The Innkeepers

The Bull Run has been a Tavern for centuries and in my family since the 1940‘s. George Tocci and I met on the premises when he asked me about the title of the book I was carrying. That first conversation led to a lifelong romance and the good fortune to be able to meld our passion for food and music in a place where we both have deep roots. 


For six decades, my brother and my father before him ran the family business. We took the reins on New Year’s Eve of 2009 and we now employ 74 people including a wide array

of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and even

a few outlaws.

Our mission is simple: buy local; treat the staff and the talent like gold; support the localevents and institutions that truly create community; and bring world-class entertainment to this rustic setting in north central Massachusetts.

We know the intimate atmosphere at Bull Run is one-of-a-kind and we sincerely believe our Tavern is lucky for love; maybe that’s why so many betrothals, weddings, and special anniversaries take place here as the decades roll by.

We love operating this multi-faceted restaurant,

concert series and function venue. We believe in smiling service and a relaxed style we call “Boots off comfort.”

The tired and thirsty traveler has been stopping along this Great Road since 1740 and that legacy means that at Bull Run, we are committed to preservation and sustainability.

We are pleased to announce that as of 2020, we have become a Certified Green establishment, one of the few statewide.


We invite you to continue the tradition of honoring our shared history and to relax in the authentic atmosphere of Bull Run.

"Often copied, unsurpassed."
