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 were traveling through Williamstown at dinner time and searched Trip Advisor for advice. The Purple Pub had high recommendations and we agree. We each had a burger and they were some of the best we have had in recent years. Our waiter was friendly...More

Good place to grab a light bite and watch the game. Good atmosphere to catch up with up a friend, menu was a bit short but the fish tacos were decent.

Great place to stop for a quick bite. Onion rings were terrific, and beer was cold. There is outside seating in good weather.

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.
