Hanover Tavern is a unique and beautifully restored historic venue, offering charm, history, and exceptional food against the background of colonial Virginia. Rental options range from the historic floor (19th Century) or our intimate dining room to the 3,000 square foot E.J. Wade Coach House, a historically inspired modern events center. Our spaces can accommodate events of all types and sizes. It is perfect for wedding ceremonies (indoor and outdoor), receptions, rehearsal dinners, bridal luncheons, and engagement parties. Just 20 minutes north of Richmond, the Tavern is easily accessible from interstates 64, 95 and 295.
Review Hanover Tavern
Thank you for submitting your review. All submissions are reviewed before being published.
My husband and I had our wedding and reception here. The ceremony was at the historic courthouse and the reception at the coach house. Tammy Anderson was our wedding coordinator. We cannot adequately express in a review how wonderful our experience was with the venue or with Tammy, specifically. We contacted Tammy less than two months prior to our tentative wedding date hoping to "throw together" a quick wedding because my Dad is sick. She was incredible from day one. It was very clear our wedding day was in the most competent of hands and planning it in about 6 weeks became a fun, rather than stressful experience. Not only was the planning a joy with Tammy by our side, but she also made everything about our wedding day feel seamless.
The venue provided a beautiful and charming setting for our ceremony, our reception, and even getting ready - we thoroughly enjoyed the groom and bridal suites in the Tavern with lunch/mimosas/beer provided. Everything we could have needed for the reception was provided (Set-up, tables, linens, plates, etc). The coach house is simple and beautiful with all of the exposed wood and great lighting, so the only decoration we opted to add were floral centerpieces for our tables. We chose a number of buffet-style heavy hors d'oevres and a mac and cheese bar. It turned out great and many guests remarked on the food. Servers, bartenders, and other event staff members were all top notch.
We are still in awe over how everything came together in such a short time frame and will be marveling over our perfect day and our incredible experience with Tammy and her team over at Hanover Tavern for years to come. HIGHLY recommend!
I got so many compliments on our wedding day. Even without a tablescape plan (because my brain stopped working at 5am this morning when I got up), they made everything look gorgeous. It also helped that mother nature blessed us with sunshine for my outdoor ceremony.
100% perfect! My now husband and I were just married at The Hanover Tavern this past weekend and it was...PERFECT. It honestly couldn't have been any better than what they gave to us that weekend. Our coordinator Tammy was with us every step of the way and made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. The wait staff was so friendly and nice. Setup to clean-up, they were all there to help. Even now, after the wedding, people are still telling us how wonderful their service was and how beautiful the location was. The food is DELICIOUS as well. 10/10!
