Visited jimmy's Christmas fair with two 1 year olds to see Santa, queued for 2 hours on a very cold day, the elfs were very good as was santa! Our 1 year olds were very patient but 2 hours in an outside queue is too much, we left drinks in the car and there was nowhere to buy a child's... More

We went to the Christmas fayre on Saturday 6th December. The vehicular access to the farm was not very well signposted and was down a narrow lane which was challenging for 2 way traffic. Once on site the majority of the stalls where fast food, plenty of variety if you wanted to buy food or drink, but not much choice... More

Attended the Sunday Xmas Fair day at the farm. There was certainly no Xmas theme to this event. In fact it was a food and craft market day which was set out on the normal car park. A result was you had to park in a muddy field. Luckily a number of stalls took card payments as the farm had... More

We took the kids here for probably the 4th time. They loved seeing all the animals, holding the baby chicks and generally being free to take in nature. Aside from the norm, Jimmy has fun days and forest theatre nights to, both of which I've been too, and both of which I've enjoyed. And to top it off, as much... More

I found jimmys farm to be a relaxing day out with the kids...whether mingling with the animals or following the nature trail...there is also a play area for the kids to burn some energy while you relax and darwins garden is a tranquil place for a bit of peace....there is also a butterfly house (which can get very warm)as well...

we all had a brilliant day out at Jimmy's Farm....make sure you allow yourself a whole day. The children absolutely loved building their own Den in the forest...it's a MUST!! We also fed the animals, had sheep chase us while we fed the goats...it was a lovely day. We took a big picnic with us, but there is a restaurant... More

Called into Jimmys Farm for coffee and light snack about 1130 a.m. We had not booked lunch but were asked to sit in the entrance to have coffee and toasted teacake. We had to ask for a table to put the cups and plates on. Virtually all the tables in the restaurant were free - I appreciate they were booked... More

We're so sorry to hear you were not happy. When people have reserved tables we can't give them to other people we're afraid, so that may mean if you'd still like to eat you can enjoy sitting in our entry foyer. The area does have a coffee table and console table to use. Best thing to do is book in... More

We visited with our group of NCT friends, now we have toddlers it's good to have somewhere they can let off steam. We arrived at 12 and went straight to the restaurant for lunch, I enquired about the soup of the day and there seemed some confusion as to what it was but the waitress thought it was spicy pumpkin...

The food was delicious the entertainment disappointing. The 'headline' comedy act, seemed rather intoxicated and had little material, just waffling in and out of focus. We couldn't wait to go! The service seemed inexperienced but helpful and the restaurant manager, either under a lot of pressure on not enjoying her job. Overall a night we were looking forward to and... More

We had a lovely day on Sunday 😄 We had breakfast first and that's a must it was amazing. We loved looking at all the animals and my son had so much fun catching a fish. Such a lovely day out can't wait to visit again.
