Williamstown's 'Morning Star Hotel' is a pub that wavers between an old and new, taking the best of both worlds and serving great tasting food and beverages for affordable prices. The dining room is complete with white table cloths, long windows covered by heavy velvety curtains and classic light fittings. Table sizes vary, with plenty of options for dining parties small and large.
Salads, sirloin steaks, chicken terraine, fish and chips and pastas adorn the menu, with a few vegetarian alternatives here and there and plenty of kids options available.

Honestly, I found this place rather dull. In fact it comes across as one of those pubs that basically only the locals will visit – and the lads after a game of football (which is actually what happened the first time I was here). Really, it isn't one of those pubs that really jumped out at me. While there was a decent selection of beers, and a decent sized beer garden as well, it still didn't come anywhere near to being one of those fantastic pubs. In the end it really was just okay.
The Morning Star is a another Williamstown pub (there are so many), but where this one is different is its location. It's 2 blocks away from Nelson Place and the most historic port in Victoria, Gem Pier. Just a tiny bit further from Ferguson street. . So you have all the history and a short stole away from all the history you can walk up the street for a super meal. And the y are super. Meals here are largely home made. There parma is especially nice.
If you are lucky enough to get here, make sure you book, it does get busy in the restaurant. You will know why if you get in.
