“12 taps and 70+ cans and bottles, mainly from the UK but the occasional from the US or Europe. Nice pizza menu and very friendly staff who put hospitality before anything.“

“A modern looking place in the town centre and not far from the beach. They have a quality 12 tap selection and around 50 awesome cans and bottles from mainly UK breweries plus some special imports. A slightly pricey comfort food menu, but beer prices were reasonable for what was on offer. Friendly and very helpful service. The “go-to” beer place in Southend.“

“One of the larger 'Spoons I've been to, but also one of the worst. It's fairly open-plan, resulting in little atmosphere and noise carrying across the pub. Even on a Monday at 4pm in the middle of winter we struggled to find a table. The clientele were extremely rowdy across the pub, making it difficult to have a meal in peace. There were eight handpumps serving the national Wetherspoon list - no local beers and sadly no Essex ticks for me. On the plus side, the staff were friendly and efficient and the food (cheap as ever) arrived quickly and was well cooked (albeit missing a couple of components which were to be fair quickly brought by staff on request). Overall it did the job that we needed - providing a cheap, quick meal - but the clientele definitely made it a less pleasant experience than most pubs in the chain.“

“If you’re unlucky enough to find yourself in Southend then this is a good place to visit. Modern feel, friendly service and a good place to tick a George’s Brewery beer.“

“Visited on a warm August Friday night in 2015. Place is just around the corner from Central station. It’s a long single room bar with patio at the rear. Described as Bohemian, with veggie and vegan food. It’s got a nice feel to it. A live band were about to start when I arrived, 4 casks beers on which took a little while to get served but in good condition. Bottle selection I noted on the way out included some US bottles although nothing out of the ordinary. It’s worth a look. It’s a nice old pub and handy for the station. In a town of little choice this is one of the better places.“

“Visited on a Friday evening in August 2015 after a wander around the beer desert that is Southend. Only 3 beers on tap. Prices decent and efficient service. It’s a really nice pub. Modern. Tiled floor and lots of places to relax. Handy for both stations. A little oasis of beer and calm.“

“Visited on a Friday night in August 2015. Huge Spoons between two streets a couple of mins from Central Station. Two bars snd a new hotel. Service was really quick. Less than £2.50 a pint. Decent range of ales on plus usual craft daft plus curry and chips for £3.99. Smart place. Nice beer garden. Pretty busy. One if the better Spoons I’ve been to.“

“A JD Wetherspoon pub and rated as such. Visited as the second pub in a crawl on the evening of 23rd December 2014. Lively, boisterous good-humoured crowd in this large venue. Friendly staff and I found the service to be fairly swift given the number of customers. My food order was processed promptly. From a range advertised to include at least two locally produced cask ales I enjoyed a well-kept pint of Wibblers Apprentice. As a JDW standard pub, the Last Post is one of their better establishments, being one of only two listed for Southend in Camra’s Good Beer Guide 2015 which I have just received for Christmas. There were three in last year’s edition, thankfully the right two are listed in the new Guide - this pub and the Olde Trout Tavern.“

“I loved this place. Visited on 23rd December 2013 having discovered it in Camra’s Good Beer Guide. Easy to find with its high street location and proximity with Southend Victoria rail station. Staff very friendly. On my visit I learned that the GBG’s evening food symbol was a misprint, landlady was very apologetic and invited me to join in free sandwiches at the bar. Alewise, you’ll find four real ales on handpump, one of which is brewed exclusively for them by George’s/HopMonster - Trout Ale. I particularly enjoyed this pint, well kept, clean and refreshing. Fairly large tables in the bar area, and the bar itself is a friendly place to perch up if you’re on your own. A restaurant on the 1st floor is open lunchtimes from 1200 to 1500 and can be hired for functions. A pleasant relaxed and convivial atmosphere to be found within the Olde Trout. Visitors to Southend will find this pub amongst the best the town offers. I recommend a visit.“
