As Grandparents of 3 year old & 1 year old we debated visiting Jimmys Farm or Hall farm but decided to visit Hall farm as we have been before & it is slightly nearer. This time it was even better. The Farm Trail is FREE, completely unspoilt & our two loved the old tractors (real) which they could 'drive', a... More

Went here with a friend for a lunch - We hadn't booked, not realising it would be so busy - but we were given a lovely table - all the tables are well spaced out so you are not listening to other peoples conversations..... Everything was nice and clean, the waiters and waitresses all polite and to top it all... More

We'd booked a table so were seated straight away on arrival by the window, where you can currently look out on an amazing view of young little lambs! I don't think my partner got much conversation from me as I was too busy watching little black and white lambs jump around instead. Our drinks order was taken quickly and there... More

Been wanting to eat here for a while, and a trip to Ipswich was the excuse to come here. We were lucky we got a table, as I would advise to book ! As quite a few disappointed people after us could get a table. Lovely menu, and very helpful staff. Nothing seemed to be to much trouble. Great idea... More

I would advise booking, as even a weekday lunch could be booked up. It is a good afternoon trip as, in addition to the restaurant there is an excellent farm shop and, as the... More

Excellent lunch every thing was superb. The food was good quality, cooked very well. The wine selection is good, and not to expensive. The starters came quite quick, and there was a good break for the mains to arrive. No room for dessert. Staff was very good also. The view is very nice, over looking the fields. Well done to...
