Merryman’s Pub is located in the heart of downtown Pitman, NJ. This spot was once home to the Pitman National Bank, more than 100 years ago! Merryman’s owners, Bill Merryman and Vito Mannino, are thrilled to bring this beautiful building back to life for the community. Vito is also the owner of Mannino’s Cucina Italiana and Pizzeria Mannino’s, two well established (and loved) restaurants just steps away from the pub.

Selection of beer & mixed drinks was excellent. Great flavor with their wing sauce. Love the old bank vibe.

Merrymans is a nice gem located in central Pitman. Food is very good. Unfortunately I took away a star for the drinks. Both our drinks were awful. I think they had an overabundance of lemons because our drinks were so sour. I had a long Island iced tea which was all lemons. I added some of my husband's cola and it helped. I was surprised bc when we ate here in the fall we all had the most delicious drinks. I actually couldn't wait to come back for the drinks alone. They need to address this asap.

Very cool ambiance and look to this cozy place! Large ceilings and windows give it a gothic feel. The food was very high quality for “bar food”. The soups I tried were amazingly flavorful and, HOT, which is, unfortunately, a lost art with most of your run-of-the-mill chain restaurants which Merryman’s Pub certainly is not.

Whether you’re taking someone on a first date, or your family for a nice meal, Merryman’s Pub will leave you full and wanting to return very soon!

Well, we made a reservation on a busy Saturday night and we're taken almost immediately our table was ready available when we got there, however that's where the trouble started the restaurant was grossly understaffed and the kitchen was slow and inconsistent all of our appetizers and dinners came out at different times and we probably would have had two more rounds of drinks if our service was adequate. Although Pittman is gentrified and is a fantastic place to hang out we will not be returning to this restaurant

I had ordered chicken nachos, pepperoni flatbread, wings. I go out to eat 3 time a week at least. Wings are average pizza shop size, pepperoni flatbread was ok, and the nachos did not have a lot of chicken on them and was a small portion.

Took forever to get the last entree out, close to 10 minutes after the other food was served. Very tightly packed atmosphere and seating was not following COVID rules. Probably won’t return. We had to sit at the Bar tables with tables set up 4’ behind us.

Staff was awesome! From the hostess to our server. I thought the food was a bit over priced. We had chicken nachos and a flat bread. The nachos were terrible. There was a huge glob of "yellow" on half the nachos and barely anything on the other side. Definitely disappointed with that. The Flatbread was very good but not $21 good.

Not sure if we'll be back. The atmosphere was awesome, service was great...food? Not so much

Unfortunately for our first time it was a really bad experience. We had to send our burgers back (3 times!) First, not asked how we wanted our burgers (temp) but then received overly cooked burgers. Second time the cheese was waxy and not melted and just room temp. Third time was raw! Fries cold. Waiter was nice but no manager came by which was unusual. My friends just ate some fries while I ate my meal which was just ok. We wouldn't come back. Too bad - it's a great atmosphere and location!

Food was plentiful and good. Drinks were good but a little pricey. Atmosphere was very nice. And old bank building saved from the wrecking ball. Service was excellent. We’ll definitely return.

Menu offers plenty of options and are all delicious. Cocktails have a craft feel to them. If you go during winter season, bring a sweater. Seems to always be chilly/drafty.

Even with a reservation the hostess wasn’t sure when we’d be seated because the restaurant was entirely mobbed. Not a chance that they were following COVID guidelines. After 15 minutes waiting outside in 30 degree weather for our reservation, we left and went to a more responsible establishment down the street.

Loved this awesome gastropub in the. middle of Pitman - such an amazing ambiance inside a renovated bank. We ordered the cheesesteak egg rolls (to die for), the buffalo chicken flatbread which I loved because the flatbread was a bit thicker than your usual flatbread, and I personally got the Merryman burger with mushrooms, cartelized onions, Vermont cheddar and I added a fried egg. It was to die for. The burger was juicy and amazing and I ordered mine with their killer onion rings. Looking forward to returning!!!

Food was wonderful. The Bavarian pretzel is a must have. White sangria was delicious. Overall, a great experience. We've been before and will go again.
Dessert was the only lackluster part.
