Bradford Tavern in Rowley Is Closing

A family-friendly North Shore restaurant known for its rustic atmosphere and its working fireplaces is shutting down permanently.

According to a source, Bradford Tavern in Rowley is closing for good, with a Facebook post from the Haverhill Street spot saying that its last day will be Saturday, December 19 while mentioning that "Unfortunately, the events of the last 8 months, with the extended closure and continued loss of business since reopening due to COVID-19, it is impossible for us to remain open." The post does indicate that gift certificates, loyalty points, and bonus dollars will still be able to be used at their two affiliated restaurants--the Sylvan Street Grille locations in Peabody and Salisbury.

Bradford Tavern first opened approximately 10 years ago, with the restaurant featuring comfort food and classic American fare along with beer, wine, and cocktails.

The address for Bradford Tavern is 87 Haverhill Street (Route 133), Rowley, MA, 01969. The website for the place can be found at
