The Purple Pub has been the place to gather in Williamstown since 1973, serving lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Whether you're looking for traditional pub food or delicious entrees, we have you covered. Patrons can drink and dine at the large mahogany bar or in the comfort of the semi-private dining room. Come watch the game on one of our large screen televisions or enjoy a romantic dinner with someone special. Don't forget to try one of our 14 draft beers (we have bottled beer too), served in a frosted glass.

Pleasant lunch with good food that was nothing special. Service was fairly good. Bathroom floors were remarkably sticky on this Saturday afternoon (like your shoes stuck while you lift your foot!). Weird--but made my kids giggle.

This place is very popular so be prepared to wait for a table. The parking is a premium so be prepared to drive around for a parking space. Typical pub food - burgers, etc. We sat at the bar and the bartender was great. They do have gluten free buns for the hamburgers. Ask for the GF hamburger bun to... More

Managed to get an outside table, allowing the family dog to take us to dinner. Good burgers, salads, large selection of draft beers including an excellent double hop IPA. Wait staff was very pleasant.

We are alway looking for the most accessible location as we travel with two wheelchair users. The Purple Pub was recommended to us by a friend, so we decided to try it out. It was extremely accessible, however tables could have been a bit more wheelchair friendly. I am not sure why more restaurants don't follow the lead from star... More

An informal pub , with typical pub menu. Friendly service and welcoming atmosphere. Located in a courtyard just off the main shopping street. They have hi top tables inside and umbrella tables outside They really could use some colorful plants in the courtyard It is very blah looking now and the plants would be eye appeal for people walking by...

Came here on a summer afternoon during the week. Unfortunately came to eat but lunch was over and they did not serve food till after 430 pm, so be prepared. No food after 230 pm till 430 pm. The staff is friendly and there is outdoor seating. The beer selection for drafts is extensive. The interior is sort of industrial... More

Fast service and great people. Within minutes of arriving the owner was at our table asking if we had been taken care of. That speaks volumes to me. The food was damn good for pub food. Oddly enough, I found out that it was the owner several hours later when we ran into him at our local watering hole over... More

We ate here before attending a matinee show at Williamstown Theatre Festival. We were able to sit outside and it was a beautiful day. My partner got the lobster roll, and it was really tasty! A significant portion of tender lobster on a nice roll & house made chips. I ordered a "Williams Burger", fries and a beer. The burger... More
