“An enjoyable afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2013

My three year old daughter loved this little farm. The usual farmyard suspects, plus a (muddy) play area, what more could a pre schooler ask for! We also ate in the cafe and found the food tasty and the service speedy and friendly. Well worth a visit.

Small and slightly scruffy, but then its a inner city farm. Staff are always excellent, food in the little cafe is well prepared, excellent quality and good value.

“farm fab for kids!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2012

farm okay for a quick morning/afternoon out. wouldnt recommend the cafe though, very expensive and you cant eat your own food, you have to sit in the picnic area which is okay in the summer but when you are buying hot drinks and sandwiches for adults as children have packed lunch they expect you to leave the kids in the picnic area while you eat in the cafe! staff in cafe rude! sticky tablecloths, ok we know its a farm but cleanliness must be 100%..
