We can't wait to visit again and reminisce our day
After staying over at the Crab and Lobster for a special birthday, we both knew it was the place we wanted to tie the knot. We loved the feel for the place, really quirky, laid back but luxurious too. We also didn't want anything too formal. We met with John on various occasions before the big day, i had a million and one questions which he happily answered and set our minds at rest. We had 40 guests during the day and 120 on the night. The room where we said the 'i do's' was lovely, really bright and very intimate. The grounds are fabulous, lots of really good photo opportunities. I was a little worried at how the evening party would flow with it being across two separate rooms due to having 120 guests, however, it was perfect. We had a photo booth/sweet shop etc set up in the back room and people could sit and chat but still here the music and entertainment from the dance floor. Another big fear was the good old British weather, i thought rain would completely ruin the day! It stayed dry during the ceremony and photos and then rained on and off for most of the night. This didn't have any impact on the day and our guests still made use of the outside area. The food was gorgeous with lots of compliments from our guests. We had a BBQ for the evening which went down very well, some guests even commented 'the best BBQ ever!!' John and the team organised the day to flow so perfectly for us and went over and above our expectations in looking after my disabled grandparents, even arranging transport to get between the main building and the Crab Manor. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was amazing. We can't wait to visit again and reminisce our day!

We knew immediately it was 'the one'
We have always had fond memories of North Yorkshire- making our first home together in the nearby village of Thirsk. It therefore seemed right to return to the area and celebrate our day with our family and friends. Crab Manor was the one and only place that we visited when looking for a wedding venue and we knew immediately it was 'the one'. With lots of small intimate spaces, quirky decor and beautiful grounds we fell in love with it. We chose Good Friday on the Easter bank holiday which was great because the majority of our guests had the time off work and it provided us with an Easter theme for the table decorations. In the build up to our wedding, we stayed in Bora Bora to celebrate Christmas Day - three months to the day that we would be back there to tie the knot. We are so pleased that there are many more rooms to for us to return to and explore and reflect upon our happy day. From start to finish, the staff really couldn't have been more helpful- everyone was supremely organised and everything went so smoothly. John was fantastic and was always on hand to answer any questions or provide reassurance. Aside from the beautiful facilities, the staff at Crab Manor are really the greatest asset. We chose a perfect, sunny Spring day and we couldn't believe how lucky we were. My favourite part of the day was walking into the beautiful ceremony room surrounded by blue sky, sunshine and golden daffodils in the gardens. After champagne and canapés we went down to the pavilion with our guests for the wedding breakfast. Every course was beautifully presented and tasted even better. So many of our guests commented that, in particular, the sticky toffee pudding was the best they had ever had! I personally enjoyed the famous Crab and Lobster chocolate truffles! There was plenty of room for our additional evening guests and we were all spoiled again with a wonderful spread of curry and chilli con-carne. The jukebox provided plenty of entertainment into the evening and the pavilion and restaurant rooms were the perfect space for people to either have a chat or party on the dance floor! We booked out all the hotel rooms for our guests and we would highly recommend this. People were much more relaxed in the evening knowing that their luxury rooms were only a stone's throw away and equally we enjoyed breakfast together the next day which was the perfect way to say goodbye.
