October Wedding at the Barker!
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!Sent on 11/06/2019
The Barker Tavern's reply:Thank you, Beth, for your kind words. You have been such a pleasure to work with and YOU did a great job planning your wedding in a short amount of time. You looked stunning (and John looked so handsome) and thank you for sharing your photos with us. The drone photos were amazing. Wishing both of you the very, very best and hope to see you soon!!!!

We had our wedding reception at The Barker Tavern on December 29,2018 and it was nothing short of a fairytale. From the minute we set foot in the Barker, we knew it was the perfect spot for us. The decorations, sparkling lights, dazzling fireplace, and warm reception were incredible. Becky and her staff were attentive, kind, and genuinely involved throughout the whole process to make our day the best it could possibly be. Judy helped us through every step of our reception and kept us calm. By the time I reached the end of the process, I felt like I had made a lifelong friend in Becky. Every day, we look through our pictures and remember what a wonderful, special day it was. All of our guests were amazed with the beauty of the room, the delicious food, and the quality of the service. We highly recommend The Barker!Sent on 02/06/2019

I had my wedding reception at The Barker Tavern last Saturday (9/8/18). Becky and her staff are amazing, wonderful people. You will not worry about anything with your special day in their hands. I could not have planned a destination wedding without Becky's amazing help. That plus a beautiful, twinkling venue with pristine gardens made for a perfect, perfect day. Thanks again to Becky, Judy and the rest of The Barker staff for making our wedding simply perfect!Sent on 09/15/2018

If you're looking to host an event by the water, you can't go wrong with the Barker Tavern. A beautiful, rustic 18th century establishment in Scituate. Gorgeous gardens, awesome food, and Becky is one of our favorite people in the industry.
Family operation that for years has successfully created perfect memories for bridal couples and their families. Barker Tavern has a warm feeling once you go inside. The staff caters to all your needs without asking. Beckie runs the wedding day with smoothness you never see. They handle all the details. All you need to do is bring your dancing shoes. As a vender, Beckie sees to our needs from the moment we enter to the last possible job on our list. As a Venue, they are very professional. Beckie lists a group of professional venders that have done many weddings. She trusts their professionalism......you can trust her recommendations.
My band has performed at the Barker Tavern a number of times at The Barker Tavern and each time our experience could not have been better. The staff is always very organized, friendly and really understands how to run a perfect, fun wedding. The Williams Room is beautiful, the food top notch -and guests always enjoy coming to the seaside town of Scituate. Can't beat it! - John Harris, The Shine Band
