The Rose Inn
Wakering Road, Great Wakering, Southend-on-Sea, SS3 0PY
Looking for a quality pub that serves mouth-watering food, situated in the calm of the countryside? Well, look no further than The Rose Inn in Great Wakering. Found just ten minutes outside town, this attractive eating house will provide for your every need, whether you're craving a sumptuous meal or a quick pint. Once you've stepped inside, you'll feel like you've been transported back to the turn of the 1800s - a charming illusion created by original wooden beams, low ceilings and an overall traditional ambience. You'll agree, however, that the pub is as cosy as it is historical. Why not relax over a drink and a bite to eat while your little ones make the most of the large family garden? Every true British pub offers a wide range of Cask Marque ales, and The Rose Inn is no exception. Or, if you prefer wine, there's a first-class wine menu which features great labels from around the world - red, white, rosé and Champagne are all present and correct. Meanwhile, the food served is simply stunning; no wonder customers from all over the county regularly seek it out. Alongside gourmet burgers, steak grills and sandwiches is an enticing specials board, while on Sundays the traditional roast is unmissable, and, with two courses for £11, an absolute bargain.
