If you’re looking for somewhere to go for a few hours on a rainy winter day, then this is a hidden little gem, where you can get a nice lunch, and make some nice garlicy purchases in their shop.

We were out of season and I imagine in the summer could get busy. Good displays all about garlic - types, growing, smoking, recipes etc.. Loads of stuff to buy and Cafe was good too. Kids would enjoy too, but not for too long!
