My son and his girlfriend paid for me to have afternoon tea as a birthday present, so i hadn't been here before. The restaurant was lovely the staff were very welcoming and friendly and the food was really nice.
Had a really lovely afternoon.
Would recommend it and hopefully be going back soon.

Amazing restaurant, great food, staff are very attentive always around when needed. From the hostess right to getting the bill at the end cannot fault. The food was to die for can safely say the best around Southend.

Love the bourgee, its our favourite place for a family roast. Food is consistently good and nice to go somewhere with smart decor. Great to see the manager back in southend he's been missed. Would highly recommend the bourgee.

We had previously done the afternoon tea at Bourgee and really enjoyed it so I booked dinner for my other half’s birthday. It did not disappoint. The steak was delicious, as was the rest of the food! Service was very good as well. I put on the reservation that it was my boyfriends birthday and they called the night before to see if I wanted to add a special dessert on for £5 which I went ahead with (it was a perfect dessert to share after quite a big steak!) They also said that the staff could sing happy birthday to my other half, but I politely declined this as he would have hated it. The only odd thing was that when we arrived the receptionist was offering to take everyone else’s coats, but did not take ours. A little thing, but it made me wonder why she was offering everyone else and not us.
Overall though, completely worth the money and we would definitely go here for a special occasion.

We went on 5/1/17 and had an amazing night, the food is beautiful! The waitress brought out the selection of steaks and lobsters and explained them all. Which is a nice touch!
We had NY strip & The Porterhouse steaks with garlic sauce, both amazing!
Love this place I would definitely recommend!

Excellent in every way.

Only thing letting them down is coffee machine. Had to wait about 45 mins for it to come because they only have one and when it did come it wasn’t that hot because the machine is only set to make it one way. However I was on a table with 12 other people so quite hard to get them quickly.

Lovely venue, food was best weve eaten in ages. Staff were brilliant and friendly. Only drawback we would say was it was bit loud as dining area is close to the bar. But appart from that 10/10. Very good resturant.
