Went for breakfast here. Ordered the full breakfast and the bubble & squeak brunch . Both were delicious..a little pricey but good quality. Education room was fascinating...especially about the origins of garlic on the island. The tractor tour was very good well worth paying, the chap who did the commentary was amusing and informative. Yes the products are steep, but... More

The Garlic Farm is well worth a visit especially for the produce on sale. We also visited the cafe and can fully recommend the cheesy garlic bread. The staff were all extremely friendly and welcoming.

We were visiting family on the Island and they took us for a trip to the Garlic farm and we really enjoyed our visit. We had a nice stroll around the farm which was a nice way to have a chat and catch up on life's stories which you don't get the chance to do so much in theme parks... More

This is a very popular IOW tourist venue, and I have visited quite a few times in the past. On this visit I needed to be in my wheelchair, and was disappointed with the access. We parked in the carpark, which was on a slope, and there were an awful lot of chippings to manoeuvre before you could be pushed... More

Didn't realise how many type of garlic they were until we went here! Amazing products. We went during Easter so they had activities for kids. Definitely worth a visit.

I'm a big garlic lover, but this would even be a great trip if you're not too fussed for it. We spent a while walking around, went on the tractor ride and enjoyed tasting all the products. Then we ate in the cafe which was AMAZING. Be prepared - you'll end up buying a lot of produce in the shop.

Even in March the shop and cafe were busy which proves how popular the garlic farm is. I doubt if anyone leaves without buying something. It deserves the plaudits it gets and is well worth a visit

Loads to do for all ages. My children aged 2 and 4 loved the bouncy castle, face painting and tractor tour. Lots more that they could have done but we ran out of time. Lots to try, amazing restaurant, friendly staff. All of the meals including the kids were freshly made including the fish fingers and tomato (and garlic) ketchup.
