...a great lunch can be had within these rather plain, if not ugly walls. The clam chowder is stellar, full of chunks of clam and thick, The choices of local, craft beers are good and can complement whatever one orders from a fairly typical pub menu for this part of the world.

Went here after dinner on friends suggestions, I was very impressed, if I still lived in New Bedford this would be my local hangout. Its not that large of a place, but its one of those that I can tell everyone knows your name. We only had after dinner drinks, but very accommodating there was a band, not too loud... More

Just started working in New Bedford, MA and needed a sports bar so I could watch my Steelers on Monday Night Football. Anyway, the friendly staff at the nearby Fairfield Inn & Suites recommended the Rose Alley Ale House so I walked over there and hopped a seat at the bar (service at the bar is always better). As I'm... More

Love the beer selection which changes frequently. Lots of great pub food choices well done and some nice twists. The stuffed quahog is the best in the area hands down.

We had spent the morning at the New Bedford Whaling Museum near by and saw the Ale House from their observation deck so we decided to stop in for a little liquid refreshment and ordered calamari & chowda. Both were excellent. The lobster rolls were ok and our kids ordered fish tacos that they barely touched. I took the fish... More
