They... More

Recently visited Duncan's pub. We travelled to Amherst and I had checked out our options using Trip Advisor! Went with the ratings and we were not disappointed. The (small) place was packed but the server found us a table. The menu had lots of options. I chose a seafood linguine and it was excellent. Great quality ingredients and a very... More
