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.

If you like garlic, you'll love it here. We had the special, salmon with pasta in garlic sauce. Food was served quickly and the staff were friendly. If you have dogs with you, you have to go round the side of the garlic farm to the terrace as they aren't allowed inside. The smell is wonderful and the food great.

Visited the restaurant for lunch twice during our stay on the Isle of Wight and absolutely loved it. We had the Meze sharing platter both times and it was delicious. It was beautifully presented and I don’t think we left a crumb! The service was speedy and friendly and I really could not find any fault with the place at... More

This time we booked ahead for the restaurant and went straight for lunch after getting the ferry across. Excellent menu and wide variety of Specials. Generous portions and super Kids' menu choices. Everyone cleared their plates which is exceptional for our children (4/8/11/12)! Very friendly service, real pleasure to go there. Shop is always well stocked and we travelled back... More

A great free 'attraction' with the bonus of a very nice restaurant too. We visited on a wet day so did not sample the farm walks or tours. The tasting room is great, you're able to taste a wide range of sauces, chutneys and roasted garlic as well as participating in 'workshops' such as garlic bread making (not very difficult... More

We were not disappointed with the garlic farm, it's a great place to visit, there are also some nice walks, loved the flower meadow, loved the shop and the tasting room. BUT found the restaurant over priced for what you got.
