Lovely time at family receptions 👍🏼
What a wonderful party they hosted. Food was fantastic and was great playing lawn games with the kids
The Essex Room and staff are amazing! They made our wedding day everything thing and more. We had an unexpected hicup during pictures and they made it go as smooth as possible and made me and the bridal party feel comfortable and at ease and no one had a clue anything happened! Truly amazing! I wish I could do it all over again! They put my vision to life and the food, the guests still can’t stop talking about it! Maureen, Lauren, and Donna are the best and I hope to be in touch with them in the future! Thank you for making my wedding dreams come true! #gobingorgohome #greatestcomebackofalltime

Beautiful place and very friendly staff! My best friend had his wedding here and it was perfect!
Second wedding this year, and both were fun, and done just right! Wish I knew about this before�
We could not of been happier with everything. Our wedding was perfect all thanks to Donna and her amazing staff!! The venue is beautiful and every guest commented how fabulous the food was!!
I had such a great time at the Essex room!!! at Sam and Charlie McNeil wedding. The food was fabulous soup to nuts. If I had a daughter. I would definitely have the wedding here. The chef was fabulous and the after party was amazing. Can't wait to go back for seafood. Thank you donna of the Essex room you were wonderful!!!
We feel so fortunate to have found the Essex Room! Woodman's has long been a family tradition with us and Sam and Charlie wanted to have their reception there but we would have never guessed at the professionalism, expertise and support from Donna Roy and her whole staff. They were there every step of the way! As for the day itself, the room was beautiful, the food was perfect and staff was kind and accommodating. We can't recommend this venue strongly enough!!!

My son's wedding reception was held at the Essex one year ago ,had a great time, food was amazing would recommend it to anyone.
Impressive staff and venue. Daughter's wedding was a blast. Definitely the place to have a wedding reception. Would recommend it to anyone. Can't wait to plan my youngest daughter's wedding there ..........soon.
Great place for corporate events and functions. Menu is awesome. Owned and operated by the Woodman family. Can't beat the views!
I don't even know where to begin! My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Essex Room almost 2 weeks ago and it was more than we could have ever dreamed of. Faye, Norman and Kristen made sure everything was taken care of and my husband and I didn't have to worry about anything (and I worry.. A lot!). 🙂 Maureen was also there to make sure everything ran smoothly which was an extra bonus. Chef Ned accommodated all of our guests various allergies and everyone enjoyed the food. Thank you to the entire Essex Room family for working with us to make sure our day was special! Additionally, thank you providing a great after party space at the Lobster Trap Pub. Our guests had a blast! 🙂
