Our Wedding experience..
After researching many venues we decided to have and plan our wedding at the Rose and Crown.
When I read a review I expect to be reading a 100% true and honest review of the writers experience without sugar coating... so heres mine!
Our wedding was booked for 10th February 2018. All the arrangements were dealt with by Ms Lisa Grantham. Lisa from the day we met to the end of our wedding was simply faultless, professional, friendly, courteous, flexible and went beyond, just brilliant!!!!
Our wedding experience throughout was for myself and my, now Wife, perfect. The venue is beautiful, the decoration was beautiful, we were able to add our personal touches too to the venue. The food without exaggeration was amazing, we had multiple comments from guests on the quality of the food, top restaurant standard as far as many were concerned. The staff during the wedding were courteous, polite and professional. Stefan who was orchestrating the staff during the day could not do enough for us. I’d like to pass on my personal thanks to all the staff for making an important day so perfect for us. I would recommend having a wedding at the Rose and Crown in a heart beat.
Our wedding was on Saturday 10th and we stayed at the hotel on the Friday night too, my Wife with her friends who were decorating the venue and my friends too, some who had come from abroad. We drank in the gorgeous bar and most ate there too, again the food was of a very high standard and we plan to return to eat there again in the future.
The accommodation of which there is plenty and varied is great, clean and comfortable. On my wedding night of course I stayed with the Mrs in the Bridal Suite, stunning, beautiful, comfortable, felt like we were in a different century, beautiful and very large.
Again the wedding experience from start to finish... perfect, our stay the night before was very nice though for a few of our friends the bar closed a little early, around 12 ish. The night of the wedding we all finished up at 12 midnight and a few of us including myself were still full of partying but understand other guests are in the hotel. Would have been nice to go to the bar and have a chat and a quiet giggle with our staying guest but this was not an option.
Breakfast on the Sunday after the wedding sadly seemed a bit unorganised. We were a large wedding party and many of the guests stayed in the hotel, taking most of the rooms and all had been booked for sometime. Breakfast was from 8am till 10am, guests including my wife tried to get breads, cold meats etc at around 09.25 only to be told they would not be replenished due to the time but there is cooked breakfast available. Explaining some didn’t want cook breakfast and there should be available the same breakfast throughout we waited a long time for this to be rectified. Service was slow and items on the cooked breakfast list like black pudding ran out after waiting quite a while for food. Again the food is fantastic but a little slow at this time, the day before was ok.
In summing up the whole wedding experience from start to finish was perfect 10/10, Lisa and Stefan deserve a medal, they and their staff a credit to weddings at the Rose and Crown. Amazing venue and Bridal Suite, great bar staff, general staff, food 10/10, DJ Karl 10/10, can’t wait to visit again, just sort out brekkie!!!
Many many thanks Brian and Riikka x
