My friend and I were going to be in town for a night and I wanted to make sure we had a good place to go to for dinner. We had a little table by the wood stove and it was absolutely perfect. Kim, our waitress, was wonderful. We ordered the BBQ jumbo wings, warm spinach salads, Santa Fe chicken... More

We have gone here for years since my son went to a nearby college. I love the grass fed local burger. They have many nice locally sourced items on the menu. Their root beer is made for them and has a good strong flavor. It's small and a bit noisy but that is part of the pub like atomosphere. Be... More

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. Desserts can be quite tasty too so save room.

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 food is excellent and service is fantastic. The owner is always there checking in with...

We stopped by for dinner on a summer Friday evening to be pleasantly treated by the owner and his terrific staff. It was busy with a 20 minute wait. Everyone dining chose the back porch and we did as well. Our server has the energy of the Energizer Bunny and very personable! We ordered dinner, myself the corn beef and... More

The patio was very pleasant, quiet and with good surroundings. The meals were delicious, good wine and beer selection, service was excellent and the price was right. What more could one want?

This is a really good neighborhood pub. In addition to the regular menu featuring comfort food you can alway expect imaginative nightly specials. Mexican night on Thursday draws a big crowd. Pasta night is also popular. The beverage choices are numerous. JD is a great host who makes certain everyone is happy and well fed.

We enjoyed their Mexican menu (a Thursday extra) with friends. The pub was busy as usual, mostly with friendly locals--always a good sign. Service was fast and friendly. The food was delicious and plentiful plus the bar served a very tasty Margarita. Normally we would have been seated on the patio but the weather didn't permit it this time. We... 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
