We travel from Kent to visit the butchers and restaurant for special treats. We just wish you was nearer. Each time we visit is a new fabulous experience. Thank you all.

Lovely breakfast prepared with clearly top notch produce. It was a shame my coffee was initially served in a cracked mug, and then simply poured into another rather than being replaced.

Enjoyed our lunch, but it was a little disappointing that at 2 pm on a Sunday there was only 1 nr Beef Roast left, and only belly of pork, as main Roasts, especially as we were all looking forward to the beef !! Perhaps Lamb or Chicken Roast as a third choice could be something to think about in the future ? It was our first visit and service was good, and a lovely venue.

We thoroughly enjoyed Jimmy’s restaurant and the play afterwards but just a comment , staff need to be more knowledgable about the wines on offer . We asked if the rose was dry and she openly admitted that she did not know ! Otherwise a great evening and lovely place

Not having our own transport we use the visits of friends and relatives as an occasion to visit the farm and enjoy the fine food and relaxed atmosphere. Usually it is a breakfast but the last visit was lunch and wow! That pork belly. I’m 70 years old and that was truly the best ever. Well done. Les Williams

The restaurant wasn't full but we had already booked a table. We were welcomed to feel welcome and the staff were pleasant. There was a good menu but not much for vegetarians. The bread was very disappointing and came with a very small amount of butter. Certainly not worth £3.50. Other food was delicious particularly the lamb. Unfortunately there were many wasps and flies but it was the hottest day of the year. I think it would benefit from offering a much lighter menu ie. Salads and sandwiches as not everyone wants or can afford a full lunch. On the whole a nice experience

We booked for my son’s first birthday celebrations and I can not thank the wonderful staff enough. They were absolutely brilliant and so supportive. We were thrilled and although we live in Kuala Lumpur, we will definitely be coming again and recommending Jimmy’s Farm’s restaurant to friends. Time sadly ran away with us so we didn’t have time to go around the farm but the restaurant was great and so beautiful! Thanks everyone!

I was expecting something amazing - for some reason the idea of going to Jimmy's Farm is linked to him. The food was a bit cold, my burger bun was cold and my fires were warm at best. My wife's roll on her bap would have required a massive effort to eat - in the end she ate the bottom half only. Overall the experience was underwhelming. This is a shame as it seems quality would be high on your list seeing the link to Jimmy and his "ethos" around food. I chose not to send anything back. To me if you are running a food establishment than there should be no question about food coming out cold...it is what you do. I did not want to deal with the fun of explaining myself to the staff. Thanks

All in our party were disappointed in the selection on the menu, it was very limited. Portions were small (I left feeling hungry) and the items seemed over priced. My husband had the ribs which he was disappointed to say that they were dry and not very tasty. He was the only person in our party that felt the portion was a decent size and actually felt full afterwards. Furthermore, even though we were sat inside, throughout the meal we were pestered by several wasps. There didn’t seem to be anything being done to stop them. I could understand being pestered if we were sat outside, but we were inside. Overall, I very much doubt we will return.

We were a bit forgotten where we sat and had to go and find staff every time we wanted something. It was also boiling hot with no fans/air con. However, staff were very friendly. Food very good and reasonably priced although I thought a bit tight to charge for an extra child's lolly when my little boy didn't like the raspberry one full of seeds (lovely for an adult but not a young kid). Overall good and enjoyable.

Food too spicy and not as described on the menu. Limited vegetarian choice. Poorly described desserts.

No table was prepared - i’d booked and asked for a highchair. Service was slow. I had to keep getting up to find a waiter to ask for things we needed. Service staff didn’t seem friendly or welcoming. It was hot - as it has been for the last 2 months but there were no fans. Just lots of little things which made it feel like bad value for money because the service was poor.

Service was quite hilariously bad, but food were nice! Children's tomato cheese pasta needs to have the bits/lumps removed - great to try to bribe toddler to eat pieces of veg at home but when you are out and about, an easy choice is needed for an easy life!

Manager was lovely and efficient. However, the waitress forgot to take our order. Asked her for the bill and had to ask a different member of staff again. Having said that the food was delicious and could not be faulted.

One of the worst dining experiences I’ve had. We arrived expectantly looking forward to our meal, having chosen to visit the farm mainly so we could also enjoy the restaurant. What we were met with was a massively reduced menu due to them running out of produce during the previous weekends festival, an offensive amount of flys and utterly indifferent staff. In fact the choices available to us left us eating sausages and mash, a perfect winter warmer dish, in 30 degree heat! The food ranged from barely average to awful, the service was appalling and we gave up complaining about all the things that went wrong. Highlights have to be being served ice cream that had obviously been left out and was served to me as entirely melted chocolate “soup” and being charged for two bottles of water that were served to us incorrectly, twice, and sent back. Don’t know what went wrong but it was totally unacceptable for establishment of this expected standard. Very sad!

our meal was lovely and the staff was very friendly. However, I was constantly having to fan flies away from my food and table. There seemed to be an accumulation of them in the 2 tables at the side of the restaurant. It made me want to eat fast so I could leave to get away from them!
