“Not worth the money”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

£7.50 for adult entrance plus a £1 for a small cup of feed is far too much to ask considering what's on offer. You get just te same at a free City farm. Plus the cafe is badly run and cramped. We will not be visiting again. Do not waste you money here!

“very disapointing!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I came to the farm thinking it would be a lovely trip out for my family but instead i was very disapointed with what i saw! firstly i thought it was overpriced on the enterance fee, food was very poor qulity for the price and looked like the only person in the cafe was serving on tills and cooking in the kitchen while giving out animal feed! Not a good combination. Definatly in need of more staff and a chef! Would reccomend blackstock farm instead. Do go here!

“Disappointing...”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

First impression is the café - food is not good and overpriced...if you're going to pay £2.50 for beans on toast, you'd hope it a) was warm, b) tasted good and c) didn't have burnt toast. Yes, there was a smattering of different animals about but worth paying £7.50 each for? Definitely not, save your money...very overrated.

“Big disappointment”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We had read the glowing reviews of Blackberry Farm but the reality was very different when we visited this week. The staff seemed overworked and unhappy and the cafe was messy and didn't make you feel like lingering over a coffee. The small animal section was extremely smelly.....I know it's a farm but it was really bad.....and there were only a few animals to see.
The admission prices are high and you don't feel you get good value for your money. Very disappointing.

“Great family day out!!!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

We went for the day with our 2, 5, 12 year old whom all loved it! Although it's still very wet & muddy we thoroughly enjoyed it, the animals were all extremely friendly, well cared for with clean enclosures. The children loved that they could feed the animals & hold them at 'animal handing' time, a highlight was riding the horses/ponies & at only £2 a ride it wasn't bad at all. The park and jumping pillows were also good fun.
Overall it was a great day had by all finished off with a lovely froffy hot chocolate, I'm sure it would be even more enjoyable when dry and sunny
