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.

Stopped by here for dinner, at a slow time of the holiday season - schools out, and the place is pretty much deserted. Yet this restaurant, set back from the main road, has a fine menu, is open and serving outstanding dinners. I had a penne shrimp special - perfectly seasoned with spinach, EVO, al dente pasta, fresh tomato and... More

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.
