We were able to host our wedding this fall even with COVID restrictions in place. Dave and Jen are fantastic to work with and made our lives easy planning the wedding, the took care of everything!!! We ended up hosting a small group of 25 family members which the staff here did such a great job handling. The food being made here and provided was so good it’s crazy! The chef in charge has created such great dishes. The Staff the night of our event was first class. We were made completely comfortable even throughout all that has happened and if you enjoy historic downtown New Market, this is your place. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone looking to host a wedding or just an event in general. You won’t be disappointed!Sent on 10/28/2020
