It costs £50 for two adults and one child which was the same cost as London zoo. Two lattes with powdered milk were a fiver. There was not a huge amount to do and I felt rather cheated. Bits of it felt tacky as well.

Re birthday party I personally don't think it's great. Real school dinner type. We tend to take packed lunches. But for kids it's fine does the job!

I believe willows farm stopped taking vouchers on 8th March 2016. I looked back on previous feedback from others and found this date from the managers response. Hope that helps.
