I have nothing bad to say. The staff were so helpful,thoughtful and friendly it was so refreshing. The high chairs were decent ones at the right height for the table. The food and drinks all came out in great time and it was all really delicious. A very happy family, who would definitely go again. Thank you.

found the menu to be unexciting and the Gluten and Dairy Free menu even less so. I asked for bread and chive butter for a nibble which was on the GF&DF menu. What came was a heated GF roll with dairy chive butter. When I queried this I was told it was DF adaptable so avoid the butter. I had to ask for oils instead and even then only olive oil came. The mains: Sausages and mash which were both GF and DF were ok. My wife who can have everything except Dairy had a BLT as only brioche buns available for burgers. Overall I’d say I was disappointed. The servers weren’t enthusiastic, service was dreadfully slow and the menu wasn’t exciting enough or adaptable enough for those with dietary needs.

Lovely birthday lunch for my Dad. Good food enjoyed by all. One suggestion would be to offer smaller/toddler meals as the plate of tomato & cheese penne pasta from the kid’s menu was more than my 2 year old could eat so it got wasted. Our waitress, long dark hair, didn’t really seem like she wanted to be working. Aside from that - all good thank you.

The entrance to the animal farm itself is overpriced as it is very small. Ice cream ran out and £2 for one scoop with a budget cone. The food was really disappointing as we have eaten here in the past and it was much better. Service was very good and atmosphere was lovely.

We had such a fantastic trip to Jimmy’s Farm! We had travelled from Kent for a 60th birthday and the staff made everything so special. Such a wonderful day and well worth the trip!

The food was brilliant. We booked ahead and everything was set as requested (with two high chairs) and the table was right in front of the open doors which was lovely on a hot day. Only down side what that the service was quite slow, but when they did come to the table they were lovely. With young kids waiting a long time for food can be stressful at the best of times. For a place where younger kids are going to be more probable, they should adopt the practice that other restaurants have which is to bring out children’s meals first - like you would a starter. Also, we waited so long to have our plates taken away that we decided against dessert in the end.

Everything fine apart from a little disappointed with the scrambled eggs - that’s all! Tasted like the powdered type. Not nice. Bacon, sausages, etc, all exceptional. Only our second visit but will definitely be back!

Food was amazing, nothing to fault there. Service was slow waitresses rushed off there feet, didn’t appear to be enough of them, and the 3 adults meals came out with a 5 minute delay for the child’s meal, which wasn’t ideal. Great atmosphere.

I would really like to see a couple of proper vegan options on the menu, rather than just an adaptation of an existing vegetarian option.

Fantastic Head of House, Sharon - who guided a brilliant Team of people. They were all so polite and nothing was too much trouble. They made everyone feel so welcome. Best Sunday Lunch we have had for years. Don't change anything you are doing, as it is working so well.

Thank you for a lovely Mother's day lunch. Bookings we're well managed so that both the serving staff and kitchen weren't swamped. Which meant that as a paying guest myself and my family received the quality and service that I would expect when dining at your establishment.

Plates and cutlery - small plates and juys feel that they need a new set of on trend plates etc. Food - warm but also not enough gravy - very small gravy pots served. Beef was very tough. Menu could have reflected the Farm produce a bit more. portions small. Not really what I thought it would be like. a bit disappointing but the staff are lovely.

Slow service and mistakes made even though the restaurant was quiet! Soggy Yorkshire puddings and no gluten free Yorkshire’s! Lovely manager and keen staff, just young and inexperienced waiters!

Good morning I visited Jimmy’s farm yesterday for a Mothers Day treat lunch and a walk around the farm with my family and overall we had a lovely time but I really feel strongly I need to email with some concerns. My son is 20months old and has egg and nut allergy and when we arrived I was pleased that the person checking us in mentioned his allergy but followed it up by saying so does that mean he cannot have dairy? We corrected her and said no he is fine with dairy he cannot have egg or nuts. So we were taken to our table and given menus when the waitress came to take our order we asked her to check with the chef what on the children’s menu he could have, she didn’t know what we were referring to so we told her is allergic to egg and nuts. To this she said well we have allergy information but I think that is only in regards to dairy and gluten so I will have to check, this we thought was strange but OK. So when she came back she said there was one option (sausage and mash) on the children’s menu that he could have as the chef wasn’t sure about the other things. I asked If he would be OK to have the roast dinner without a Yorkshire pudding she went to ask and came back saying yes the chef said that should be OK (very non-committal) During all this only one of our drinks came over so we had to ask for the other one. Food came and was delicious did not have to wait long and was beautifully presented. We finished and the table was cleared we asked for dessert menus and waited…someone else came to the table to check on us so asked for dessert menus again which this time were delivered quickly. The waiter took our order and we again asked could he check with the kitchen the ice lollies did they have egg or nuts in. He came back and said only the orange and strawberry lolly was dairy free, frustratingly we said he can have dairy we need to know about egg and nuts so he came back and said none of them would be suitable (which I do find difficult to believe) so we asked could maybe he just have some fruit a few raspberries or something like that. Our dessert had arrived in this time and having a chocolate brownie on the table while my poor son had nothing was like torture for him! We were then offered orange slices…OK fine by this point we just wanted something for him. Again dessert was delicious we finished and asked for the bill. Checked the bill and a 60p charge was on the bottom when we queried it we were told it was for the orange slices, as dessert was included in the child’s meal this was very disappointing so we asked for it to be removed which it was. As we were leaving the restaurant was getting busy but we sat down before noon and it really did not seem too busy. Having a child with alleregies is stressful and I feel the staff just did not have knowledge or confidence in dealing with this which in turn made us feel stressed and worried about what were being given. I never complain but I do feel strongly about this and would appreciate your response. Kind regards Chris and Fiona
