Royal Hall5A The Southend
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This new pub consists of the old Masonic Hall situated at first floor level, with an entrance to the side of the Royal Oak Hotel. It started life as a cinema and after that became a concert hall. The large, vaulted, high-ceilinged space is furnished with a mix of tables and chairs plus settees with a pool table in the centre and two dart boards along one wall. The canopy of the Lodge Master's chair remains behind the bar where two large screens show Sky sports. On Thursday evenings you can get curry, rice and a pint for £6. The whole space can be hired for private functions.
