Would definitely recommend!

My wife and I used Hanover Tavern for our wedding, and we had a remarkable experience. Tammy made our day stress free and enjoyable. She was a Godsend! They handled the decorating, lighting, the agenda, everything! Quaint historical setting and cozy atmosphere created a great experience for the guests. Would definitely recommend!

We had the best day of our lives thanks to the beautiful setting and staff at Hanover Tavern!

We recently had our rehearsal dinner and wedding at the Hanover Tavern and couldn't have dreamed up a more perfect place to begin our lives together. We worked with Tammy Anderson for over a year preparing for our wedding, and from the moment we met her until the moment we had our big day, Tammy was there every step of the way. She answered all our questions (and my family's questions) and kept me at ease making everything seem so simple throughout the whole process. Any request we had she was happy to help make possible. By the end of it all, we truly felt that Tammy had become a part of our family and was really just there celebrating along with us. I can't say enough nice things about this place. The food, the staff, the professionalism and expertise was unmatched! We had the best day of our lives thanks to the beautiful setting and staff at Hanover Tavern. Thank you thank you!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I have too many good things to say! From the first phone call to the first visit to our wedding night and morning after, the staff at Hanover Tavern treated us just like family. Tammy worked with us from the beginning to end and we could not have asked for any one better. We loved every single moment of our wedding process. The staff was wonderful and the food was amazing. The coach house and patio made for the best wedding ever. We are just so incredibly grateful for each and every one of you who made our night (and past year of planning) so unforgettable. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything.

We booked Hanover Tavern for our wedding reception, after being married across the street at the historic Hanover courthouse. AMAZING experience. Tammy at Hanover Tavern was there every step and answered all of my questions, and I had a ton. I highly recommend this as a venue for anyone looking for a low key, intimate celebration, party or event. We had approx. 45 people (including 10 children!), and it was perfect. They made our special day so easy and carefree! Beautiful decorations, delicious food (try the pulled pork YUM), and a wonderful calm environment. The staff was so great, it was like they were just part of the group of friends, helping out to make the day great! Plus it was super affordable! By far the best choice in the area for a budget! I really enjoyed this who experience and can't wait to celebrate our anniversary with them in the future.

Wonderful Experience

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!

Gorgeous Day!

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!

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!
