Wonderful venue and team!

We had such a great day at the Rosendale, it was so much fun and everything ran so smoothly. The whole planning process was really easy as well, and this was all thanks to Oscar and his team. Oscar's a fantastic event manager, perpetually calm and cool and he really knows his stuff, which helped everyone relax and enjoy the day. And the service was fantastic - no one was without a drink in their hand for the whole day, and so many guests told us how much they'd enjoyed the food. The venue itself is fantastic, both the rooms are decorated really well so there was very little we needed to do, but loads of scope if we'd wanted to do more. And the winter garden was brilliant - a great place for guests to mingle while the rooms were being turned around.
In all honesty, the day was perfect and I'd 100% recommend the Rosendale to anyone wanting to get married in a friendly, cosy, relaxed but professional setting.

Rosendale Wedding

We got married at the Rosendale and had a spectacular day thanks to Oscar and his team! No request was too big and they conducted themselves with professionalism and flexibility at all times. Oscar has years of experience which was apparent with all his many helpful suggestions and guidance. We felt 100% confident in his work that we had little to worry about – making the day all the more enjoyable and stress-free.
The food and service you receive is to a very high standard that you can rest easy knowing you are treating your guests.

We feel so lucky to have found The Rosendale; and best of all, we can pop back to the pub to recount stories over a pint!

Fantastic venue

We had a great time at our wedding in November and the excellent venue and service were a big part of this.
We were initially drawn by the function rooms, beautiful building, and straightforward pricing (where so many other venues refused to tell us a price). The planning process went well with great advice from Georgina and Oscar that helped us make decisions (it being both our first weddings). The fact we were able to have our ceremony and reception in the same venue was a major bonus.
On the day itself, all the staff were very helpful and professional, helping the whole thing run smoothly with little to no stress. The food and wine was excellent - as mentioned afterwards by our guests. The service lasted all throughout the night, even as we started making less and less sense. It provided everything we wanted for our special day.

Fantastic, classy and relaxed wedding venue

We had our wedding at The Rosendale and had the most fantastic day from start to finish. The food was really great (and lots of our guests commented on this too), the room looked beautiful and the staff are so helpful and made us and our guests feel really special. Sue was incredibly helpful in the run up answering my myriad of questions and emails on all things from food, to drink, to flowers, and Ethan and his team ran everything seamlessly on the day. If you're looking for a classy but relaxed venue that has the right balance of not formal, but not scruffy around the edges, this is the place for you

. Everything from start to finish was impeccable

“The Rosendale was the perfect venue for us. The room was amazing and Sue and her team transformed it into my dream room. Everything from start to finish was impeccable. I am very fussy - and The Rosendale didn't disappoint. Our day was full of fun, love and laughter and The Rosendale was fantastic!”

Our wedding day was perfect and everything we coul

“From the moment we booked The Rosendale for our wedding, we knew we had made the perfect choice for us. When we told our parents we were going to get married in a pub, we could instantly sense their concerns. However, after taking each set in for pre-wedding meals to meet the team and experience the atmosphere, they fell in love with The Rosendale. If you’re looking for a beautiful, understated yet laid back wedding venue, it is ideal for you. Our wedding day was perfect and everything we could have ever wished for: thank you to Ethan and the whole team at The Rosendale.”

Wedding 4th July

We had our wedding reception at the Rosendale pub a month ago. The team were amazing, the food was amazing and the party was amazing!!
Our friends loved the venue and the service - it was just the right size for a party and was both intimate and fun.
I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone looking for an extremely reasonably priced service and for a lovely team to help you plan the event.
