We were looking for someplace special to have our Thanksgiving meal so we chose the Oliver Wight Tavern. This tavern is located just outside the Old Sturbridge Village. There is definitely the colonial feel to this place. The ambiance is great. I would say the...More

Was here for an event and the building is lovely! Historic and up to date at the same time! It is at the entrance to Old Sturbridge Village so you can visit without going through the Village! Very nice venue!

We had a great lunch here! Food was great- between us all we had a veggie wrap, mac n cheese, hamburger, french fries, chicken tenders, and fish and chips. It was all cooked perfectly. It was all very reasonably priced as well.

We had a banquet for our Early American Industries Assoc. here last week. The food was excellent, with many choices and very well done. The atmosphere is really charming and the service was delightful. Excellent Job.
