The Garlic Farm Restaurant
The Garlic Farm restaurant was built in 2009 using Macro Carpa pine that was planted around the farm by Colin and his father twenty years ago. The natural wood and the log fire create a wonderfully cosy atmosphere whilst the open patio to the rear with views across the valley provide an idyllic dining experience during Summer months.
Our team of exceptional chefs create gourmet dishes often but not always with a good hint of garlic. Wherever possible ingredients are sourced locally. Often we are proud to be able to serve our own Garlic Farm reared highland beef in the restaurant. The cattle can be seen enjoying the open pastures around the farm.
It is also a great spot for nature watching and it is not uncommon to see a family of red squirrels darting back and forth collecting nuts and of course the chickens, peacocks, guinea fowl, doves and Eric the dog usually like to make an appearance too.
