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.

Stopped in for a late afternoon lunch on a weekend visit. Lots of options for the beer and food lovers alike. Service a little on the slow side but nothing to complain about. Food was good, had the fish tacos, boneless wings and a Cobb salad. Beer was cold and atmosphere comfortable. Played some great tunes from the late 80s and early 90s which was fun to hear.

We stopped by for lunch. Salads were huge as were the sandwiches. We had one of each and couldn't finish either. Ingredients were fresh and very good. We sat outside and had great service. The bathroom situation is beyond weird. The toilets are in separate rooms but the sink and mirror are outside in the hallway where both men and women can wash their hands where everyone can see. Eewww, but I guess it provides some public pressure to do the right thing.

We stopped here for a drink and nacho appetizer before going to the Williamstown Theater. Good service & convenient location. I can't speak for the other menu items but I'd go again.

I've been here many times with my wife. We visit a local museum and then come here for something to eat and drink. The quality of the food is great and the service always excellent. Our waitress yesterday was Emily L. and she was very professional and attentive to serving us. We like the variety of items on their menu. Many sandwiches include bacon and we always ask it not be included for dietary reasons. They are always very accommodating. I compliment their kitchen staff. This is the only place we frequent when in the area for a museum visit which is three to four times a year.

The food here is surprisingly decent, especially the burgers, but the service was sorely lacking. We had to ask for the check about five different times. More troubling than the service, however, was the condition of the bathrooms; they were filthy. While this may be a college kids hangout, that doesn't mean that clean bathrooms don't matter. Clean up your act, Purple Pub.
