Tacky and over priced! Pay to get in then pay for rides! Not many animals either. Fairly pleasant. Nice cafe and soft play.

My younger grandson had his 5th birthday party here in 2009 and everyone loved it and as you get one adult free for every child it was great value and they could stay on after the party if they wished. Since then we have visited every year and have found that it continues to improve every year. My younger grandson... More

A perfectly nice place, great for kids and pricing isn't too bad! The selection of animals is pretty good and it's a generally nice place to visit

We visited with two young boys and overall thought it made a nice morning out but for us there wasn't enough to do to make it worth the admission fee. The play structures are good and varied and fairground rides are great however as a farm I feel it could have more animals or perhaps some sessions with farmers, maybe... More

I last went to the farm 5 years ago, it seemed busy customer wise, but i was disappointed with lack of staff and staff enthusiasm. I went again last month and have to say the site has improved ten fold, all areas were open, all animals looked well. Staff look tired and don't interact with children and get involved, it... More

I took my two children there with pretty low expectations because the online pictures didn't really show much. A part of me was nervous that I'd be one of few people visiting. However the location was extremely convenient for an East Londoner. On arriving, however, I was pleasantly surprised at its popularity. The car park was busy but not too... More

After reading the reviews I didn t expect the farm to be so good. The staff was all very friendly. I went with the family including 6 grandchildren, After visiting the animals we had our picnic lunch. Plenty of tables and seats to choose from And the car park is near so not a long walk you can leave your... More

Was a lovely day out with all the children until lunch time... We went to the cafe. Slow service, cold food and the children had undercooked sausages!!! When I took the food back there was no apology!
