But not much else. The space is lacking in character and charm. Staff was friendly but really messed up our order - granted there were 12 of us at lunch. Food was very average. Not bad at all, but not worth going back. Some in the group really liked the chips and blue cheese but I thought they were borderline... More

Go only on Tuesday night when Alex is the bartender. She is always cheerful and happy to serve you.The bartenders who work the other nights are grumpy and inattentive.

Nothing special, but the beers are tasty and the wings are decent. Burgers were not as I remembered back in the old restaurant.

The slowest poorest service in our 3-week tour of the States. Almost impossible to get service yet was only third full. The manager serving at the bar seemed to be the person holding up the service. Took about 30 minutes to get a drink after ordering. Looked around and everyone similarly waiting. Why go here when there are better options?... More

Recently had a chance to visit the Purple Pub on an adult weekend getaway! Very cute place inside. Clean, friendly staff. I ordered the southwestern chili, came with nachos on the side. Fairly priced at $4.95 for a bowl. Nice portion, filling, tasty, turkey meat, which I liked. Happened to peak at other orders coming out of the kitchen. The... More

Stopped for a beer and snack. Almost impossible to get service. Bartender aggravated when I asked to pay with a credit card. She had to go to the kitchen? By the way it was about 1/3 full.

Party of eight had not problem with our order, quickly served. Great selection of burgers and other pub fare. A little odd on the beer menu - handwritten - but we got through it and everyone enjoyed a pleasant time outside. Very friendly service. Nice afternoon lunch.

As we drove around Williamstown, and followed along Spring Street; we were intrigued by the name on the beautiful brick building tucked away on a lovely courtyard. The Purple Pub. So very glad we stopped by, and enjoyed an afternoon lunch. Though there is ample dining inside this pub, we chose to eat outside on the courtyard under an umbrella... More

Visiting the area, we were wandering around looking for a place for lunch. The Purple Pub looked interesting, and we went in. The waitress was charming, with a big smile, and very helpful. She truly seemed to enjoy her work, and certainly helped us enjoy lunch. The NE clam soup was terrific, as were the burgers. We both enjoyed the... More
