We go here often and have yet to be disappointed. Especially nice in summer when it's warm enough to sit outside. We all love the burgers, soups are really good, and actually we haven't been disappointed in anything on the menu. They don't rush you and welcome you back at each visit. Try it and see for yourself.

The courtyard dining was great as the... More

Well, when visiting in Williamstown you wont find to many options to party in. Though, the purple pub is great place to have a cold beer and great company!

We were passing through town and looking for a place to catch a World Cup game. The food was solid, the service was excellent and there were plenty of screens to catch the action.

My favs where the hamburger,... More

A busy pub in small town Williamstown. They offer a surpt large menu of sandwiches, burgers and more. Good salads and tasty chili. Williamstown has limited choices but the Pub would be worth a stop even if it was somewhere else.

Cool staff and a really great location on Spring Street. Food is good. I have enjoyed many evenings in the pub drinking and relaxing. I cannot wait for summer and the theater crowd...
