Goat centre

I was expecting to see a lot more animals for the price paid, but my children thoroughly enjoyed seeing and feeding the goats. They also loved the play area.

We had a lovely time doing the easter hunt (which was free). Loved seeing all the animals and it was lovely to see how happy the animals appeared

Just me and my daughter of 15....who loves goats. Friendly greeting on arrival. Animals looked quite clean and fed. But there is so much clearing to do here....bits of everything...wood..plastic...general toot lying around, especially in the outside pens, some looked like they are being rested...but why not clear the rubbish? The smaller animals don't have much to do at all.... More

A good day out with our toddler. A play area with slides and such plus ride on tractors, plenty of animals to see and feed in a nice setting and easy walk. For the adults, a very good cafe with fresh tasty hot and gold food and lovely cakes and coffee.

This was our first time going to the goats centre. We had to wait a fair few minutes before someone came to take our money but at least we could stand inside. The small play area is enough of a distraction for a few moments of play before moving on to see the animals. There were plenty to see, llamas,... More

Visited the cafe at lunch time to be told that there was only one bowl of soup left (we wanted two) and there were no burgers left. A pot of tea was served 20 minutes before the meal instead of with it. My meal was hunters chicken which was fairly good except for the salad which was almost totally rocket... More

Hi I am really sorry to hear about your experience at the Farm Yard Café. The Farmyard Café and Farm Shop do have its own trip advisor page as it is a separate business from The Bucks Goat Centre, though not a problem. The owner of the Café has spoken to me and asked that I send his apologies as... More

Meeting my friends and their children for an afternoon here was perfect. Lots to do for everyone and the animals were a lot of fun.

It would have been a lovely morning. Kids enjoyed feeding the animals etc. The play equipment is worn but useable. The cafe was warm and the girl serving us very friendly and attentive. But the kids food was really very disappointing. We paid £5.50 x 2, so £11 for 2 small bowls of undercooked spaghetti with some chopped tomatoes on... More

The play area could do with some TLC but the animals are happy, the cafe is lovely and it's good value compared to Odds Farm etc. There's some interesting shops and a gallery next door too.
