Lunch, Restaurant not that far!

Villarett Gardens is a lovely drive from Launceston taking about 45 minutes.
The food is well worth the drive.  The Restaurant is licensed and can cater for 80 people.
Accommodation is available too.
The garden is on 4 hectares and hilly.


Brandy Snap with Raspberries was the sweet I chose. Delicious.


Can't recall what this sweet was called but do know 'Toffee' something - look like Pineapple Tart - maybe.


The Restaurant itself which rests on top of the hill.


 The view of a small area of the garden as one walks past.

    1. Nothing fancy regarding the building, inside is plain and it was once a gallery with the restaurant being in another building near the house.

  13. The desserts look so delicious! The gardens are very lovely too, I wouldn't mind that in my garden, but I'd need a gardener to care for it.
    The design on the end wall of the restaurant resembles one of my son's tattoos.

      Too hilly there for me, and the man that owns the place does an excellent job mowing the lawns and keeping the garden lovely
