Loved the big barn for sunday lunch and the yorkshires were amazing! Think they could have discounted the farm trail though for restaurant goers but it wasn't that expensive and helped to walk off the big lunch!! Would def recommend.

It was a very busy day at the farm. We paid to look around the animals which 3 year old grand-daughter enjoyed greatly. To be fair I also enjoyed the experience as the animals were all friendly and were well looked after. A decision was made to eat lunch which once again was nice and not too expensive I suppose...

Lots of animals to see, feed and pet. Plenty of room to run around and things to play on. Lots of young family's in the restaurant and well catered for. We all enjoyed the amazing sausages and mash and gorgeous puddings.

We note that you've taken nearly a year to write this review since your visit and it is rather out of context. We wouldn't dream of serving cold food to you and the Christmas Party Night in question was opened up specifically for us to accommodate your group. More

It's been five years since I visited jimmys farm and was hoping for lots more to see. What a disappointment. Everything seemed pretty much the same apart from the small childrens play area. The place it great for walks but if you have a pushchair it's more of a workout than a leisurely walk. The shingled paths just made it... More

We visited Sunday 31st aug (2 grandparents, mum, dad and a 2 year old) admission price not too bad. First impression was not good. The animal pens could have done with of a little bit of care and a lick of paint. The kiddie play area again needed some investment. The 'bouncy area' was dusty and the toys needed dumping.... More

Many thanks for your review. We don't tend to paint our animal enclosures as we're a working farm, so we use natural wooden fencing which is better for the environment and the health of the animals. We have a full time outdoor team who look after the animals and their areas and we do firmly believe that animals are happiest... More

We visited last year and loved it, would have given it a 5. However this year was disappointed. There was no nets for pond dipping, and the playground was a bit tired. Few items broken. There was more farm animals though which my kids liked. We only stayed for 3 hrs, and we did it all, even build a den... More

Thanks for coming to see us, we'd love to hear which bits you thought were broken, please can you email tilly@jimmysfarm.com with details as we always keep on top of these things. Our food and produce is all fairly priced as everything is made locally by hand. All the meat is free range, which unfortunately is a more expensive way... More

We had visited Jimmy's farm on the way back from our four day break in Kessingland beach, and I was pleasantly surprised. For starters it is really cheap to go in and walk round the farm land and fun areas. The feed for the animals is reasonable too. I went with some of our family and we had kids ranging... More

My second visit now and loved it with the whole family. You can go and eat at the cafe or outdoor cafe and visit the farm shop and you don't have to pay is only when you want to go into the farm/petting area that you pay and prices are fair. We went in and is clean and the animals... More
