We had a lovely reception at the Rose and Crown. We used the conservatory which was a perfect size for our small wedding of 20 guests. The room is so light and looked amazing. I met with Rachel a number of times before the day and she made sure that everything was perfect on the day. All of the staff on th day were lovely and kept making sure everything was ok. We had drinks outside on the patio and the gardens were the perfect backdrop for our photos. The food was delicious and as we had a small reception we were able to let our guests choose their food beforehand so everyone was happy. We were able to play ... Read more

We visited lots of local venues and this one was far and away the best location. We met with the staff and discussed our needs and found we had definitely found the right venue. We could design our bespoke wedding easily and the prices were reasonable. The team were really helpful, assisting us in making sensible decisions and giving advice when we needed it. The planning process was smooth with plenty of contact without being overbearing. The day itself was fantastic. The rooms looked stunning and the event ran perfectly thanks to the dedicated staff. The food was exceptional, it all came out together for our 80 guests and the service was brilliant. The highest quality products were used and ... Read more

The Rose and Crown was the perfect choice for both our wedding ceremony and celebration in the Riverside restaurant. The staff were excellent, keeping things moving and organised, being helpful and professional throughout from midday to midnight. The hotel and staff were able to accommodate the delivery of the cake the day before the wedding, our requirements for decoration and table settings and ensured that guests and the wedding party were at ease. The seating covers, table settings and decoration was all done so well, with changes from the ceremony set up to dining set up done efficiently. The food was excellent and received compliments from many of the guests. The service was timely and measured, and allowed time for ... Read more

We decided to use the Rose & Crown for a small afternoon & evening reception after a ceremony at Salisbury Registry Office. We loved the location by the river & used the Orangery as it was ideal for our small party & gives access directly to the riverside patio area. In the planning the staff were attentive & helpful, and listened to what we wanted to do. The organisation on the day was excellent, the function room was beautifully set out for our arrival, everything went according to plan & the staff were so attentive. We really enjoyed the reception & the feedback from our guests was also very positive. The food & drink was excellent, the timing perfect, the ... Read more

My wife and I had the most amazing day on our wedding day at the Rose & Crown. The rooms looked absolutely stunning and a special atmosphere was created right from the start, lasting the whole unforgettable day. Both Rachel and Caroline did a superb job and everything ran completely smoothly and seamlessly - the running of the day couldn't have gone any better from our point of view and us and our guests were really well looked after at all times. Credit must also go to all the other members of staff working that day, and over our stay at the hotel, who were all friendly, helpful and professional - and this was echoed by comments from our family ...

We had a lovely reception at the Rose and Crown on 21st October. The day was perfect from fizz on arrival, a lovely 3 course meal, with plenty of wine and a great buffet and disco in the evening. The orangery was perfect for our intimate wedding and of course the backdrop of the river and cathedral made it extra special. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout and when the night was ended we had a lovely bridal suite to retire to and a leisurely breakfast the next day - recommended to all future wedding planners!
by Karen on Sat, 28th October, 2017
This venue was just perfect. Right by the river with views of the cathedral. The setting is stunning and even if it rains you can still see the beautiful scenery through the conservatory and orangery windows. Good food and drink. Great staff, brilliant disco. The day was perfect and we are so glad we chose this venue. It's the best venue in Salisbury in our opinion. Thank you to everyone who helped make our wedding so special

We had a truly wonderful wedding with you. Our day was very special. Everyone said how lovely it was. The overnight accommodation was lovely. I had a very relaxing evening on the Friday and breakfast in my room on the Saturday morning. The room was spacious allowing us all to get ready in time. The tray of sandwiches on the day were very welcome, the children all tucked up the huuuuge bed having their lunch was so cute and hilarious ! The lady who cleaned the room provided up with extra towels and shower gel and also came along before she finished work to hoover, as knowing the children were there it did need a clean up for the happy ...

