San Fairie Ann restaurant and Cocktail Lounge
San Fairie Ann cocktail bar and lounge is a shabby chic fine dining emporium, and one of Southend’s little secrets. This year, the long established restaurant found its niche with a new look and a new name, and it’s already receiving complimentary reviews for its ambience, service and excellent food.
Executive chef Raoul Speakman, innovative pastry chef Harriet Austin, and owner Sonia Edwards, invite you to enjoy fine dining in a relaxed, friendly environment. The team has crafted a range of delicious menus – breakfast, coffee and cake, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and late night supper are all served throughout the week, alongside gluten-free and vegetarian cuisine. The venue specialises in hosting wedding, family and corporate parties, with a private room and private bar available to hire.
Raoul sources ingredients as locally as possible, and values ethical produce. His menu celebrates the natural, nutritious food of the earth, emphasising the healing and nourishing properties of certain foods, both for our bodies and for the environment. The proof is in the pudding; one of Britain’s leading national broadsheets referred to the restaurant as ‘the pearl of Essex’, having sampled the award-winning Sunday roast rump of beef.
Dining here is an experience that extends beyond the ordinary; San Fairie Ann is a place to discover refined, modern cooking in Essex.
