We waited longer to be acknowledged and seated than we did between ordering and receiving our food. The drinks turned up after the food too, and when clearing the table food was spilt over us. The food itself is very good, well-priced and there's a good range to choose from. It's let down by service from staff that can't cope... More

Popped in after the garlic farm and was amazed at the quality of the food. Sunday Roast was perfect and my son left a clean plate. Very impressed and will go again.

Loved the Garlic farm, never realised there was so many varieties of garlic.

I had a meeting with my daughter. A very generous portion! We also shared a black garlic sure day which was pleasantly surprising. Mum had a massive ploughman's and other daughter had pesto garlic bread - also huge. Great value and delicious!

Delicious food served at this venue all with a base of garlic - if you like the stuff then you will love it. Staff are very helpful if you're a first timer to advise what you may prefer on the menu. Gets very busy with locals and tourists alike so definitely worth booking in advance if you're going at a... More

We just stopped for a coffee and cake whilst we were shopping for garlics, but judging from the other customers, the food must be good and they were not all tourists, which is always a good sign. Good coffee, nice cake and friendly service, just as it should be.

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 also travel the world to select the best possible garlic varieties to offer our customers. 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. 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.
