Perfect place for an all-inclusive wedding. Good location, plenty of parking for your guests. The staff at the hotel went out of their way to make all the guests feel at home.
All the guests commented on how good the food was. The hotel has lots of history, it's an old hotel, but the rooms had

mod cons. The four-poster bedroom was spacious and lovely.
The reception room was fantastic. A bit like stepping back into Tudor times. Good for pictures.
Some friends of ours, who went to our wedding, are thinking about having their wedding at this location.
If you want a wedding venue that's full of character with fantastic staff, do not hesitate, just book.

We had a wonderful time at The Rose and Crown. We couldn't ask for a better venue or staff that looked after us. All of our family were made to feel welcome and looked after. We were lucky enough to have Lisa help us from start to finish with all the changes that had to be made to our day. We will

2020 was a dreadful year. Our original plans were changed 8 times due to government guidance moving from no weddings to 30 guests, to an undecided tier contingency plan to 15 guests and then lockdown meaning our date moved....we were close to believing our wedding would never happen. but Lisa and

the team at THE rose and crown, Colchester stuck with us at each turn. for every change in plan, Lisa and and the hotel worked to come up with a new plan to make our special day come to life. eventually, on 12th December 2020 (a month after our initial date) it finally went ahead.

From an initial party of 60 and 120 evening guests, we finally welcomed 15 of our closest friends and family. The rose and crown made the day intimate and cosy. each of our guests were treated to an overnight stay in the oldest part of the hotel with great character and charm; we had log fires, a dedicated team of table service and a bespoke menu created by the chef to suit our dietary needs. The entire team worked to give us the day we wanted and the experience, to be honest, that we needed! The food, beverages and service were impeccable.

In 2020, this was exactly what we needed and the rose and crown team made it happen! this was truly a phenomenal venue for a wedding.

Can't recommend the Rose and Crown enough. Lisa and the team made sure everything was taken care of and made everything flow so effortlessly. From the night before, where the bar kept us fed and watered (the food was sublime), to the day of the wedding. Considering all the alterations we made

through COVID the guys catered for all of it, and were now having our reception portion of the wedding next year, all of which was moved and sorted with no fuss.
The team were helpful and bent over backwards to accommodate us all. Really, really couldn't thank the guys enough.
