Garlic & Stars

Here’s a real treat for all you Foodies out there – a collaboration between one of the Island’s most famous attractions, The Garlic Farm and Michelin Chef Robert Thompson. This May the two will be working together to redefine the Isle of Wight dining experience, offering a three night package including accommodation at the 5 AA Star The Hambrough. Here’s the deal in their own words – Eds.

Michelin Chef, Robert Thompson, and The Garlic Farm are collaborating to offer an exclusive holiday package on the Isle of Wight this May.

The three-night deal will allow guests to experience the ever-popular foodie destination that is the Isle of Wight. During the break, guests will enjoy three nights in the five star luxury accommodation of The Hambrough with spectacular views of the sea, two delicious evening meals, the chance to explore The Garlic Farm and to walk through the largest Elephant garlic field this side of the Atlantic.

Situated in the heart of the countryside, The Garlic Farm is surrounded by amazing scenery and is steeped in fascinating history. Guests will be able to tour the farm, sample the farm’s produce in the on-site restaurant, follow Colin Boswell (the garlic farmer) on a taste tour of garlic from all over the world and even pick up some growing tips to take home!

In two mouth-watering evening meals, Chef Robert Thompson will create a selection of specially designed dishes that encompass just some of the fantastic local produce available on the island.

Chef Robert Thompson says: “What an opportunity to showcase one of my favourite local producers – sometimes you just feel like shouting at the top of your voice about sheer quality of these ingredients.”

Colin Boswell, owner of The Garlic Farm said: “We’re thrilled to be involved in this offer with Robert and The Hambrough – it gives visitors the chance to share our love of garlic and of course the Isle of Wight. We have a unique story to tell and we experience great pleasure in sharing this with others – especially through visits to our farm here on the Island.”

This offer is available from £606 per couple during May. Further details of the package, price and T&Cs can be found here.
