We had our wedding reception at the Barker on a Sunday (because we had a smaller wedding and there is a minimum guest amount for Saturdays) in June of 2017. Every part of my experience with them was perfect. They made the planning phase so easy with their personalized wedding binder they give you. They had so many great recommendations for other vendors too (I got my dress and florist through their recommendation). The event was perfect and their staff was AMAZING and made everything run so smoothly. I can't say enough good things about them. They even made my husband and I giant to go bags of food to take with us including each of our favorite desserts! I highly recommend this family run business with a long history in Scituate.

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!

Our wedding reception at the Barker Tavern was beyond perfect. I was planning the wedding from out of state, and Becky and the Barker team were very flexible in meeting with my parents, and working around when my fiancee and I would be in town to plan. The reception hostesses made sure everything stayed on schedule, and I loved how the whole team made sure the night went as my fiancee and I had envisioned - with plenty of time for dancing and mingling. Everyone I met was incredibly professional, personable, and fun. I look forward to returning to the Barker for an anniversary dinner.

From start to finish our experience with Barker Tavern was phenomenal. Becky handled everything we could have possibly needed. She made us feel like we were family from the moment we walked through the door. I could call at any time with any question and Becky would have so much helpful information for us or even just that reassuring advice when things felt overwhelming. The staff there was incredible. All of our guests raved about the food even weeks later. The location was perfect for that nautical theme we had pictured and the lighthouse pictures we wanted. My husband and I were over the moon with the outcome of our special day.

The Barker Tavern provided the perfect ceremony and reception setting for my wedding this past March. The planning process was stress-free due to Becky's informed guidance, and the vendors she recommended were incredible (there was no pressure to use their vendors, and we ended up going about half and half). The actual ceremony and reception were handled expertly--the staff changed the room over in mere minutes, and the room itself was gorgeous--pretty and romantic. Overall, I can't say enough about the Barker. The fact that there are no fees or set-up charges made this an affordable, perfect choice for our wedding venue.

I had my wedding reception at the Barker Tavern last November; it was perfect! Planning a wedding is so stressful and overwhelming but Becky makes it so much easier. Not only was the whole reception absolutely beautiful, all my guests could not stop talking about how delicious the food was. The service during the reception was wonderful, they made me and my husband feel very special. I could not have pictured my wedding anywhere else but the Barker Tavern!!

My new husband and I just got married at the Barker Tavern this past Saturday. I couldn't wait to write a review. We had a small wedding there (about 25) that included our ceremony and reception. I'm absolutely delighted that we made that decision. From the moment that I met Becky she gave us a warm hug and sat Adam and I down to go over details with us. She made planning a wedding stress free and enjoyable. We had a quick engagement so from when we went to visit the Barker in August for the first time to the actual wedding a short while later, we never felt rushed our hurried. I would receive emails from Becky to check in with us and to see if we needed anything. I truly felt as if we were the only ones getting married there! I know how busy Becky is and for her to take the time to sit with us or be available whenever we needed her, I am forever grateful. The Barker itself is beautiful and the food was phenomenal! It was truly the best day of my life and a huge thank you to Becky and the Barker staff for making our wedding day a memorable one for us and our guests. If you're thinking of getting married at the Barker, think no more and do it! You will not regret it!

From the start of our wedding planning, we only went and saw Barker Tavern after looking at their venue online and we booked the day we saw it for the first time, we just knew it is where we wanted to get married. From the initial stages to the tasting and the final days before the wedding, Becky was so helpful and it was a pleasure to work with her. The day of the wedding the attendants working the room were so helpful and we appreciated everything. We couldn't imagine our wedding day being anywhere else. The food was great and all our guests have continued to rave about it, the atmosphere and decor of the Williams Room are gorgeous. Thank you again to the Barker Tavern for making our wedding day so special!

We had our wedding at Barker Tavern in July and it was UNREAL. Could Becky be more amazing??? Seriously!!!! The food is out of this world and the room is gorgeous! This was the first and last placed we looked when planning our wedding. We felt no pressure at all to book, and as we were wrapping up my now husband looked at Becky and said " I like you! You're like my mom.... We are having our wedding here!" We booked that day. I worried about planning a wedding I had just started a new job that was far from home and in the midst was offered a promotion that was very in depth and let me tell you! Becky did everything for us! NO STRESS! When I say this was the easiest thing I have ever done in my life, plan a wedding in 6 months, I mean it! I will forever recommend the Barker. Everyone she recommends is amazing.... Go with them! The Jordan family has weddings down to a science. The staff amazing!!!!! I never ever felt like we were being rushed, that a clock was being watched, nothing!!!! When we were leaving everything as packed to perfection and handed off to our parents. This place needs more than 5 stars!!! What I loved most about Becky was that she was not trying to get you for every penny! Just one of bathe many examples...We had bought a card box and she told us to return it, keep the $40 and use what she had which was gorgeous of course! Oh my god she is amazing. I wish that there was one flaw I could write and I was discussing this with family that I can't even critique one thing and they totally agreed. I can't believe that I did not have one flaw in my wedding....unheard of! Becky to you and your family, you are truly amazing and thank you so much for making my wedding day the best day of my life! Xoxo Carolyn and Kevin Patten
