Quite a nice ground to watch football especially the one end that has a raised standing terrace it also unique when you watch cargo container ships sailing down the Thames behind one goal… but it is quite open though, so on a windy day wrap up warm as the wind whistles through you.
Not my comments, but from a Southend fan.. can't fault the pitch, the bar is lovely. Why oh why was there only two people serving??? Bar is easily big enough for 4 staff.in fact I have been before when it was a tiny bar.. 4 staff working service was much quicker. You would have made lots more money if you made full advantage of the big bar. Especially when one member spent ten minutes fighting with the card machine. Dave sufc
