Taking its name from an archaeological find in the fields it overlooks, The Saxon King in Southend-On-Sea is a pub and restaurant specialising in rotisserie chicken and pub classics. It boasts a large beer garden and indoor and outdoor play areas for the kids.

The Saxon King menu features a range of rotisserie chickens with a choice of sides and sauces, as well as delicious gourmet burgers, including wild boar and chorizo with Monterey Jack cheese and barbecue sauce. Guests can even build their own burgers with their choice of meat, cheese, sauce and toppings.

Desserts at Saxon King are delightfully indulgent with honeycomb sundae, pecan tart and Irish cream and caramel cheesecake all on offer. Lighter bites, salads and sandwiches are also available, as well as a ‘Little Monsters’ menu for the kids.

Just 2 miles from the beach, The Saxon King pub is a 10-minute walk from Prittlewell Train Station.

    Food was very good. The starters tiger tops were big enough for two, so be careful. The main - I had gammon my other half had 1/2 chicken with sides. Massive! Very nice and would recommend the food.
    The service was ok and the surroundings are a bit tired and could do with a spruce up.

    Easy online booking, friendly waitress, extremely varied menu and lovely food. The main courses seemed to take a while to arrive but that's the only quibble. Had a great family evening with all of us happy with the food and venue, no mean feat!

    Booking easy, staff very nice and friendly, food hot and tasty. Unfortunately we had an hour wait for starter then another hour wait for mains so was passed being hungry and couldnt eat my dinner. We did get complementary drinks and a little of the bill. Overall very good. Just the long wait let it down.

    The meal from starter through to main was very nice, the waitress who served us was helpful and very prompt. We were unable to stay for desert as we had get home as we were waiting for a call from the gas board.

    We always go the the Saxon King as it is our favourite Restuarant,I cannot say very much about it except that the food always excellent and we even take our Frends
