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.

Large, usually crowded bar with undistinguished menu of salads and burgers with a bit of uninspired pasta thrown into the mix. It has a nice sized patio near the entrance for outdoor enjoyment. This is a good place to ponder over a large selection of beers and what to eat while watching sports on the big screens. It's fine for... More

A great all-around pub: excellent beer list, above-average pub food. I like the airy, well-lit bar area, and it has a nice, small outdoor seating area.

Really good food for what is sort of a sports bar in the heart of Williamstown. Friendly people and good service too.

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.
