We came here due to recommendations and it didn't disappoint. Purchased lots of garlic things and saw the peacocks and red squirrel! We had a tea and shared a brownie in the Café, but the service seemed a little bit misareble and we got the feeling they wanted to close up (we visited at 4pm - closure is 5pm). Would... More

Great little place. Freshly made garlic bread is the best ever. Plenty of garlicky products to purchase. Great way to spend a couple of hours.

The owners really make this place work. Coupled with amazing facts about garlic growing both locally and worldwide, there is a tasting room which enables you to taste all the products before buying. It's compelling stuff, because we went onto spend more than we'd planned on oils, marinades and pickles! Everything we've tried so far is of excellent quality and... More

We saw the signs and had a bit of time, so went on a whim, we were so pleased we did! It is absolutely wonderful - the staff were very friendly and helpful, we bought so much garlic stuff (we got very excited as we love the stuff -haha!). The property and surroundings are just stunning and we were even... More

Had a Mezze platter to share and it was huge. Great food variety and served with speed. Beware that you will need to book. We waited roughly 20 minuted for a table which wasn't a problem as we looked in the farm shop and the visitor' s center.

My wife and I were frequent visitors to the garlic farm to purchase their products Today we went with the intention of buying a bottle of olive oil infused with garlic but were shocked to discover the price has increased from £4-50 to £5-50 since December so needless to say .we will not be purchasing any more products From the...

Hello Michael from Newport. It's upsetting for us to hear your feedback. Price rises are a reality for any business I'm afraid although we totally understand your disappointment. Price increases of ingredients and glassware and inflation pressure on everyone play a part in retail prices rises. We'd love to hammer this out over a pint of Garlic Beer if you... More

Large selection of garlic based gifts including garlic beer!! They used to give Taste samples of their products which I think was a good idea and it's a shame they don't do that now but still a really good place to visit.

Hello and thanks for your review & feedback. We still offer free tastings of all our products so not sure if you missed our taste experience centre or the tasters at the back of the shop? Hope you enjoyed the garlic beer! Best wishes, The Garlic Farm Team More

Thanks for your feedback. Glad you enjoyed the open fire and the shop. We love vegetables too so sorry you felt there weren't enough- perhaps you can contact us directly and let us know which dish you ordered and we'll make sure there are enough next time. Best wishes, The Garlic Farm Team More
