What a delightful setting. We had a reservation for lunch (7 of us), greeted with a smile and shown to our tables. The menu was beautifully presented with lots of choices. Most of us girls had the crepes (lots of fillings to chose from) mine was chicken and asparagus and served with salad (half serve was 1 crepe and this... More

Stayed for 3 nights in our self contained caravans, nice location with sea views, lovely gardens to stroll around and had lovely home style sunday roast and light meals in tea room cafe. Hosts Vicky and Trevor are very welcoming, going back soon.

Booked for a large family function, with a few elderly family members. Menu well suited to the older generation, with good old fashioned homestyle cooking.

Three of us had lunch, reasonable prices, lovely food and great service, what more could we ask? The restaurant was light and pleasant and having a window seat meant we could look over Bass Strait. We'll definitely go there again.

On the Old Coast Road, opposite "Goat Island" is the Blue Wren Tea Rooms. The location is enough-and the gardens, full of waratahs and the like is simply special. The menu is homely-nothing overly fussy, but taking in the ambience of view and access, very much worth the time. On the downside, their ammenities are a bit hard and awkward... More

We had driven past a number of times and yesterday, decided to drop in for a light lunch. Well, in the middle of a grassy field with beautiful gardens around for a stroll is one of the friendliest venues we have attended. Great plowman's lunch, caramel coffee, and tea in a pot we enjoyed the quiet setting. The grounds are... More

Our family had booked a hotel in Ulverstone (The lighthouse) but had to check out as it was terrible. Well what a find The Blue Wren was, recommended by Michelle at the Beachway Motel (what a gem she was). We didn't visit the tea gardens just stayed at the holiday house which was separate from the tea rooms. Couldn't have... More

More or less midway between Ulverstone and Penguin this tea room is in an elevated location overlooking Goat Rock and other small islands. The room is bright and airy and the staff friendly and efficient. The food is good with a whole range from simple snack to a full meal, the desserts were particularly attractive. Licensed too if you fancy... More

We recently headed to Blue Wren Tea Gardens along with two other couples for Sunday lunch. A traditional Sunday Roast was the order of the day and it certainly lived up to that. Roast Beef or Roast Lamb or a combination of both could be had along with six different vegetables consisting of roast potatoes roast pumpkin, boiled carrots, peas... More
