I feel this is harsh....just because someone has a 'responsible job' doesnt mean they are going to be more considerate or responsible, I feel that anyone from any back ground with any kind of job or not can be considerate and responsible.

The biggest thing that was apparent to me was how appalling they treat their young staff, they work extremely hard and get treated by the older members off staff like they are of a different class.
We visited the restaurant, and as it states on their website all their food is homemade, hahaha hysterical, I actually watched one of the chefs take a frozen pizza out of its cheap packaging and put it in the microwave, mmmm I think not. As for the rest of the food tasteless and boring and most definately NOT homemade
The indoor play area/ball pool is dirty and the tables and couches are full of old food.
As far as I can see they are just about making money and I would definately not reccomend this place to anyone.
Went there 21 june 2010. Wow my 21 month old had the time of her life. I am an extra worrier, so made up she can climb in a padded area, to go down on a slide. She loved the little tractors, the sand pit, the outdoor climbing slide and tube. She loved mixing with other toddlers the most. The prices were reasonable, and to be honest, I would prefer them to be high. This would stop over crowding. I should imagine too many kids, would spoil the experience, and this way, it is a special treat once a week, rather than the same kids going every day and hogging play areas. You can bring your own food, which makes the day cheaper if you wish, but food is served in a cafe with a high chair. Again if its a special day, I will treat us all. Well Done Farmer Ted!
Been there a few times since, and still very happy, but one thing that spoils it, is some parents letting the over 4's run riot in the under 4's area. Obviously this is dangerous. It isnt policed, and so up to the parent. But as we all know, some parents do not care if they themselves upset other people, and so they cant be expected to worry about their kids. It always seems to be the rough kids, and I have felt my temper going a few times, when parents dont care. I even saw one woman with about 5 kids, laughing as her 5 or six year old climbed above my 23 month old, on somewhere you were not supposed to climb. Raise the prices I say! At least people with responsible jobs realise why you have to be considerate.

missgothic, 21 February 2011:
A rather over priced day out (well a couple of hours at the most).
Over £20 for two adults and two children, then on top of that there is also an additional fee for the quad barrel ride (fee per child!).
The animals are fun, although there isn't many of them, a 20 minute walk around the indoor animal pens is all it took to view them all.
I dont think the rides are supervised enough.....infact there are no staff at all (except in the shop area). Big kids rule the go-cart track so our nephews (age 6 and 4) had to be patient and wait for an opportunity to seize a ride! All of the play equipment; climbing frames, slides and swings etc were all occupied by kids that are too old to use them.
The indoor play area is just as hectic with an over priced shop and rioting, unruly children.
We took our own picnic so cant comment on the restaurant, although other people were eating chips.......In fact thats all we saw people eating! do they serve anything else??
So, to conclude, an over priced few hours, we wont be there again!
my 2 year old loved his trip to farmer teds, we were goin to have his birthday party there but the weather wasnt good so we decided against it. There is a large selection of animals thats he loved looking at, especially the goats with there sky walkway things, they made us all chuckle. There is a large indoor play area with a small toddler section which kept him more than entertained. there is also an outdoor play area and sandpit. They have ride on tractors which i couldnt get my lad off. The prices are reasonible and its a great day out for all the family. There is also a cafe, however we had brought a picnic so cannot comment on the quality of it.
A great place for a family outing. My five-year-old loved the animal barn, which houses goats, sheep, ponies, pigs, chickens and rabbits. Other favoured activities were the giant sandpit, ride-on pedal tractors and large outdoor play area. Tractor rides and barrel rides are also available at extra cost, though the latter was very bumpy and possibly not a good choice for younger children. Indoors, there is a brilliant three-storey soft play area, where the 4+ age group can run wild, and a small under-4s area. Adults can relax on the large squishy sofas, which have an unobstructed view of the play area, for peace of mind. The café sources most of its well-priced food from the adjoining farm shop, so quality is a notch above that normally found in this type of venture. Throughout the day, there were demonstrations of pony grooming, how to milk a cow, even sheep-shearing, all well attended, so plan to arrive at each one early for the best view. My children love Farmer Ted’s, and as the prices aren’t too steep, particularly midweek, so do I.
