We visited the purple heather on Friday January 13th to watch the band Freedom Train. We thought we arrived early but apparently we were already too late to get a table. Next thing you know the owner/manager Doug with the accompaniment of a fabulous host (sorry I didn't get her name) literally created a spot for us that was what... More

Really enjoyed all the attention from our waitress Victoria. Detail oriented staff asked all the right questions in order to be helpful. Decor is elegant but not too high brow. Live entertainment. Will be a micro brewery within a month or so?? Chocolate martini was yummy. Will be telling my friends.

We visited with a group of 9 people with a reservation and got seated right beside the entrance door. Constant draft every time someone came in. Our waitress never seemed very happy to serve us and we spent most of the time trying to make sure we didn't offend her so we could get our drink orders in under 15... More

Visited with friends and co workers for Christmas annual gathering. The waitress was just fantastic & for sure, i loved the ambiance. They had life music and since we were seated in the appendix at the corner we had the possibility to converse with each other not being overwhelmed with the loud music. The food was OK and the portions... More

My husband and I stopped in for a quick bite last Thursday night, but ended up staying for hours, enjoying the entertainment. The chef came to our table to discuss my food preferences (vegan), adapted a menu item for me, and prepared delicious meals for both of us. We enjoyed the music of Brad James, who took our requests and... More

I had the bruschetta, nachos and spinach dip. I also had a surfer on acid and it tasted amazing. All were too die for. The server Stu was very kind, polite, professional and quick. Even though we were doing a business meeting, and that was our first time there, we are actually excited to come back for dinner with our... More

I was at Purple Heather Pub and stayed for several hours; long enough to order 2 meals. The staff were great and music top notch, but I was very satisfied with both food portions I ate. I mentioned some specific food sensitivities and both were handled confidently. Our family has returned now a couple of times and all meals have... More

Cool that their good taps are same price or cheaper than the major brands. Interesting specials available. I managed to miss most of them. Definitely a timing thing. Dry ribs, made for dipping, but dry works well enough to remind me to not get them. Nothing wrong with them, just ribs. Wings were perfect, as they should be. A decent... More

I have now been to this pub for the past 2 years on my visits to relatives. My Brother in Law compares the Quiz night on a Wednesday. Great evening and decent food with hospitable landlord Doug. Good food selection and friendly atmosphere
