Great standard fare

Shall I compare it to a summer's day? It art more lovely and more temperate. The pub's terrace under an umbrella in the sun is not to be beaten. Check out the photo of a local Shakespeare scholar on the wall. Heartwarming. Good, reliable pub food and beer anytime of day you like.

It was a beautiful summer night and there was several customers sitting outside and that's probably where we should have ate. We chose to sit inside and it is dingy in there. The tables near the bar are awful and there were scratches and dings everywhere on the table and chairs. The whole place inside is like this. The server... More

My wife and I had lunch at The Pub in Amherst, Massachusetts. It was the first really nice day of late Spring and we were looking for outdoor dining. The Pub fit our criteria. While the view from their patio is of a parking lot the food and service made up for the lack of scenery. We both had burgers... More

When all the other resturants in Amherst are full, you cna get a seat at The Pub. The reason is fair food and bad service. We had a hamburger with no flavor and a turkey dinner with gristle. As fkr service. We sat for a long time before our waiter arrived. Then waited again for drinks. Food was served by... More

Tried this place out on a Sunday afternoon. The place was nearly empty and the service was prompt. My boyfriend ordered the Pub burger and I ordered chicken enchiladas. My boyfriend said the bun was overcooked and crunchy but other than that it was good. The fries were like a skinny version of the fries you would get at a... More

I heard about "The Pub" from an article listing the best burgers in Massachusetts. We found ourselves in the Amherst area yesterday. As it's name implies it has a pub atmosphere. It is very nice inside and the waitress we had was good. Many students and faculty from the University of Massachusetts eat and work there. The cheeseburger I had... More

The Pub has been in Amherst for many years serving the students and locals. They have an extensive menu and attract a large lunch and dinner crowd. Families are welcome. The bar area is large and many students / young professionals gather after work on Fridays. From their burgers to fresh fish, the food is prepared well and served by... More
