I come for the burgers, which are always tasty. Its a sports pub so expect some noise, the staff are nice but erratic service.

Excellent "true American" burgers and friendly service at the Purple Pub. Great choice of local ale beers. Sit at the bar and chat with the people around you, welcome to the New England taste of life.

The waiter was very good and understanding, but the food was marginal. Avoid the fish tacos unless you like dry food and black avocados. Expect to pay an additional charge for more salsa and sour cream.

We had lunch here after touring Williams. The whole experience was very average. The atmosphere is loud and chaotic, the service as average, and the food was nothing special. It worked to feed us but that is about all. The location is fantastic. I hope...More

I love sitting outside in the summer - but the patio area is not always very clean (bird poop). The food is fine - just what you'd expect - but nothing super creative or interesting. The times I have been there, the service has been...More

When we were there in October there were many family groups with school-age children because they were having a weekly game night and many kids and parents actively participated in the obviously popular game.

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.