We had an absolutely perfect wedding weekend at the Rose and Crown in Salisbury. From start to finish, everything was amazing. We had a lot of guests staying in the hotel during the weekend and nothing was too much trouble for the staff, even sourcing Yorkshire Tea for breakfast for the groom's family and friends! A huge part of this was down to Rachel's meticulous behind the scenes organisation in the months leading up to the wedding and to Caroline for her fantastic help throughout the day itself; quite honestly we couldn't have done it without them both. The venue was decorated exactly how we wished, the food was delicious and the whole organisation of the day was perfect. All ... Read more

The Rose and Crown were absolutely amazing from the very moment we booked our wedding day with them! The wedding coordinator, Rachel, catered for our every requirement and nothing was too much trouble for them. On the wedding day itself, everything went by without a hitch thanks to the amazing, attentive staff at the hotel who could not do enough for us. It was so nice not to have to worry about anything on the day and I was very confident that we were in good hands! The food for the wedding breakfast was lovely, everyone really enjoyed it! I would more than recommend this hotel for a wedding venue. It has such a lovely setting too and even the ... Read more

We couldn't have asked for more from the staff at the Rose and Crown. They made our special day truly memorable, from start to finish. The staff were professional, hardworking and attentive; nothing was too much trouble. Special thanks has to go to Rachel, who was on hand throughout the planning stages, she listened to all our requirements and was always available to answer any queries, right up to the day. The room looked amazing and was set-up exactly as we had asked, with all the finishing touches. The food was lovely and the riverside location made for some stunning photo's, particularly with the river punt. Thankyou all once again and we look forward to visiting you again soon.

My husband Wayne and I married here on 3rd June 2017. After being let down by our initial venue, we both felt very disheartened, and weren't sure we'd find anything we loved as much... Oh how we were wrong! After coming across the Rose and Crown online, we booked an appointment to go and view it. During that first meeting, we absolutely fell in love with the venue. The wedding planner Rachel was lovely, the building and grounds absolutely stunning, and the package was perfect for us. Booking our wedding here was a no brainer. The planning process ran very smoothly, and as the package included everything from chair covers and welcomes drinks, to food and DJ, a lot of ... Read more

We choose the Rose and Crown for our wedding based on location and it's lovely characteristics, we certainly were not disappointed. Rachel, Caroline and their team were brilliant throughout the whole process from the very first meeting till the last minor detail on the actual day (28.4.17). The Cathedral Suite looked stunning and was just how we imagined it to look from the planning process. The Riversedge room looked amazing when it was all set up and the food was absolutely excellent we still have guests telling us how much they enjoyed the food both for the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet. During the day Caroline was amazing making sure we were fine and relaxed during the Wedding breakfast ... Read more

I will start off by saying the Hotel is the perfect location for a wedding. It was the first venue we looked into and also the last, we knew it was the perfect setting for us to get married as soon as we walked in. A couple of months before our wedding, The Rose and Crown had a bit of a renovation to the Cathedral Suite, its garden and patio area. It was beautiful before, but these new areas really made it stunning. With the views of the Cathedral and the river in the background, it made for the most amazing photos. Onto the staff. The staff were absolutely amazing, all so courteous and polite. Rachel in particular, we would ... Read more

Can't describe how amazing and special our wedding reception was. I'm a extremely organised person and is always the one organising and helping people with events. However on this occasion I told Rachel what I wanted and handed it over! Everything was perfect! Everything was in place and from meeting the day before and leaving everything there to the check out the day after everything was perfect. Beautiful location, beautiful food and beautiful selection of rooms. We will be back for our anniversary! Thank you to all the staff especially Rachel and deepak!
by Keith on Sun, 23rd April, 2017
From the very beginning, the rose and crown were very professional, approachable, accommodating and extremely diligent in their commitment to ensuring they provided us with our perfect wedding day. Although our events manager changed a couple of times over the time of our planning, communication between all involved and ourselves through email was constant and thorough and always kept us informed. We really felt that the rose and crown were dedicated in ensuring they provided us with all our personal needs and requests, from types of rooms to special meal requirements, it felt that there was no area within our planning that they couldn't accommodate for. On the day it's self we couldn't have asked for a better turn out, ... Read more

We selected the Rose and Crown for our wedding based upon reviews and initial meetings with Rachel, and we certainly were not disappointed. Rachel and her team were excellent throughout in both coming up with ideas and listening to our thoughts. The result was a wonderful day. The Riversedge room looked amazing when set up and the food was excellent both for the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet. Most of our guest stayed in the hotel and all said the rooms were lovely. The setting with the river and cathedral made for a great backdrop for the photos. We are planning to go back to the hotel in the summer to continue our very happy memories of the day.

