About Us


Our authentic restaurant resides hidden in the heart of the sunny seaside town of Southend on Sea.  Nestled in the preserved conservation area of the town, is the beautiful 1920’s original bowling club pavilion,  which now houses the restaurant overlooking the bowling green.


We are in the heart of the community and like to think we bring a little slice of Petite sunshine whatever the weather.  Our mission is to serve our guests with first class service and excellent food and beverages.  Our guests are always our number one priority and we strive for attention to detail during their whole experience ensuring they leave feeling happy. 


The ambience and décor serve as a time capsule back to a time when our lives thrived on the world of Art Deco, providing a wonderful air of continental elegance mixed with a bygone era of traditional England.  Our venue is the quintessential essence of a great British pastime, the traditional Afternoon Tea, but equally serves wonderfully fresh food for everyone to enjoy and absorb the atmosphere.  A romance between the nostalgic past and the beautiful quant is created, leaving diners feeling relaxed and charmed.
