This place, while I will say is not for everyone, is my favorite pub. The staff is awesome. They do most of their business at the bar, so sometimes you have to grab someone's attention and let them know you want to eat at a table, but they're very polite and knowledgeable and will gladly serve you wherever you sit. They have the best beer list in the area and at good prices too. They have tons of events and outings, so find them on Facebook or ask the staff what's coming up because every event they do is great.
The food is great. Some of the best pub food you can find, and definitely better than anything else in Athol or Orange. I love The Bart. I order mine a little different, but they're always happy to please. I noticed one of the other reviewers was not happy with the speed of service. I know I don't go there if I'm in a hurry. I go there to have fun, meet new people, have outstanding beer and food, and usually end up chit chatting with one of the owners or regulars. They're very welcoming and seem to remember every face that walks in the door.
If I'm in Athol, or Central/West Massachusetts for that matter, I will try my hardest to make my way to the Pig. I moved out of Athol last year (not from there originally either), and while I don't miss Athol, I do miss the Blind Pig and it's staff. I've had some great times there and can't seem to find a menu, beer list, or conversation anywhere else that comes close to those you'll find in this little New England pub. I wish I could steal Sue and Dave and make them open another one wherever I live for the rest of my life.
