.
All the time I was there, I wanted to explore the entire restaurant.
The staff have been great on the 2 occasions we have eaten there and clearly know what customer service is about. Thank you.
On our first visit to San Fairie Ann I had Sunday pork with delicious side dishes including parsnips. Our favourite.
The gravy was mouthwatering too. I had a second helping of that!
On the second occasion we visited I had a vegetarian meal which was a butternut squash dish, that too tasted delicious.
I spent ages admiring the silver sugar pot on our table with tongs to use for adding one lump or two of sugar in your tea.
The display of vintage cake stands, beautiful large lamps with lamp shades fit for a boudoir along with stunning chandeliers.
Mark took a liking to the British Airways napkins that were on each place setting. Upcycling I called it.
This restaurant has a really relaxed feel about it. It’s honestly a great place to go for some great food and a bit of the past in the present.
This fine dining restaurant is tucked away on Alexandra street which is two minutes walk from Southend town centre.
I wish I had heard of it sooner.
