In my internet searches, I recently stumbled upon the Red Lion Inn in Cohasset – and from the pictures of the venue, it looks exactly like the type of place I want to have my wedding at! However, the reviews on the internet have been incredibly mixed – I’m not really sure what to believe. Are there any brides out there who’ve recently had their wedding at the Red Lion who would be willing to share their experience? Any brides who are having their wedding at the Red Lion this year? I would love to hear more about it!

I attended a wedding there in August of last summer (2009). I don’t mean to alarm you, but the food was terrible and there is no AC.
I was not present for cocktail hour because we of the wedding party were shuttled down to the beach for pictures. However, when we returned, the venue was just as melting-point hot as it was when we left. The food took so long to serve that people were up dancing in between courses. The salad was wilted and tasteless, the steak was cold, bleeding, and raw (and thus completely inedible), no water glasses were refilled, coffee was taken away almost immediately, and the cake was dry and stale.
The lack of climate control meant that everone was sweating and miserable and not particularly inclined to dance. Space was cramped, and the upper balcony was only used for the guestbook.
A single positive note: the wedding coordinater was in control and calm the entire time, and was accommodating during a personal emergency.
The place looks very pretty, particularly at night, and I can only hope that other weddings were more successful than the one I attended.

@BostonBaby: Thanks for sharing! That’s exactly what I was afraid – it seems like the weddings there are either fantastic or disastrous. I wouldn’t want to deal with a venue that is so unreliable. And good food is very important to me! I guess I will just have to keep looking…

If you are looking for a cape wedding Chatham Bars Inn is amazing (but def. on the pricey side).
