Pub overview

A characterful traditional seaside pub located directly on Southend Seafront, home of the world's longest pier! Investment planned.

The Falcon is a traditional pub that services the local community throughout the year with a substantial increase in trade throughout the Spring/Summer months from tourists and visitors to this seaside location.

We have a planned investment to refresh the décor both internally and externally.

The pub does not have a kitchen, so the focus is on great quality drinks and service. There is however an opportunity to introduce easy to serve bar snacks e.g. Scotch eggs, Sausage Rolls, Pies etc

The bar is sea facing with seating at the front and a pool table to the side, there is room for 5 tables outside. There is a covered smoking area at the back of the pub. Currently the pub shows sport and has pool and darts teams.
