Felt a little underwhelmed as no tours on the day we visited. You could taste the produce before purchasing but the young lad in the shop didn't really seem interested. Looked round bought a couple of thing and left. Not sure I would go again.More

This is our second visit to the Garlic farm where you can sample all the various salsa's, garlic relishes and so much more. Staff are friendly and there is a café if you intend spending any appreciable time there.

Such an innovative menu for garlic lovers, who knew you’d want or even fancy garlic for breakfast! Fantastic place to spot red squirrels that play in the playground outside. There are seats overlooking while you eat. Great little gift shop too. Would go back again...More

Hi Joanne, yes dogs are welcome in the grounds and in the Allium Café but not in the shop and restaurant. We strongly encourage leads as we have chickens, peacocks and red squirrels roaming freely. Hope to see you soon, Hugo
