Description: 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.

“Friendly staff, great beer selection, good food”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Good lunch; pleasant outdoor dining”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We were in Williamstown to visit the expanded Clark Arts Museum and found this place by walking in the quaint business district next to the college. I had the turkey club and my companion had a Boston Garden salad. Both were bountiful, excellently prepared, fresh ingredients, and the service was friendly and efficient. The courtyard dining was great as the weather was perfect; the interior dining room contains high top tables and booths and has plenty of space to accommodate a large gathering.

“Nice Pub!”

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!

“Yummy pub close to everything..”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

We stopped here for lunch after walking around Williamstown and touring the farmer's market there…Nice place for good standard menu items..Sandwiches and burgers were tasty the atmosphere al fresco outside was cosy and not as noisy as some of the other downtown places...
