I am glad you enjoyed your visit. I hope you did see the large information sign about the breeding of the fish which is over at the hatchery - we have it there as the hatchery is too problematic to be open to the public....More

Bibury is a delightful place but if you want to take a couple of children to the Trout fishery for fun and catch a few fish to bring home then be ready to outlay over £40. Whether this is expensive will depend on your budget...More

I am sorry you felt your visit was too expensive. The family ticket for £15 for 5 people is not unreasonable, you can stay all day and go in and out if you wish. The trout food enhances the enjoyment but is not obligatory, a...More

Your comments are appreciated. It is a good time of year to visit as it is not so busy now that the school holidays are over.

Went there with fairly low expectation, as it expected it to cater for mainly kids/family. However, it absolutely exceeded expectation and we had a wonderful time. You should definitely buy the trout food to feed the fish!

A must do when in town. We always come here when in this perfect village. This last time I brought my Granddaughter for her high school graduation and she went nuts and she loved feeding the trout and ducks. Well worth the time.

Do not waste your time to see the Bibury Trout Farm. It is surprising that it is so popular. You can skip the town on your tour.More

Although the trout farm is not to everyone's taste I find it strange that you did not appear to like the village either. It is one of the most popular destinations in the country and the Arlington Row one of the most photographed buildings. I...More

We actually were in this area as a "second". We were privileged to a private tour of a manor just down the road from Bibury and that was what was spectacular. Beautiful grounds, beautiful manor and tea and crumpets in the garden patio. At Bibury,...More

Had coffee here and it was awful - hardly any taste to it. It have been because the staff are overstretched as the place is right opposite where the tour buses pull in.

Apologies about the coffee, we have a bean to cup machine so the coffee is freshly ground for each cup and generally is very nice. If you had brought it to our attention we would have offered you an alternative or a refund.
