Your venue…

Located just a few minutes’ walk from Colchester town centre, our 14th century hotel is one of the most romantic settings that you could choose for your wedding celebrations. With history and heart in every beam, and a ‘secret garden’ for those all-important wedding day photographs.

We’re a licensed venue, giving you the convenient option of holding your ceremony and reception in the same location. Ceremonies can accommodate 30 to 80 guests and you’ll have the choice of three beautiful suites.

Your reception…

Wedding receptions are held in your choice of three suites for 20 to 160 guests. The largest is The Rose Suite, which has its own private entrance, private bar and a large dance floor for you and your guests to dance the night away.

Your wedding breakfast…

Wedding breakfasts are held in your choice of three suites, also able to accommodate 20 to 160 guests.

Your wedding breakfast will be created by our talented team of chefs using fresh, locally sourced produce where possible and catering for all dietary requirements. Our menus are just a starting point, if there’s something that you would like for your wedding breakfast then we’re very flexible.
