COVID-19 Update

September 2021

Yes, we are open! Trading hours: Sunday to Friday 10am to late, Saturday 9am to late.

Our capacity is currently 10 people inside and 20 outside. This is not going to significantly change until late October / early November. This is based on the Victorian Governments "Roadmap out of Lockdown" which is intrinsically linked to vaccination rates. We encourage all our staff and customers to get vaccinated so that we can reopen and operate in a safe, fun, and friendly environment.

Bookings are essential for lunch and dinner. Call 03 5755 1277. Currently we are doing Lunch Wednesday to Sunday and Dinner 7 days a week.

As we navigate through these restrictions including different LGAs being in lockdown and the viability of being open, there may be changes to our trading hours and mealtimes. Please check social media or call to confirm the current situation.

Due to these restrictions, there will be no Trivia (until further notice). TAB and gaming facilities are open.

Please be patient with us while navigating these changes to our business.

Restrictions include:

  • Seated service only with a maximum of 10 people inside and 20
  • Masks to be worn inside unless you are seated and eating or drinking
  • A density quotient of 1 person per 4 square metres applies
  • Checking in using the QR Code

We are required to check the ID (to confirm normal place of residence) of all patrons, to ensure you are not from an LGA in lockdown. If you are from a restricted LGA we are unable to allow you into our venue. This includes if you have a permitted reason to be in Regional Victoria, in this instance we can offer you takeaway options.



Welcome to the Star Hotel, we are located in central Bright and offer a great place to enjoy a drink with friends, a good hearty pub meal with plenty of entertainment provided by Fox Sports on all TV's and full TAB facilities and great background music provided by Nightlife.

We offer family friendly dining, two outdoor dining spaces and can easily cater for large groups. Our pub menu is full of the classics mixed with a few specialities.

A large newly constructed deck area with access from the Sports Bar and Star Room. The deck can seat approximately 40 people with lots of standing room. With a view of Star Road and Great Alpine Road intersection, which is always showcasing plenty of entertainment particularly during Hot Rods Weekend. The deck is sun drenched and best enjoyed in the late afternoon.

The tall bi-fold doors leading into the Star Room provide beautiful natural light. The Star Room has also recently had a much-needed makeover.

The once famous stage of the old Star Room has been converted into a Kid’s Area – including interactive wall mounted kids play activities which are fun and educational best for the young ones and a TV for the older kids.

We have a terrace area which overlooks the main street of Bright where you can sit and watch the world go by while enjoying the sun and a drink.

We have a comfortable, newly refurbished lounge where you can sit and enjoy a drink with friends, with a beautiful view up Anderson St towards Ireland St.

In Winter, we have two fireplaces for you to warm up from the frosty day outside.
