The food was very good and moderately priced. We are outdoors in a beautiful setting. Very Vermont-like things on the menue

Imagine our disappointment when we arrived expecting pub food and instead were presented with a brand new menu that eliminated all their old favorites! The new menu is far more limited and the emphasis is on farm to table, so not that it's a bad...More

This is a sweet little place and the drinks, staff and food were good, nice patio, very average. I'd give it 3.5 if I had the option but can't give it a 4. My warm spinach salad was delicious but was looking forward to blue...More

Guinness on tap. Prompt service. Pub food. Located just outside Putney. Good destination for an informal dinner.

Always a nice meal in a comfortable setting. Good service as well plus friendly locals. Their menu is/will be changing a bit as they bring a new chef on-board. There's a full bar. The food is always tasty and plentiful so you can't go wrong....More

JDs has the best of both worlds. If you want a quiet setting with nice ambiance the inside has a cozy Diningroom setup. For a night out with friends where you can get a little rowdy, the back deck is perfect in the summer! The...More

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
