Field cafe was good value for money. We had hot dog and chips for £10.00 which is not expensive as the chips were home made, the sausages were large and made locally and the hot dog bun looked home ma... read more »
My and I visited Jimmys Farm a few weeks ago. We were not too impressed, a lot of the attractions, i.e. Field Kitchen and a couple of the shops were closed. We ordered some food and waited and waited ... read more »
Great place for the children, but there are green houses and it would be good to see what goes on in there. Fishing takes place with a kind elderly man and our children loved it, but it would be bette... read more »
Been a couple of times now, and it is perfect for small children. I have a four and one year old. As much as they like the animals, for them, it is all about the play areas. Of particular note is the jumping pillow, the top playground (which includes a zip wire) and the sandpit. My son caught his first fish at the pond which he was delighted with (until he had to hold it). The Farm Shop is slightly high in price, but not alarmingly so. My one gripe is that there are only two toilets for the whole farm park and shop users. As a result, they're pretty grotty and there is always a queue.
Why on earth we ended up here we're not sure but we were with family/friends who were heading there The rough story for those not in the Uk and perhaps reading this feed from other locations - Jimmy is a friend of Jamie Oliver (the Uk TV chef) - the guy Jimmy started rearing pigs himself, on the basis that he wanted pure organic fed etc etc, and the story escalated from there ......... having Jamie Oliver as a friend helped and here he is, well here is where his starting farm is at ......... thats now an open farm for more city/suburb dwellers to come and look at what is happening. In a sense the whole place is a sales pitch selling local produce and produce from further a field Its really geared towards kids - and in our group were kids - and they loved the place There is a store / cafe / restaurant that you can sit inside or out on the few tables. There are a few wines on the list though the main thing is the aspall cider. The lunch we had tasted fine and we had no complaints on the quality or service. A good place and great, i guess, if you visiting the area with family as the kids will enjoy and you'll be able to eat something decent and have a drink whilst everyone is busy Good luck to Jimmy
Festival is brilliant, we go every year. We also go to theatre in the forest and usually have a meal before. The food is very good quality. Can be pricey
Great place. Good food (outside and inside) and good shop (it's only a small adnams range by the way).... The kids play area is always a hit, den building is so much fun for all ages, tons of animals to pet and feed. There's been a recent renovation of the paths around the site, really improved things. Defo worth the entrance price, and even the yearly pass.
Ribs and Blues night - Very small portions, Music was good. We came to this event on Friday and was extremely disappointed with the food. We were given 3 ribs each which were very small a cup of fries and a small portion of slaw-which I had to ask for. I also ordered a garden salad which was just composed of lettuce. Overall one of the meanest meals I have ever had
