The Choate Bridge Pub is a fun family place, that also has a sports bar atmosphere! The food is New England pub style food, such as fried clams, roast beef, hamburgers, fish and chips. For dessert they have grapenut pudding! Very informal atmosphere!

The Pub is a small, all cash friendly spot. You can have great appetizers, huge sandwiches, the best fried clams, or huge prime rib for $21.99. It melts in your mouth! The servers, particularly Nicole and Mo are awesome!!! So friendly and remember your favorite drink order. They make the dining experience so much more enjoyable! My only wish is... More

We stopped into this pub after visiting the 1634 Meadery. This is a small local pub. The food & drinks are very good. The wait staff very pleasant. The big warning---NO CREDIT CARDS! There is an ATM in the pub--but if you've left your ATM at home it could be a problem. We would highly recommend this restaurant for a... More
