Something for Everyone
In 1997, Tuckerman’s Restaurant & Tavern started out as a tavern to accommodate small town libations, musical gatherings, and the quintessential Valley lifestyle. It was a counterpart of The New England Inn, where a dining room already existed, but the Hoopers wanted a bar off the side that provided music and a cool hangout spot. At the time, the kitchen had two lines, one catering to fine dining and the other to pub fare.
With an original capacity of 40 or so people, the tavern evolved into a full blown restaurant over the last 20 years. It was originally owned and run by the Hooper family with Todd Neil managing the restaurant. In 2008 the entire property was sold in April and exactly four years later to the day, son Adam Hooper and Todd Neil repurchased the property to officially become co-owners of the Tuckerman’s Restaurant & Tavern everyone knows and loves today. Whether you’re looking for quiet and ambient dining or a pub and sports bar atmosphere, Todd and Adam have created a place with something for everyone. Today, Tuckerman’s Restaurant & Tavern prides itself on the values of providing quality service, exceptional food prepared entirely on site, and an all around enjoyable atmosphere for visitors and locals alike.
Remembering Todd Neil
In July of 2018, we lost our very own Todd Neil and, with his passing, a very special part in our hearts. Todd was the heart and soul of our restaurant, he was our leader. No day was complete without seeing him smiling, laughing, and making people feel special. Todd was always bustling around taking care of every person that walked through our doors, including his employees. He aimed to please and to entertain, but most importantly, he was the type of kind and caring person that the world needs more of. We will always keep Todd close to our hearts to guide us in taking care of our customers, friends, and each other so that his cheerful and wonderful spirit will always live on within Tuckerman’s walls and beyond. Rest in peace, Todd Neil, you will be forever loved and missed.
