We decided to take the trek and travel here with our 1 year old who, due to COVID, hasn’t seen a farm animal in real life.

On arrival, we seen the lovely little farm shop for fresh fruit/veg. We then made our way to the cafe, and we couldn’t have been more warmly met. The barista was top notch. Coffee divine, along with the muffins.

Although small, the farm is brilliant for the little ones. 2 geese strolled around the place like they owned it! We were able to see the ducks, chickens, geese, goats, pigs and donkeys. You can feed them, but we opted not to.

Highly recommend if you are looking for something to do with your little one/s while also having a yummy coffee.

I visited the farm with my son. Farm was small, but we'll kept and taken cared of.
Store has a wide range of product, but didn't notice any organics.

We really enjoyed the food at the restaurant. The only thing that bothered me was the fact that the waiter was asking people to leave the table as soon as they have finishes lunch cause other people were waiting. That was not polite at all.

Farm shop: produce so fresh and reasonably priced. Had delicious lunch in Donkey Shed Restaurant. Pointed out to waitress that there is no "Disabled Parking". Her reaction was rather blasé. Hope she passes on comment to management.

Have attempted to visit the restaurant twice for breakfast. Had heard good things about the cafe. First visit, there was no bacon available as the chef had not ordered same. Second visit today, the only food available was tea/coffee and dessert due to rostering issues. Will not be attempting a third visit. Pity because we always like to support local.

Danny’s Curiosity Shop at Newbarn Farm. This is a great place to visit and something for everyone. A restaurant serving snacks and meals of good quality in nice surroundings. The petting farm for children.
Then there is the farm shop and Danny’s Curiosity Shop with all sorts of wonderful things from times past for sale at fair prices.

I am a regular visitor to New Barn Farm and let me stress that the food is superb. However, the owner is highly rude and is always hovering around waiting to pull the plate from under you as soon as you take your last bite. He unashamedly loiters around the restaurant in dirty shorts, getting under the feet of staff and customers! On one occasion, I was there with a pary of six for no more than hour and he made no bones about the fact that there was a queue forming for tables, yet we also had to queue like everyone else, and therefore are entitled to enjoy our lunch in peace and without being made to feel unwelcome. I really think he could do with taking a step back from "front of house" as his customer services skills are akin to that of one of the pigs on his farm.

Took the little walk around the farm. It was lovely see the animals roam somewhat freely. The shop has a huge range of fresh fruit and veg, nuts and seeds etc. Stopped for some light lunch in The Donkey Shed too.
