Description: 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.

Visited today and loved it. Fun to taste all the different options then on to the excellent shop with many tempting goodies. We waited a while for a table but it was well worth it. We had the vegetarian mezze platter with lots of garlicky items and other high quality foods. It was amazing. The service was super, the young... More

The smell of garlic hit us as soon as we got out of the car. The fact you can try all sauces, jams, oils etc before you buy is an excellent idea though we did buy a lot too. Well worth a visit if you go to the island.

The food was really good and amazingly plentiful. It was a rainy (pouring down!) day when we visited so we couldn't visit the test of the farm but we went to the tasting bit where we tried loads of great stuff. We had a 3 mezze plates between 5 of us but couldn't eat nearly all of it but, as... More

We visited the Garlic Farm with our two children (8 and 3). The grounds are lovely with a few things to do for the kids - you can see the varieties of garlic growing, go for a pleasant walk, play on the a swing, see some animals. There is a tasting area where there are generous samples of all things... More

This was our 2nd visit to the Isle of Wight and the Garlic farm lunch was memorable from our last visit so we went again this time. It did not disappoint. The food was lovely, the service was great. Disappointed we didn't have enough time to revisit and try their cake o'clock, that looked great!

This is a lovely place to visit and eat. My children love the space around the seating and animals. They saw chickens, petted guinea pigs, held falcons and saw red squirrels. My adult friends love the novelty garlic ice cream and the shop. Service and food is good and well priced. Parking plentiful. Walk available before or after meal.

Obviously, the appeal of the place is unique. And the "try it" buffet area, which gives you a taster of all the chutneys etc. that they sell is a great idea. We went to sit for a coffee and maybe lunch, but it was way too expensive, so we didn't stay, which is a great shame.
