“One of our favourite places”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

As we live so close by, we often come here when money is a little tight or the kids are in need of cheering up. The goats cheer my daughters up every time without fail!
Free entry although a donation is expected and we give what we can every time.
Cafe is lovely, we often go for the posh fish finger sandwich as it's really rather yummy.
All resonably priced and of very high quality. Friendly staff and we love to pet the big dog that snoozes in there.
Playground is great, my daughters are too old for playgrounds but my neice and nephew were big fans on their first visit.
Would def recommend a visit here.

Hi Roswells,

Thanks for your post - it is great to hear how much you love St Werburghs! We want to keep it that way. Keep an eye out on our Facebook site as we are running a number of free family activities over the summer holidays.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the summer

Hi T2T,

Glad your little one enjoyed their visit. Yes, the Farm is free to enter but as a charity we always accept donations. They help to keep the animals fed, watered, happy and healthy and ensure that we can run all of our other community services as well! Hope to see you back soon.

“Brilliant day out with the kids, awesome cafe”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Ah... where to start...
The farm itself: chilled, easy fun, nice atmosphere. Not always loads of animals, but always enough and always an easy, relaxed, day out with the kids.
The new playgound is great.
The cafe is AWESOME : local food, super-fresh, inexpensive, massive portions, and lots of it sourced from the city farm itself. Lovely people, books and toys for kids and an occasional lovely dog: this is one of the few places in Bristol you can take babies and toddlers for lunch, have a proper conversation with your friends (yes, it's true!) and walk away feeling as though you've had a nice relaxing time.
Just magic, I love it here.

Hi 793foodie,

What a lovely review! So glad you find it a magic place... if you enjoy the average day, I would suggest you sign up to the newsletter (visit the website to do so) as it will keep you updated on all of our special events. The next one coming up is the Winter Fair which brings music, a street market, sizzling food, workshops and demonstrations, kids activities and Father Christmas to the Farm for a one day bonanza of fun! Saturday November 24th 12 - 5pm. if you come down, let us know what you think of it...
