My wife and I had our Christmas Day lunch at the Rose & Crown and could not have had a more welcoming visit. The staff were very friendly and one of our waiters Robin, was very attentive and polite, although to be fair they were all lovely. The food was excellent and the character of the old building made for a memorable Xmas day.
Christmas day meal at a great location
Just enjoyed a fabulous lunch in this historic building. Great choice of meals, food freshly cooked and delicious. Service very friendly and welcoming, would highly recommend as a restaurant to enjoy a leisurely lunch with family or friends.
We recently held our Masonic Ladies Festival at The Rose & Crown Hotel, Colchester, and it could not have been a better venue. From the early planning, Lisa Grantham was exceptionally helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for her. The evening was a great success, the food was excellent, not one complaint or moan from 135 guests, only praise for the service. The team of waiters and waitresses were superbly managed by Stefan, who ensured all of our guests were well treated. Our evening was a great success, we were most definitely looked after by the whole team on duty that evening. Thank you!
Masonic Ladies Festival
Extremely helpful staff, beautiful hotel, very clean - Highly Recommend. Food in the hotel is gorgeous both breakfast and evening meal. Beautiful old property really lovingly look after. Staff very friendly and always ready to help.
Sunday lunch has never been as good as it gets here!! I very reluctantly share this information in fear of Sundays selling out! Easily the best Roast option in Colchester!! Staff is lovely and the beautiful Tudor pub feels ancient and welcomes you.. I go there every Sunday if I can!! Ps. The best sticky toffee pudding on the planet!
Home away from home
Excellent stay at the Rose and Crown this weekend. A warm greeting from reception awaited us. Our room was very good, clean and tidy and in keeping with the rest of the hotel. There was ample complementary tea, coffee, milk etc in the room. We ate dinner at the hotel which was equally enjoyable.
