|Sitting at the center of Old Sturbridge Village's recent threshold redesign is a modern adaptation of an 1830s rural New England tavern. The facility seats more than 300 patrons in four distinct dining rooms, reflecting the atmosphere, décor, and social functions of a country tavern's public gathering places.
Located just outside New England's largest living history museum, The Tavern at Old Sturbridge Village presents the foodways, receipts (recipes), furnishings, ambiance, and community spirit of a "licensed house" that provided early New Englanders with a world of information, entertainment, recreation, socialization, citizenship, and great Yankee dining!
In the spacious Federal Ballroom and adjoining Federal Parlor, find working hearths (and occasional hearth-cooking demonstrations). In the Tap Room, sample the kind of hospitality early American travelers would have enjoyed. In the Grecian Parlor, experience the gracious service and elegant appointments of a period "ladies parlor."
The Oliver Wight Tavern is the perfect unique location for weddings, corporate gatherings, and events tailored to your special needs.
