Husband and I shared a late lunch. Tried the turkey chili which was on the bland side but was good for no heartburn afterwards and the beef barley which was the soup of the day (also on the bland side).

My wife and I stopped for lunch at the Purple Pub before visiting the Clark art museum. It couldn't have been better. She had a tasty pesto chicken sandwich and I had a baby kale salad, and our waiter mentioned I could get it with salmon. I'm so glad I did, the salmon was the perfect match to the spicy... More

The Purple Pub has been remodeled completely since its days as the old Spring Street town bar. Now it has great IPA's, multiple TV's, and a nice menu.

Had dinner here on Saturday night. Lucky to get a table at 6:30, but it got quieter by the time we left. Lots of TVs to watch the college football games. Service was very good, prices are reasonable. We shared the "Mount Greylock" fries (french fries with cheese sauce and lots of bacon), I had the Cubano sandwich, my wife... More

Nice pub and nice crowd where you get exactly what you expect in this college town pub near Williams College ein North Adams. Can't wait to go back when it is warmer to enjoy the outdoor seating.

We were looking for casual American food and tried the Purple Pub on what turned out to be their weekly Trivia night. The pub was crowded with customers eager to play the game, but we managed to get a table and order fish and chips and adult beverages. The service was friendly and the food nicely prepared and promptly delivered,... More

The place looks great on the outside. It os a not ce looking yard. Pleasant place to have a beer. Food is average. We had the meatloaf which is a house specialty. Portion was generous and flavour OK, but a bit dry. Onion rings were awesome. It was trivia night, which was a bit of a drag if you are... More

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.
