Since the Village brought in a new chef this past summer, the variety and quality of food at the Sunday buffet, at events there, and in the Bullard Tavern, which they run, has improved. Definitely worth eating there!

This was so delicious. An added benefit to buying buffet tickets here was a reduced entrance fee to the Old Sturbridge Village. Combined, it makes a lovely Thanksgiving Day. The food at the buffet was spectacular.

Okay...Friday lunch...we ignored Tripadvisor reviews and chose to eat here for convenience,rather than venture into the town to save time. BAD CHOICE. I admit I hate to be very so negative, but this is THE Old Sturbridge Village. How could you not make a greater effort to create a more warm and inviting tavernesque atmosphere? Underwhelming and disappointing, to say... More

I will start by saying that I think Brunch in general is a gigantic waste of money if all you are after is some breakfast. If on the other hand you eat like a starving dog then I guess you can get your money's worth. The Brunch at the Tavern did not change my opinion about Brunch in the least... More

Great early American atmosphere, friendly staff, on the grounds of the village, but just above average food. It was fine for lunch and I am glad we experienced it as part of our day at Old Sturbridge Village.

We ate Sunday brunch and ate lunch here during our recent visit to Old Sturbridge Village. The Sunday brunch was a great value - LOVED the chicken pot pie and pot roast! The lunch was great too - especially the lobster mac and cheese! The tavern is right by the entrance to Old Sturbridge Village but before the visitors entry... More

Most of the reviews I've seen are for the brunch...maybe that's the difference. We came here for lunch on a Saturday in July. The staff was very friendly and well intentioned, but there were not enough waitstaff to cover the room successfully. We were frequently out of water. Several items on the menu were unavailable. This was especially unfortunate for... More
