You cancelled my booking without telling me. Very poor customer service!

The overall experience was good but we did have some issues with service. Two out of the 6 meals were brought out incorrect, they were corrected quickly but when one of those meals is a child's meal the wait for it to be corrected seemed an age. Two of the meals ordered were ploughman's and I have to say that we were very disappointed with the size of them, they come out on swanky wooden boards but for the money the 1 slice of ham and small piece of cheese with the sides did not show good value at all.

We came down from Stamford to visit and take out my aunt 90 year young local and it was top service food and vibe. We will be back with Grandkids

We were disappointed that we had to send our waiter back to the kitchen twice with questions about the chicken dish. Surely all waiting staff should know the makeup of the meals they see serving and if they go to ask questions of the kitchen they would then at least make sure they had covered all the bases before coming back to the table. We were also disappointed that the menu bore no relation to the ‘sample’ menu on your website. Our visit was all the more disappointing because I have eaten at your restaurant often and have always found the food amazing and the staff very efficient.

Small portions - not much mash with sausages. Not many chips with haddock and chips teaspoon of mushy peas. Nice food just meagre portions.

So we had a pretty awful experience. Booked a table for 7 at 1545hrs as we spent the day at the farm. We arrived slightly early but were promptly dealt with and seated. We were given the lunch menu and ordered. About 10-15 minutes later a waitress came to say the kitchen had closed for lunch and there was only a small nibble menu. Obviously we were expecting lunch and the staff were very apologetic. They kindly made lunch for my daughter very hungry as toddlers get, and we had drinks. However because it was an online booking my card details were taken. I spoke to a waitress who was adamant no money would be taken from my card as we were not eating. Today I found £70 has been taken from my card. I immediately called and was assured the manager would call me to rectify and refund my money. Still no phone call. I guess I will try again tomorrow.

I'm glad there are now more vegi options but I think the food is overpriced. Just frozen peas with a dish offering "seasonal vegetables" was a bit of a let down.

Had a super lunch with you, food delicious, lovely relaxed atmosphere, a sit down meal with two 3 year olds and a baby can be challenging at the best of times. They loved their lollies. Thank-you to all the staff as nothing was too much trouble.

Love Jimmy's Farm & restaurant, eating, seeing the animals & of course the bouncy pillow!! It's a bonus that I can do this & eat at the delicious restaurant, great choices for vegetarians & vegans (of which I am one) but my fiends often go for the veggie options too, delicious food, great & happy, staff x

Staff were friendly and efficient but kept rather busy as a number of clients turned up without booking. We found it very enjoyable and a real treat!

The atmosphere was fine, it just so happened that the restaurant was empty apart from us. We attended prior to the Theatre in the Forest and were surprised there were no other diners. The staff were excellent - I suggest no criticism of their friendly and capable service.

Absolutely no service, so many waiters/waitresses, gave zero attention! We ordered, and half of the order was missing! My husband and son had to wait an extra half an hour for their food, by which time we had finished! No urgency & staff didn’t seem bothered! Food was nice but service rubbish!

We ordered fish and chips.. very nice I ordered the ribs, which I only ate about half as the sauce was far to vinagery. The meat was cooked lovely but the sauce let it down. My partner had the pork burger which I also tried and was very stodgy and lacking in flavour. Sadly I wouldn't go here again for food, which is a shame as the settings and buildings are beautiful. The staff were excellent however, I didnt complain at the time, as it is entirely possible that it is just not to my taste.

Waiters and waiteress seemed to be confused woth who was serving us after waiting 10 mins to been seen, we had to walk in to bar and ask . Several waiters etc asked us for our order despite already ordering it. Our mains came half way through our starters and we ordered shoestring fries and got plain fries ?! I ordered 3 sorbets and somehow i only received 2. Hugely disappointed as we travelled for 2 hours just to visit the park and resturant as our 1st anniversary

Just made the waiter aware I found a tiny strip of metal in my roast dinner, would have been worse if child had eaten it as they tend to eat it all before realising whats going on

We came to the ribs and blues night and it did not disappoint. We had a great time. The food was delicious and the music was great. We left full to the brim and will be sure to return! Huge thanks to the team.
