This was our reception venue, the ceremony was held at home.
We already knew the food was great as well as the ambiance as we eat there on a regular basis. Becky also provided an easy approach to the reception, which we had in the New England room, the restraunt itself. Everyone was so nice and helpful with a bare minimal problem and even that was resolved promptly - so none of the guests ever knew. THey were flexible and helpful and all our guests raved about the food and the atmosphere. Our wedding was 44 people, the New England room was perfect size for this as nobody felt cramped and we also didn't appear to be in an auditorium!
Highly reccomend this venue - no hidden anything, so it was easy to maintain our budget too.

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!
