  • Had a lovely visit here. Learned some new things about garlic and will hopefully plant some myself soon! The shop was filled with interesting goodies like garlic beer and garlic vodka. Ended the trip with some yummy food from the cafe as well as some black garlic ice cream!
  • Great place to go if you love garlic! We had a lovely sandwich in the restaurant, with doorstop bread slices (just how i like it) It was very tasty and the chips.. oh my they where so good!! After we had lunch we took a lovely walk around the farm with the dogs.
  • Absolutely love coming to this place every time on the island without fail. There's a reason the garlic farm is the go to place for all things garlic. Smoked garlic bulbs are brilliant in all kinds of dishes. Favourite Jars are probably garlic jam and garlic and mint.
  • Loads of information about the Garlic Farm and it's history. Brilliant tasting room although a broken cracker would have been nicer than a stick to try the various chutneys, sauces, mayonnaise etc. The farm walk was delightful and well signposted. Food in restaurant was exceptional.
  • We came here twice over the weekend. The self guided walking tour of the farm was mildly interesting but it was nice to get out and walk in the fresh air. Wear some shoes you're happy to get dirty as it can be muddy! The restaurant/cafe gave us an excellent breakfast and coffee - we're very happy we skipped the terrible offering of our hotel inclusion. The shop had some really interesting items and we spent probably a bit too much money on items. Love garlic though, so it's worth it!
