    Wedding Party

    We got married on the quiet in September, but wanted to have a celebration party which we booked at the Rose & Crown for November.

    Myself and my husband made the right choice in choosing the Rose & Crown, as all of the staff were extremely helpful and polite and the evening was just as we wanted it to be.

    The feedback from our guests was was very positive and they all enjoyed themselves. They loved the venue and the history of the Rose & Crown and the food was delicious.

    We enjoyed it so much, that I suggested to have our works Christmas lunch here in December and it's been booked.

    I cannot give any negative points about the Rose & Crown or the staff and I would certainly recommend any future brides to definitely take a look, you will not be disappointed.

    Thank you all.

    Wedding Day

    My husband and I cannot fault anything during our wedding day at the Rose & Crown, Colchester. From booking our special day right through to the day itself Lisa and the whole team went above and beyond.
    The day itself was simply perfect! Everything ran smoothly and nothing was too much trouble. Sian was absolutely amazing and worked tirelessly the whole day.
    We simply cannot thank them all enough for everything they done for us, our day was truly magically in a beautiful setting.
    Thank you all so much
    Mr & Mrs Wilson

    Big Thank You

    We wanted to say a big thank you to Lisa and the team at the rose and crown for helping us to have such a wonderful wedding day. Right from the start Lisa has been great at answering all of our many questions and helping us through all our deliberations! You can tell that the team are very experienced at hosting weddings as nothing was too much to ask and every detail had been considered. On the day everything went very smoothly, the rose suite looked stunning and the food was absolutely lovely. All our guests commented on the lovely food and had a wonderful time. We cannot fault the rose and crown at all. We just wish we could do it all over again! Mr and Mrs Joseph
