      From the ownership and management down, the best hotel and pub is Southend

      Its rare in these days of large pub multiples that you find a fantastic privately owned public house with letting rooms that offers the personal touch, service and all round experience that The Hope Hotel offers. I have been lucky enough to visit the Hope many times and I popped in a couple of days ago, and ended up staying for 5 hours purely and simply because the service, people and fun that I had made me change my plans for the entire day. A warm thanks to Ann Marie, George, Chris, Sean and Scott for making my trips to the Hope so much fun, looking forward to my next visit very much, Matt Stayed February 2016, travelled solo