We first chose The Legacy Rose and Crown not only for the super location but also for the friendly staff.Our wedding on the 5th Nov was such a great success and this was due to everything going without a hitch. From the time of the planning with the wedding planner Rachel from the Rose and Crown, right through to the big day was handled so well. The team inc Caroline went above and beyond to make sure it all ran smoothly and they couldn't do enough especially on the day to help.Rachel and the team were so helpful it made the organising of this day stress free.We would like to thank everyone for making our day so very special.
by Peter Bennett & Charlotte Bennett on Wed, 23rd November, 2016
Rachel Wall and the team the Legacy Rose & Crown Hotel were simply brilliant! We got married abroad and had a reception evening at the hotel for family and friends who couldn't make the wedding day. Everything was very professional and the evening ran so smoothly thanks to all the organisation from Rachel and the staff. The venue held our 120 guests easily and the bar and seating area never looked empty. The buffet food came out on time and we had lots of guests noting how good it was. Rachel organised the DJ and we were both very pleased with music selection and set up. We were able to block book 10 rooms for guests and these filled very ... Read more

We couldn't have had a more perfect day. All the stress and anxiety in the planning disappeared as the excellent team at the Rose and Crown made all the magic happen around us, helping to make this a memorable day, not only for us but our family and friends. They were accommodating to all our requests, including us deciding to push the meal forward by half an hour only the day before. The food on the wedding breakfast was delicious, as was the evening buffet (so I'm told!)
by Mrs Ferris de Warburton on Wed, 31st August, 2016
My daughters Wedding took place at this beautiful venue and I would highly recommend for such an event. The staff were extremely helpful in helping me get things set up as well as their amazing service provided. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed themselves and how helpful, speedy and courteous the staff were. Thank you to all for making my daughter and son-in-laws day go smoothly and without a hitch.
by Nick SJ Mackman on Thu, 28th July, 2016
This was the perfect setting for our big day and we could not have asked for a better venue. The staff were fantastic and very thorough, they were more than willing to help every time thry saw or heard from us and they helped make everything perfect even with last minute scrambles. The venue is gorgeous with a garden alongside the river which made for brilliant photos and really set the scene for us. We could not have imagined the day being as fantastic as it was and we would highly recommend this venue to everyone. We would just like to say a massive thank you to all the staff included Rachel, Derek and Caroline were amazing and the staff ... Read more

Like i say, recommend this venue to anybody! Amazing day and we cant thank them enough for what they done!!
by Sara on Wed, 6th July, 2016
We held our wedding reception at the Rose and Crown in Salisbury and had such a lovely day. Rachel, Caroline and the team organised things brilliantly and couldn't have done more. We arranged punting from the hotel which went down really well with all our guests and thoroughly recommend them too - in fact, the three and a half hours of punting organised could easily have turned into double that amount of time.
by Judy on Fri, 1st July, 2016
I am just writing to thank everyone at the Rose & Crown for making our Wedding Day on 3rd June a happy and carefree day. I would like to thank Caroline too for all her hard work overseeing everything and also for helping put the ribbons on the cars which I didn't know about until the following day. Everyone I have spoken to thoroughly enjoyed the day and said how wonderful everything was especially the food, canapes, the dinner, buffet everything. Breakfast was good too for the ones who stayed the night. Thank you all once again for making June 3rd a special day for us.
by Jon and Sam Alston on Thu, 26th May, 2016
The venue was amazing, the setting perfect, the Riverside room we were married in was just about right for the number of guests and was dressed and presented incredibly. On the day when everything was perfectly organised and our every need was more than catered for. The food was great and they were very accomodating with any special requirements (gluten free, vegetarian, etc). Would definitely recommend to anyone.
by Janet Street on Thu, 29th May, 2014
We held our wedding here in May and had a fantastic day. We worked with Martin , the Events Co-ordinator over 7 months and he was perfect in guiding us through the process, patiently and helpfully answering our many questions over that time and coming up with a detailed plan for the day. Both the Ceremony Room and Rivers Edge Bar had recently been refurbished and that together with the location, by the river, parking and accommodation made it a perfect location for us. On the day the Kitchen did a fantastic job, our guests (65) have been enthusing about how delicious both the wedding breakfast and buffet were. All the staff were helpful and attentive and everything went to ... Read more
