Good place and amazing in that it is free! The trouble is you end up comparing it with the paid farm parks and it... isn't really a patch on them. Could be spruced up I think.read more

Lovely place! The food in the cafe is actually worth coming for alone, especially with the free refills on filter... coffee and great farm shop. The animals all seem well cared for and happy.read more

Such a fun filled day out at Windmill Hill City Farm. Initially I stumbled upon the farm and had a look around the... animals and the allotment. I was so inspired that I’ve bought myself some seeds to grow at home. We went back a few days later to eat breakfast in the cafe and had such a good meal. The products tasted fresh and the service was great. Everyone was so friendly and there was a real community feel about the place. There’s undercover seating outside as well which was great on a grey day.They also provide a good selection of vegetarian and vegan food.read more

Love this oasis of nature in the heart of Bristol. The cafe is amazing and really child friendly. And the staff are... very informative, helpful and engaging. My boys both loved exploring the wildlife garden, which they have both visited on school trips where they were shown how to pond dip, fed the animals, foraged in the gardens then cooked up pizzas in the outdoor kitchen. There is so much to this amazing place....but let's keep it as our little secret!read more
