And the food is delicious! Start with a wonderful blended margarita, add some appetizers, then select a main course of tacos, nachos, or burritos and you're set. There's plenty to share if you want. You can also order from their regular menu including their fantastic...More

We went after visiting Santa's Land. Burger was good, prices fair to high. They have a bar, limited menu, but what we ordered was good. Would go there again!

Description
JD McCliment's Pub is as unique as the small town it is a part of. We strive for a relaxed, family friendly, atmosphere with a creative menu that incorporates locally grown produce. In the winter you can get a cozy table by our wood stove, and for those beautiful summer evenings enjoy our patio seating. Popular Vermont micro brews are always on tap and our nightly dinner specials are far beyond typical pub food. "Through much skill and physical effort, J.D. and family have certainly created a 'home away from home' atmosphere, where anyone from any walk of life can come, be welcomed and have a great meal and a great brew." --long-time Putney resident David Babbit
