About

The Britannia is an iconic location within Southend-on-Sea, with a rich history to match.

The Britannia was originally built in 1793 and was used as a residence until 1841. Between 1841 and 1854, it was converted into a hotal a public house to accommodate Southend’s rising visitor numbers. The building has become an iconic location within Southend’s community, known by multiple generations for one of its many faces all of which contributing to it’s rich history.

In 2016 the building was purchased by Stockvale, who were eager to restore the Britannia to its former glory however the dangerous conditions caused complications. Eager to preserve the building’s rich heritage, the front of the building was maintained whilst the renovations works took place. A full restoration began of the exterior and interior finally re-opened in September 2019 and open as a high-quality, fish & chip restaurant.
