Ate here and found the food very poor and expensive for what you get. Added to that staff who are more than indifferent or willing to help, and you have a very poor experience indeed

We try to get to visit Melbourne at least once a year and never miss a visit to Customs House Hotel at Williamstown. We always make a day of it and catch the ferry across then have lunch. We have never been disappointed. They do offer a 2 course lunch special for $20 which is great value but we usually... More

The Customs House on Nelson Place Williamstown is more than your average pub, serving a range of tasty meals. We previously lived in Williamstown and frequented Customs House many times. In November we visited friends and neighbours and had a large group join us for dinner. We were not disappointed and all of our friends were happy with their meals.... More

Good place to catch up with people as it has many different corners where you can hang out with friends. Good selection of drinks. Meals are your average pub meal

We decided to stop in Williamstown for a meal after driving around the bay. We did not really have any idea of where was good to eat but decided on this pub as it was very close to where we parked the car. The food came out quickly and was of high standards. The only thing I thought was a... More

Abit of a hit and miss but overall had good hits... Big pub styled meals of an international variety. Try the steak and mushroom sauce, pastas and rissotos
