A nice menu and attentive staff made this a nice choice. We met some nice students from Clark and had a pleasant conversation. Everyone was friendly. The food was typical bar food and it was delicious.

Easy location if you are staying in Williamstown. I wouldn't go out of our way to eat here, but it's fun.

Very friendly and helpful staff, bland and uninspired food. Not bad tasting food, but we were a group of around 12 and not one person commented on the food.

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.

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.
