Rendezvous Casino Southend

We’ve teamed up with one of the most buzzing venues in town to offer you the chance to put their brand new menu to the test!

The Rendezvous Southend casino is soon to launch a brand new A La Carte menu in its successful Elements restaurant and to celebrate, they are offering you the chance to preview the menu at an exclusive VIP ‘Taste Tester’ event.

The mouth-watering new menu partners customers’ firm favourites with a selection of exciting new dishes, and the supreme quality of the food can be guaranteed by the experience and credentials of head chef David Jarrett who has been at the casino for over 14 years and has previously cooked for Her Majesty the Queen. All food is freshly prepared on the premises and sold at extremely affordable prices.

The ‘Taste Tester’ evening takes place on Wednesday 29th July, where customers are being invited in to sample the new menu before it hits the restaurant floor on the 7th august. The event is another example of the casino’s commitment to deliver the best possible customer satisfaction and to giving locals exactly what they are looking for.

Johanna Johnstone, Venue Director at The Rendezvous Southend says:

“We’re always on the hunt for customer feedback and ways to incorporate this into the running of the casino – their thoughts and opinions mean everything to us. We thought that inviting them in to trial the menu would also be a nice way to thank them for their continued loyalty – we recently celebrated our 14th anniversary and several locals have been with us since day one.”

David Jarrett says:

“A large number of our customers have enjoyed dining out in our casino over many years and we have a loyal following.  Catering for their needs and tastes was front of mind in developing the new menu.  We believe that we offer the very best dining experience in Southend – delicious, seasonal meals that really deliver on quality and taste at an affordable price”

Being the only casino in town with a legitimate link to Las Vegas, The Rendezvous Southend is passionate about providing the best buzz and excitement in town, and as such have promised a few extra surprises at the event to inject a bit of glam into the ‘taste tester’ evening, they will also be welcoming six of Southend United’s first team football players, including Gary Deegan and Will Atkinson. Following their recent success on the playing field, the casino believes their attendance will empower the casino to follow in their footsteps to deliver a ‘winning menu’.

Johanna Johnstone continues:

“We can’t wait to welcome the Southend United players into the casino. It will be a huge treat for our customers to chat to such local heroes, and we can’t think of anyone better placed to ensure that we’re offering a winning menu.”

With influential members of local Southend businesses also in attendance, Johanna concludes:

“The opinions of such talented and respected local business people will be invaluable. We intend to take on board everyone’s comments to make any necessary tweaks before the menu officially launches on the 7th.”
