The Garlic Farm is all about garlic...We've been growing garlic on the Isle of Wight for over 30 years now and are the UK's largest specialist garlic grower. We are proud of our exceptional quality garlic which is renowned for its flavour, keeping quality and beauty. You only have to try our latest crop to see what we mean. We sell our garlic through our farm shop, farmers' markets, our website and through specialist food retailers across the UK including farm shops and delicatessens. Our garlic is not available in supermarkets. We welcome visitors to our farm shop and cafe on the Isle of Wight. Both have been constructed from Macrocarpa pine grown on the farm. All our garlic and farm-made products are also available on our website.

I was told that they had stopped serving lunch by one member of staff and about 15 mins later, one of my friends asked another member of staff and we were immediately shown a table. Food was expensive and was ok but nothing special. All 4 of us couldn't taste the garlic in the ice cream...I had to check the... More

I have lived on the island for 13 years and this was my first visit! It was so lovely, the taster room allowed us to try the products before we headed to the shop to wish we could get it all! I can highly recommend the garlic mayonnaise, garlic bbq sauce and the smoked garlic is amazing! We went to... More

The service was again first class , but above all , the menu offered many unusual dishes , and these were particularly appropriate to lunch time eating . Naturally , garlic is featured strongly , and a lot of... More

Every time we choose a combination of regular meals and daily specials, the food is fresh, tasty and hot with a good choice for children too.

A lovely place to walk around, either exploring the farm or sampling their delicious products. But the highlight is the restaurant. All garlic themed, imaginative and wonderfully made. A place which clearly cares and has made itself unique.

For all things garlic there is no other place! I tried all of the taster pots with crackers and I was hooked on the different blends of garlic! I never knew there was so many types of garlic and the chutneys and sauces they have made with garlic were very flavourful! They even had garlic beer and garlic popcorn!! Came... More

Not that easy to find and down a narrow road, but worth the effort. Foods made out of all things garlicky (if that's a word), even garlic beer on sale! Plenty of the fresh stuff to buy as well. You can take a tractor ride around the farm and have a snack in the cafe if you like. The cafe... More
