Greatly expanded since our last visit. There are now two farm walks. Plenty of different garlic tasters to try and plenty of information about garlic and how to grow it. So much to choose from in the shop and we always come home loaded with garlic products. Good cafe but we didn't visit this time.

Nice place, learn new things about garlic products! Tried tasting different garlic products that on offer before you buy in the shop! Dogs are welcome, but not in restaurants and shops!!

Loved this place. It's all free and linked to the garlic plant. There's loads of different products to sample and buy. The restaurant had delicious dishes and there was plenty to interest the children too. Well worth a visit.

The first time I went to the Garlic Farm about seven years ago, I was blown away by its location, the produce and the ethos of the place. My wife and I have been back every year - to try out the tasting shed (where all their products are up for perusal - free) and to purchase some seriously good,... More

When on the Isle of Wight, we always have to pop into The Garlic Farm. If you are unsure, there is a Tasting Room where you can Try before you Buy. I love Garlic so always have to have a Garlic Ice Cream. ( give it a try ) There is a Nice Cafe for Eats & Drinks, and a... More

We went there on a wet day, so didn't do the tour, but the shop is very good, and so is the tasting area. We had a coffee in the tea rooms which was very spacious. Would recommend going on a good day to get the full experience with the tour.

accidental find whilst on a bike ride. Delightful wildflower area. Great information centre and a fantastic shop - who knew you could make so much with Garlic? The fresh garlic on sale was amazing - nothing like the sad efforts we are used to from the supermarkets. Go and see - it's a great place to visit

My family and I visited the Isle of Wight and saw signs for the garlic farm so decided to pop in on our way back to the ferry. It was a lovely little visit! I can't comment on the tour as we didn't have time. However if you're a fan of garlic then this is the place for you! I... More

My husband and I made a whistle stop visit to The Garlic Farm as part of our weekend on the IOW. The grounds are beautifully maintained and there aren't any hard sells to try and get you to buy anything. We tried some testers and had a walk around the shop but left empty handed. Definitely worth a visit if... More

A great place to visit if you're a garlic enthusiast. The garlic farm self-guided tour is a good walk around the grounds where garlic is farmed. They do have a lot of garlic related products in the farm shop albeit a tad on the expensive side. The restaurant has a very decent offering. Must try the garlic beer when you're... More
