Southchurch lies between the Kursaal and Thorpe Bay. It’s very much a working retail area, but has many independent outlets with an eclectic selection of gifts. You can also find a wide selection of restaurants and pubs. Why not try Grumpy's Diner, where you can experience 50’s America, or Monti’s, to enjoy the taste of Italy - Southend Style. Or if you want fantastic traditional food, visit the Exchange, a converted bank. Coffee and cake are available at Aunt Sally’s. You can also walk down to our seafront; to Billy 100’s for seafood tapas and Ocean Beach for family friendly dining, on the beach.
