This was my second trip in a week in my four day visit to the IOW. Absolutely loved both visits. The vegan food is so good. Great shop. We met Harrison the Cockerel - legend! Recommended.

The food here is very expensive for what you get. Service rather slow. Very attractive place though.

We always visit the Garlic Farm which is a fantastic destination. However this time we were disappointed with the lunch menu which was very limited and not shown online. I appreciate Covid restrictions but the food we had was expensive and not that enjoyable . We will try again next visit but probably just for coffee and cake rather than a meal. Hopefully as regulations lift the menu will improve. Staff were hard working and friendly and the walk around the farm was pleasant.

Lovely helpful staff, arrived early but no problem. Excellent food with great service. We ate here at the end of lockdown when eating outdoors was permitted so these comments relate to that time, so amusing entertainment from the chickens, sighting of a red squirrel might not be available! Loved it.

After an early start and a very long drive it was so nice to have a table booked and be looked after by really efficient staff, and in a safe way in these troubled times. The food was delicious.

Superb food and great service - will definitely return!! The risotto was beautifully cooked and my children highly recommend the black garlic brownie chocolate sundae. We had a lovely lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the walks around the farm
