Sat down to dinner at the chef's counter for the 5 course degustation after a nice day visiting vineyards and enjoying the country setting. I was blown away by the textures and flavours presented, the service from the chef's who plated each course in front of us and explained in detail how each course was made, and the relaxing ambience....

Had dinner here at a function. Staff very friendly and setting is stunning, however, the food was a major disappointment. The entree (pork belly and lentils) arrived cold. Those of us who had the rack of lamb for the main were served something grossly undercooked and inedible unless you like your meat raw. Several of us who sent the lamb... More

Great food, great fun and great wines .... it's always the simple things done well that delight and the Blue Wren Restaurant delivered an exceptional experience. A true long lunch with each dish of the 5 course degustation a pleasure to the senses, and full of surprises. Each dish can stand on it's own, but together they combine for an... More

We decide to start our Mudgee weekend with a visit to Blue Wren on Friday night for their 5 course degustation ‘adventure’. To say it was FANTASTIC is probably an understatement, from the first course the whole meal was just amazing. We were fortunate enough to be seated at the Chef’s table where we had the pleasure of watching Steve... More

We had not been to the Blue Wren in a very long time and we won't be waiting that long to go back. The food and service was sensational. It was one of the best dining experiences we have had in Mudgee and hands down the best food I have tasted in Mudgee. We sat at the chefs table and... More

Just had the 5 course degustation and wine pairing and it was absolutely the highlight of the trip. This was possibly the best degustation menu I have had in Australia, both unpretentious and original and full of surprises. It would be difficult to pick a favourite from the five courses, but the first course celeriac soup and third course duck... More

Having sampled and bought Blue Wren Wines, we decided to try the food. Degustation menus may be too fussy and try to provide way too many flavours. This was not the case here - great combinations sized just right and matched with some wonderfully tasty wines. One of the spots to try in Mudgee.

A group of friends made a long weekend in Mudgee the weekend before last and the absolute highlight of the trip was our visit to Blue Wren Wines for a tasting and then lunch at the restaurant. It's a small winery but we really liked the 4 wines they had on tasting. Even better though was the 5 course degustation... More
