The Reviews Say It All!

Marygreen Manor

Essex has well and truly been placed on the map, all thanks to the rather infamous reality TV series, “The Only Way Is Essex”. Love it or hate it, it’s known across the globe, even played in the United States and now as a result, Essex is known far and wide. Along with our love of bling and drama, we’re also now known for our wonderful scenery thanks to the many dog walking scenes as well as our high-class establishments. As a result, so many restaurants and bars in Essex are doing their hardest to keep up with the Jones’. Here at Marygreen Manor however, we’re the original high-class restaurant. Offering fine dining and an award winning wine list, along with luxury accommodation, leaves little in the way of “keeping up” but don’t just take our word for it.

Now-a-days, to find out what a restaurant’s really like, all you need do is head on over to TripAdvisor where you’ll find past and present guests of any venue leaving reviews, good and bad. Smart devices with instant access to the internet, allow so many to access a much wider audience and in doing so, people now feel much freer to give their opinions. For an establishment such as ours, this has only been a good thing as so many people now get to see just how fantastic our service really is. From our luxury apartments and deluxe suites to our fine dining experiences and afternoon teas, we’d thought we’d share just what people are saying, so here goes:

“Marygreen Manor Stands Out Above All! – I visited the Marygreen Manor for the tasting menu with wine pairing recently with my girlfriend and can honestly say everything about this night was spectacular. The food, the service provided, the history of the building, you won’t find many places like this one. We like to have a lot of “date nights”, but this place completely tops everywhere locally. We was greeted by the Bar Manager Peter with a home made cocktail which started off the night perfectly. And the scallops were to die for!! A big thank you to David & Michael for organising such a perfect night, and of course a thank you to our waiter Pepe, this guy is one of a kind. We will be returning, and we will be looking at booking a room next time!” – Seeing this review really bowled us over. It showed that not only was our food on point but we were also providing the service we’ve worked so hard toward. When all of our staff work together as a team, it shows that absolutely anything is possible.

“Perfect Wedding! – Our wedding ceremony and whole day took place at the Marygreen Manor, with afternoon tea for 17 the day before. Annette had been our contact throughout and she excels at her role in leading a first rate team. The attention to detail and the willingness to go the extra mile ensured that all 67 guests had a wonderful time eg the barman was very obliging and allowed nervous guests who were going to speak to see the venue rooms the day before; the night porter provided sandwiches for hungry guests around midnight, the toastmaster, Chris, was clearly well used to the hotel and really facilitated the day. The food was excellent, once again Annette is an outstanding duty manager and events organiser. We would definitely think of the Marygreen Manor for future special occasions.” – While we’re famous for our fabulous food and afternoon tea, we’re also becoming well known as one of the best wedding venues in Essex. This review only emphasises that point more so. When hosting weddings, our intention is to not only provide the most beautiful day for the happy couple, but to facilitate their day as much as possible. If we can make things easier and stress-free, then we’ll do our utmost to ensure that.

While these reviews have been left completely independently, we do advise you take a good look for yourself, so why not book in to try our delicious tasting menu or even a sweet afternoon tea perhaps? We guarantee you’ll be just as bowled over as these guys!

Choosing The Perfect Wedding Venue In Essex


The Perfect Wedding Venue In Essex

When you’re newly engaged, one of the first questions you’ll inevitably be asked is, “have you picked a venue yet?” Although we want to scream to world just how happy we are that we’re about to spend the rest of our lives with the one we love, the constant barrage of questions about a venue can make you want to run and hide. Gone are the days when a couple would simply select the local church in their hometown and simply check it off their list of things to do. Wedding venue options are now almost infinite and as a result people want the very best space to say their “I do’s”. As a very popular wedding venue in Essex we’ve discovered that making things as easy as possible for couples is the best thing to do. Here are our five simple rules when it comes to selecting the perfect wedding venue in Essex. Stick by these and you should be able to select your ideal venue in no time at all.

  1. Understanding the logistics – with all the emotions and excitement that inevitably comes with such an occasion, it can be all too easy to see a venue, get excited and sign a contract. It’s important however that you consider the logistics of the venue saving you headaches later down the line. You need to think of how many guests you’ll be needing, the season and time of day and any special accommodation requirements. Give yourself a rough count of guests too as this will make things a lot easier when it comes to picking the venue.
  2. Visit the venue at the time of day your wedding will be – if you work a regular 9 to 5 then chances are you’ll be visiting your venue on a Saturday or Sunday but what time of day will you be getting hitched? You might fall in love with the venue immediately but you should always arrange for a second visit at the same time of day you plan on getting married. If you visit the venue at 9am in the morning, we guarantee you’ll see a completely different view at 5pm that evening. Everything from how the lighting floods into the space to how darker evenings may affect the setting will be things you’ll want to consider.
  3. Find out if the venue is full service – there are two different wedding venues in Essex, one that offers the full service and one that isn’t full service. Full service offers you everything from tables and chairs to catering and linen whilst a non-full service merely offers you the space. Looking for a full service venue will make your day sail smoother than a P&O ferry and will often make the end cost a lot smaller too. That means more for the honeymoon budget.
  4. Decide on your wedding style and feel – whether you want romance, elegance or urban industrial, the venue is there for the picking in our fabulous county. You just need to be specific about what you want and stick to your guns. You also need to ask yourself if the wedding you want will befit the seasonal weather you’ll be getting married in. Could your favourite wedding venue alter where the ceremony and wedding breakfast take place if the weather turns? As we all know this is hugely important here in the UK.
  5. Ask as many questions as possible – always ask as many questions as you possibly can. A silly question simply doesn’t exist, especially when it comes to one of the most important days of your life. Don’t be afraid to ask any question that pops into your head and if you don’t understand the answer or simply can’t remember all the information you’re being given, just ask again. Better yet, take a note pad and keep a note of answers to everything you’ve asked then just when you think you’ve asked every question possible, you’ll think of something else to ask. Get everything in writing and then go from there. That way you’ll have all the information you need to make the perfect decision.
