We were at Roberts for a wedding where the bride and groom chose to use the yard for their ceremony and the restaurant as their reception hall. While the resulting meal and the wait staff during the reception were excellent, the preparations leading up to the ceremony ended up being a bit more stressful than necessary. For one, some of the staff members were initially a bit rude. Two, the people in charge either failed to communicate or were constantly changing their minds. For example, the set-up time was not clear which made it difficult for the wedding party to set up all the details in the reception hall. For another, the wedding coordinator and staff changed so many times over the planning period that the bride ended up never meeting the latest coordinator and having to arrange everything via telephone just a few days prior. Then, despite the time they said they would arrive to help arrange, a lot of the staff members were late. The general feeling was that the staff and management were a bit unorganized, jaded, and inflexible.
Still, the restaurant itself was beautiful with that quaint country feel. It holds about eighty people comfortably, a hundred if you have to stretch it. The bathrooms are a bit older, but then people can rest in the library and other rooms. The food was excellent, especially the steak, and the service during the meal - superb. Most guests and the bride herself were not aware of any shortcomings on the day of. So, if the place speaks to you, go for it. Just consider being a bit flexible about the details because it'll make things easier.
