The Bradford Tavern in Rowley has reopened under new owners and new management! According to their Facebook page, the owners of the popular Fox Creek Tavern have purchased the Bradford Tavern on Haverill St and it reopened just last week. We happened to be driving by and hungry, so we stopped and were delighted at our experience. I was especially happy to note that Gloucester haddock was used in the blackened fish tacos I ordered. Jim got an Italian panini sandwich and ate every bit. He also enjoyed the Hoisin meatball appetizer recommended by the server. The Rosemary Grapefruit margarita hit the spot for me.
The setting is basically the same as you may remember. We sat in the bar area and it was comfortable, well lit with spacious seating. It was our server’s very first day and she did admirably (I am sorry I did not take note of her name). There were a fair number of customers for Monday lunch and all seemed to be enjoying their experience as well. We will be returning and hope to see you there!
