  • 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!

    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!

  • 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!

  • 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 t... Read more

  • 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.

  • We were so pleased with everything for our wedding at the Barker in early September. The entire staff could not have been more polite, professional or attentive. We found it very easy to work with Becky and the rest of her staff for everything leading up to and through the day of the event. Leading up to the wedding, Becky was an asset to making everything run smoothly. She was able to answer all of our questions and made planning a breeze. She was able to recommend a DJ to us who had worked with her team in the past. This played a role (I think) in the event running so smoothly. Her staff was able to assist us in moving through each event of the night with ease. We were able to spend the night with our guests and did not have to worry about a thing. The only thing that could have made our experience more positive would have been more flexibility with what we could try at the food tasting. We were thrilled with the food night of the wedding, but would have like if we could have sam... Read more

  • I cannot recommend the Barker Tavern and Becky, their coordinator, more! My husband and I knew the moment we walked in that this was the venue for us. The history of the tavern was a huge draw right off the bat but the reception hall too was just so beautiful. It's light, airy, romantic and so versatile. We also loved that it was a family run business - everyone is involved and so accommodating and kind. It also helped that the price was just right, in fact I feel like we got more than we paid for which is hard to say in the wedding business. We also had a relatively intimate wedding of 70 people, so it was a bit easier to keep costs down, but that being said, we were able to choose a more expensive package to provide the best experience for us and our guests. No matter what package you get though, one thing is for sure, THIS IS THE BEST FOOD YOU WILL EVER HAVE AT A WEDDING. I'm not kidding. Before I got married, I was in 16 weddings and went to over 25 and every single on of those bri... Read more

  • Great venue! Becky is great to work with. She is very fair and helpful. We had a great reception. The room was beautiful. The food was excellent. The only drawbacks of the Barker is the lack outdoor space, no patio for guests. Overall, the venue is great though. No regrets.

  • After visiting many different venues on the South Shore, my husband and I decided to have our wedding reception at the Barker Tavern. We were not disappointed! The event room is gorgeous, the food is incredible, and the staff work very hard to make every moment the best day of your life. My only suggestion would be to confirm who is working with you during the evening of the big day so all the staff know exactly what your expectations are. Happy to say it was truly the best day of my life. September 2017 "Pizza Bride"

  • The Barker Tavern is the most elegant venue for your wedding. The location of the historic estate is magnificent. The beautiful dining room is spacious with gorgeous windows and high ceilings. Your guests will feel so attended to from the minute they arrive. I loved the bride's suite upstairs where the wedding party gathered before the ceremony. Becky and staff were so professional. They orchestrated the timing of the event perfectly. Having the wedding AND the reception at the Barker was fantastic as it was flawlessly choreographed by their capable staff. In a blink of an eye, the Barker staff transformed our ceremony space into a dining area, all while our guests enjoyed a lively coctail hour, replete with music and h'or deurves. The wedding party took this time to have photos taken in the lush gardens outside. The air smelled like flowers and the sea; it was all so wonderful. The tables were lovely once the guests sat for dinner after our first dance. The food was divine. My... Read more
