On our way to take visiting family for oysters on Chukanut Drive and couldn't wait, so we ducked in here for a bite. What a find! BEST FOOD EVER. The clam chowder was the best I've ever had, as was the mushroom, truffle and Swiss burger. Everyone else raved about their food, also. The atmosphere was warm and cozy and... More

We came for dinner. What a treat. It was like going to the United Kingdom without the airfare. We ordered a couple of beers. They have quite a few taps and a few that they change with seasonal brews. Food was delicious. Waitstaff is friendly and informative about the menu items and beers. Can't wait to go back.

Love this place! I have yet to have a bad meal. This is a regular casual date for my boyfriend and I. The shepards pie along with the truffle mac and cheese are our favorites. They make their own ginger beer for moscow mules. Delicious. We keep going back. My favorite spot in Fairhaven!

such a nice surprise when you go down the stairs to this place. At first I wasn't so such but once we walked through the door it was great. Had a hearty meal & a good beer. Service was good and the place has nice atmosphere. Very different from most.

The Archer is the place to go for a comfortable dinner with such wonderful choices on the menu. There is enough variety for almost any palate. Portions are generous but not over-loaded and are fresh and tasty Live music adds to the atmosphere from time to time. Nice choices of liquid refreshment!

Archers is located in a basement near the main street through town. Don't let the entrance deceive you. It has a classic traditional pub look - oak bar, stone walls, tin ceiling etc. Large selection of English and local beers. Extensive cocktail menu. Food is burgers, sandwiches and entrees. We had sandwiches and the chowder, all of which was good.... More

I really love pubs, and the only reason I would give this place an average review is because of the service. We had a hard time ordering our drinks, and the group I was with, (ranging 21 to 27 years old), felt a bit out of place in the pub. The drinks were delicious and the location is comfortable and...

I saw this place when we were walking around, they had a sign outside with some good looking drinks on it. We kept on going and when we got hungry, we decided to go back to this place, it didn't look like much and going down the stairs i wasn't expecting much and then i turned the corner and there...

They have a nice Whiskey menu and cocktails with whiskey a and other spirits. Good local and overseas beers. Good atmosphere. We didn't eat - but the menu has expanded since we were here last. We plan on coming back soon for lunch or dinner. Whiskey cocktails started at about $8 with the "Archer" at $10- their version of an... More
