We absolutely loved our wedding reception at the Barker Tavern. We wanted to have a fabulous dinner party and a fun night of music and dancing. At the Barker Tavern, we got all that and more in a beautiful New England setting. Our guests raved about the food, both during the cocktail hour and the seated dinner. The New England feel of the colonial tavern and the coastal setting made the reception extra special for our out-of-town guests. The Barker Tavern and its excellent staff just made it all shine. We had a great experience working with Becky and her team. We were planning our wedding from out of state and they could not have been more accommodating, knowledgeable, or nice. They get it right when it comes to listening to the couple about the kind of wedding reception they want and bringing the couple’s vision to life, while also sharing their insights and experience at the right moments to help make things work smoothly. They were also incredibly agile and helpful on the day of the wedding. While we had hoped for a sunny day, it turned out to be cool and drizzly. We weren’t sure what to do about the family photos we had planned to take at Old Scituate Light. Becky suggested that the two of us head out there for some photos, while they would quickly move several of the tables they had already set for the reception so we could take family photos in front of the fireplace when we returned. It worked out perfectly. The wait staff, bartenders, and wedding coordinators were very attentive and professional. They were on top of every detail, making it easy for us simply to enjoy our special day and celebrate with family and friends. Thank you to everyone at the Barker Tavern for making our wedding reception so elegant and so wonderful!
The Barker Tavern was a fabulous venue for our wedding. Becky and the rest of the staff at the Barker Tavern was amazingly friendly and accommodating. The food was fantastic!
