It was a sunny Friday morning when we visited Willow Farm Cafe, perfect weather to take advantage of the ( free ) outdoor play area.
We arrived at 930am and had our pick of the tables. There is plenty of space to sit inside with room for pushchairs, highchairs etc, and a craft table to keep the kids entertained, handy for rainy weather.
There is also a (covered) outdoor seating area next to the under fives play area, which is gated, so perfect to relax with a coffee and cake while the little ones play safely. My 3 year old loved playing on the small slide and in the ball pit. While my 9 month old enjoyed a fab selection of toys.
While the kids were occupied I browsed the breakfast menu. There is the usual type of breakfast items including a veggie breakfast , all reasonably priced and a children’s option for £3.75.
As well as lunch, snacks and cakes, Willow farm also do an afternoon tea, at the bargain price of £10 per person , presented on a mini picnic bench which looks super cute.
The Children’s menu has something to suit every little one.
After my relaxing cuppa we headed outside. There’s some great equipment such as a big slide and swing for the older ones, ride ons for the little ones , a sand pit and best of all a bouncy castle – great fun. Once my oldest had worn himself out we left with a visit to the goats.
We easily spent a couple of hours at Willow Farm cafe , had lots of fun without breaking the bank. Plus the staff are so friendly and accommodating. It’s definitely worth a visit .
Willow farm is situated on Wigginton Road and can also be reached by public transport. The number 40 bus stops nearby.
