A really lovely place to visit- beautiful setting with free walking around the farm if you'd like it. Free tasting of all the products. A well priced cafe (yummy garlic bread £3.50!) and cakes etc. You can rent a cottage there - you can take a tractor tour of the farm ( we went iend of August 2016) so no... More

We came here primarily because we were hoping to see a red squirrel whilst on the island and were told there was a chance to see one here. Got a table by the window and managed to see one so we were happy. Added bonus was seeing the wonderful peacocks outside. I had a risotto and other half had the... More

My husband and myself had breakfast at the Garlic Farm cafe a couple of days ago. I can honestly say it is one of the tastiest breakfasts we have ever had. It was bacon on garlic ciabatta (dripping in lovely garlic butter) served with pan fried mushrooms & roasted cherry tomatoes. Very good value for money at £6.95. To add... More

We've been to the Garlic Farm a few times, this was our first visit to the restaurant. We hadn't booked and arrived at about 12 noon, we only just got a table in the outdoor area (still under cover). I would recommend booking, there was a queue when we left. There is a reasonable menu with quite an extensive specials... More

We went to the garlic farm after a friend said it was worth a visit-they were right! Loved the Tasting room but watch out for the hot ones!!! The ride round the farm was interesting and very entertaining.We also had lunch there, the pulled lamb was lovely.It was a great and reasonable day out.

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.
