  • The Barker Tavern was the perfect venue for our reception! Becky was wonderful to work with from the very beginning when we first visited the Barker Tavern. She answered all of our questions and was super helpful in choosing vendors. The venue inside is already gorgeous so we didn't need alot of extra stuff to decorate with, we were able to add small things to add our touch and personality to the room! The day off, we had Judy as our wedding consultant (included in the cost). she was great in keeping us on track of timing and what was coming up next. Our family and friends LOVED the food and the atmosphere of the place, we never stopped getting compliments! I loved how everything was included in the cost (appetizers, cake, the variety of meal options) were all great! There was something for everyone! We had a 107 people with a band in the room and it was perfect! I would recommend the Barker to anyone!
