We have three (3) rooms available for private events:

  • The Wine Loft can accommodate a minimum of 18 people and a maximum of 28. 
  • The Boarding Room a minimum of 20 people and a maximum of 40 people
  • The Gathering Room a minimum of 40 people and a maximum of 50 people. NOTE: The Gathering room is available for bookings for October, 2021 or later

The Wine Loft and Boarding Room are on the second floor so all attendees must be able to go up/down a flight of stairs. The Gathering Room is on the main floor and has a private bar. 

We have been hosting private events at the tavern for over 40 years. One of our greatest pleasures is seeing a couple who held their wedding reception or rehearsal dinner in one of our private rooms coming back years later to enjoy their anniversary dinner. This happens frequently! We also love seeing families with their toddlers eating dinner in the dining room who originally were here for the baby shower. We host many different types of private parties - baby/bridal showers, wedding rehearsal dinners, business meetings - and it is so gratifying to see those folks visit us again. And again. And again.

You can see pictures and each of our private rooms here.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT PRICING: we give you the bottom line right up front! Our pricing is all inclusive: tax and service are included in the prices we quote on our menus. If you are comparing costs with other venues, please be aware that most venues have fine print that says tax and gratuity is not included and as much as 18-28% will be added to your bill. We don’t do that. We know you need to know your final price for budgeting purposes. No surprise add-ons here! 

When you book a private event with us you and your guests’ enjoyment is our top priority! We know that organizing events may be stressful. Choosing the menu, guests who do not RSVP, decorations; a million details. We can help. Our 40+ years of experience will make planning your event easy, fun, and non-stressful! We have a checklist available that you can use to streamline the planning process.

We have a variety of menu options available: dinner or luncheon buffet-style, sit-down dinner or luncheon with pre-chosen, served entrees, cocktails and hors d’ouevres with both passed hors d’ouevres and buffet-style heavy appetizers. Click here to review all of the menus.
