Stopped in for breakfast and many chilli products..The food was very good and had we called later the lunch menu looked good too.. Very large selection of garlicky things which were too nice to not buy.. Only downside was it is not accessible by bus,it's the only trip out we had to do by car..Not the farms fault though..

We attended today in what was our first visit to the Garlic Farm. We visited the cafe and it was certainly not service with a smile. The cake was tasteless and there was no filter coffee available. The bill was wrong and staff wanted to argue about it in front of other customers. We all agreed that sadly we would... More

Love this place and love your garlic but was disappointed today having driven 67 miles to you to stock up on your garlic and have some lunch! Why? Because I value customer service as much as I do the food and surroundings. Today I lunched with my son, I had to call a waitress over to the table after waiting... More

This was a flying visit to a place I've always wanted to visit. Nest time I'll spend much more time and eat in the cafe. This is a very special place and the shop is amazing.

Great to see the history of the farm and learn about the products and to get to taste them. The farm shop is not cheap but the products are really good. The cafe is popular even at this time of the year. The only down side is the complete lack of integration or engagement on the part of the staff... More

Well worth a visit. Interesting place to learn about garlic. We had a sharing platter between us which was delicious! The bonus f our visit was to see the red squirrels. Such dainty little creatures.
