Unique wedding venue in Rochdale, located northwest of Manchester. The Royal Toby was a former manor house built in the Edwardian period. Formally the manor house stable block, our newly refurbished Rhyddings function suite provides an excellent venue for your civil ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast, and evening celebrations. The Rhyddings suite is fully self-contained with its own kitchens, dance floor, bar and cloakroom facilities, offering you and your wedding guests exclusive use and all the privacy and personal service that affords. The Study, located in the original manor house building, provides an elegant venue for a civil wedding ceremony. Leading from the former ballroom, its stunning 1920’s Art Deco style interior reflects the grandeur of the building’s history. Known for our excellent hotel restaurants, our chefs offer a modern British wedding breakfast menu, using quality produce and meats from our very own Deckers Butchery. Relax and prepare with your bridal or grooms party in our exclusive, self-contained Bridal Lodge. Then, when the dancing is done, you and your guests can retire to one or our beautiful hotel bedrooms. Historic

Top Wedding Tips

Although it is a difficult task… you need to be selective with your guest list. Sorting your guest list early is important to help you budget as cost per head will most likely be your biggest expense

Your wedding is a day to celebrate the two of you, your life and your experiences together so try to incorporate as many personal touches as possible.

Embrace every moment. Your wedding day will feel like it flies by so it is really important that you appreciate every moment not only with your friends and family but also with each other.

The room looked amazing!
We would like to say a huge, heartfelt thank you for making our wedding day so special. Everyone was so kind and helpful. The food was delicious, the room looked amazing and DJ Chris had the guests leaving up to the dance floor. Thank you Joe for making the day run so smoothly, we would have been lost without you. We'd also like to say a massive thank you for allowing our lovely dog, Finley to stay with us when we were let down by our Kennel, you saved the day there and it was an absolute treat for us to be able to have him in our wedding photo's. We can't praise you all enough for making our day so magical.

Smooth & Stress Free Wedding
We just got married here and we can't speak highly enough of the venue and in particular all the brilliant members of staff. From the start the whole process was made as smooth and stress free as it could possibly be! The Day went better than I ever could have expected. Jordan and Joe were simply superb throughout and nothing was too much trouble. Over all we would highly recommend the Royal Toby for any occasion!

It truly did exceed our expectations!
Hi Chelsea, We just wanted to drop you a quick email to thankyou for our wonderful wedding day. We could not have asked for a more perfect day, it truly did exceed our expectations. Both yourself, Joe and all the waiting and bar staff we amazing and all our guests commented on how friendly and polite you all were! Both myself and Jim felt so well looked after right till the end of the night and we were made to feel very special. The room looked fantastic and it brought a tear to my eye to see such a lovely and very professional layout. Guests have said that it is the best wedding/venue/ hotel that they had ever attended and will be planning on future visits. Please can you pass this message on to Joe and the team to thank them for making our day a beautiful memory and thank you to you for organising it so perfectly.

Everything was just perfect!
We had our wedding ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception here on 6th July 2018 and cannot thank Jordan and the rest of the Royal Toby staff enough. They made the day perfect and nothing was too much trouble, anything we needed they sorted (even fixing my veil and hair when it came out which I’m sure isn’t in their job description) We were in the Rhyddings suite for all three parts of the wedding and the staff did a fantastic job turning the room around after each part and making it look truly magical...Everything was just perfect! Special thank you to Jordan for being an amazing wedding made me feel so at ease over the 18 months of planning, calming me down when I had flappy moments, taking control when I needed help and felt swamped with it all and for just being there at the end of an email or phone call when I needed her! Would 100% recommend The Royal Toby to anyone who is getting married and looking for wedding venues! Wish I could do it all again!! Vanessa & Simon

Exceptionally Well Organised
I attended the marriage of my son and his partner yesterday and what an absolutely brilliant day and evening it was. From start to finish, the whole event was exceptionally well organised by Joe and his fantastic staff and I, on behalf of myself, the bride and groom and all of the guests would like to say a tremendous thank you to them for making the day so special. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Toby to any prospective brides and grooms. Thanks once again for such a wonderful day.
