“Great day out for the kids and second childhood grown ups!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We took our grand daughters aged 6 and 7 here for a day at the end of the school holidays and had a fantastic time. Although the entry price may seem a little steep it does include all the activities within the farm, which are many. Due to the popularity of the place you need to factor in waiting times for some of the more attractive activities, but there is plenty to do to keep kids occupied in the meantime. A brilliant way to work off energy, racing from place to place and making new discoveries and trying out new skills. There are undercover areas, a theatre and a picnic barn for when the weather is a bit "iffy". Our high spot, literally, was the "squirrel scramble" and the girls, completing the tree-top walk a good five minutes before their aging grandparents, had a chance to try out the zip wire while waiting for us to make our way down from the trees! Thoroughly recommended for all ages, take a spirit of adventure with you and look at things through a child's eye.

“Poor customer recovery following accident at Fisher's Farm”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Fisher's Farm is a collection of activities for children between 3 and 11, including rides, climbing wall, bouncy pillows, slides, indoor farm, shows, ghost train experience etc. All good fun and mostly well run. My dissatisfaction follows a recent visit during which my child's foot got caught in a go kart as her shoelace wrapped itself around the pedal spindle and hooked in to a broken pedal at the same time. Aside from the upset and anxiety caused to her (her foot was trapped taut against the spindle at an awkward painful angl) and me in dealing with how to remove her foot - (involving the need to shout for help and then cut through her trainers with a knife with no staff in sight) and the grazing and bruising of her ankle the follow up response to my written complaint was very dismissive and inflammatory. I personally will not be visiting again given the potential hazard which to my knowledge is/has not been rectified. The first aider who arrive don the scene once the foot was cut free was lovely - no fault with her. Manager and owner however were not inclined to offer anything by way of recompense for the new trainers we had to purchase subsequently or the upset caused (they could so easily have offered to refund entrance fee at the very least) - stating that 'accidents will happen and shouldn't always result in blame and compensation'.....Be careful if you visit as they have now had two incidents it would appear where people's laces have got caught on the go karts. I have asked for them to ensure signage is put up reminding everyone who goes on the go karts to ensure there laces are short and not loose or long in any way. I am not hopeful that will happen so hereby remind anyone visiting to do so - just in case! They also declined to send the risk assessment for that activity....

“A decent day out for the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Ok so it's a farm. Don't expect some glamorous theme park!

The staff are very freindly and helpful. The prices maybe a little pricey when you consider what there is to do, but I think it's probably more on the fair side. Bare in mind everything bar food and drinks are included in that price.

It's basically a farm, with various playgrounds. Be they the typical ones you get in parks, or be they wooden forts or pirate ships. Slides trampoline, sandpit and bouncing pillows etc. They also have a rock climbing thing. They have a soft play area for toddlers types as well as slightly older kids.

The Big red tractor ride is extremely short and wasn't really worth it. Sit on the left side as you climb up to the trailer or you'll miss most of the few animals you get to see on this ride. IT's not even 5 minutes long, so you'll have time to do the ghost ride after or vice versa as thats not actually very long either, or scary lol. More about sending messages to children like dont eat too many sweets etc.

The animal barn next to the theatre is open for you to go and see the horses etc. You can pet them too and plenty of signs asking you to wash your hands after. We didn't do the handling of small animals thing they do here.

There is a maze area. The bush maze is pretty much a no brainer as you can see over the top and the main boarder up maze didn't take longer then 20 seconds it that! Still fun for this kids if they want to have a go themselves

We went to the magic show. It's not really a magic show per say. There's one or two tricks but it's more a comedy show aimed at ridiculing the adult participant from the crowd (which did not go down well with the guy that was chosen when we were there). The humour is quite adult orientated and the kids won't understand it but will laugh anyway no doubt. In honesty I thought it was a tad too adult the humour considering this is a farm/theme park type place aimed at young children!

The farm animal show in the theatre was decent enough. One of my children got to ride a pony on the stage and the other feed a lamb. They bring out a cow as well and try and get as many kids participating.

The pony/horse riding outside was ok. I didn't do it but the wife and kids did and they loved it. You basically get on and get led round a big circle by a handler. They stop for a photo op just before they have to dismount.

Food is reasonably priced, and ok in quality. The donuts are really good :)

Loses a point for the manager that put down one of his employees in front of me. Somethings need to be done behind closed doors! It's doesn't create a nice feeling when your about to be served by a staff member and a manager steps in to check up on his employee and then proceeds to call him ridiculous etc etc for something that he just did, which was so minor!!

Overall it's a good day out. We got there at 10am and left at 3pm. It's a place for younger kids. Below 12 I'd say. We were lucky with weather. If it is a rainy day I think it's definately a no go, especially for the money you pay. But on a fair day it is worth it. We also got to see a family of ducks walking around in line. Which went down well with the kids. These ducks seem to have free roam of the farm.

I'd recommend it if you know the weather will be on your side :)

“Fantastic day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Just returned from Fishers Farm, what a great day out. The service levels were some of the best I have experienced (including Disney!). From the entrance where the lady on the desk genuinely was happy to see us and explained all of the attractions timings etc to all of the staff working on the attractions.

After a pretty miserable day at Guildford spectrum experiencing sultry teenagers doing holiday jobs my faith in the next generation has been restored at fishers farm. The girl in the Alpine Lodge coffee shop was particularly good and again was keen to find out how are day was going what rides we had been on.
The kids loved Ben on the bugs who made their day and also made some of the adults laugh! whoever runs the park has clearly set a great standard that not only makes the visitors day it fantastic but is setting the younger workers up for succes in their future careers, well done you!

Price wise I thought it was great value at £40 for a family of three for the day, an hour and a half at the cinema is now near that price!

The food concessions were priced reasonably and the sausage baguettes we had were real sausages not the usual plastic types you get in these parks.

The service continued right to the end of the day when the lady who served us on the cash desk also asked us what we thought of the day on the way out and gave the kids some sweets for the journey home, nice touch!


Overall I would say dont waste money on big soulless theme parks with huge queues, fishers farm is a fantastic simple family experience with something for everyone.

“such fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Just had a great day out with our 5 year old grandson. So much to see and do - we'll have to go again. The staff are very friendly and everything is well organised. We ate in the restaurant and the food was good and well priced.
